Juneau-Douglas High School students in Craig Mapes' Creative Woods class pose Tuesday next to their new "Saw Stop" safe table saw that the Southeast Alaska Building Industry Association and Alaska Marine Lines donated to the the Juneau School District. SEABIA purchased the high quality saw with the most advanced safety technology ever developed for a cost of $4,000. AML donated over $200 in shipping the saw to Juneau. Among the students from left are: Peggy Cowen, Juneau School District superintendent; Bernie Sorenson, JDHS principal; John Wood, SEABIA president-elect; Russ McDougal, SEABIA president; and Mike Stewart, from AML. Mapes also thanks Mark Choate for his efforts in obtaining this safe and necessary tool. For more information on the quality and safety of the saw visit www.sawstop.com.
