Local 291 member Len Taylor is passing down his carpentry skills to his sons, just like his father and his grandfather did to him.
Local 291 journeyman Len and his sons, Jacob (15) and Daniel (10), have always been creative with their hands and working with whatever materials they have in their workshop at their home in Duanesburg, NY. It was no surprise then, when a casual conversation over dinner about Len’s union hardhat sticker quickly turned into a family pandemic project.
The trio worked together to create a striking three-dimensional sign that emulates a Local 291 sticker. The process included scanning and printing off the sticker, graphing it onto plywood and cutting it out with a 1956 scroll saw – a model which belonged to Len’s grandfather and has been passed down through the generations.
The sign now proudly greets everyone that enters the Local Hall in Albany. We’d like to thank them for their time, skills and creativity; it looks like Jacob and Daniel have their eyes set on carving successful careers in the trades!
