Machine Drilling

Brahms is currently enrolled in Manufacturing Engineering.  One of the skills he's learning is to program tool paths to cut out designs in pieces of wood using a drill machine.   Every now and then he would bring home some of these pieces to show us what he'd learn.  He seems very proud of what he can do with the drill machine.  Seeing his lessons translated into a tangible object gives him a greater sense of accomplishment compared to just passing a test.  I've suggested that he could make presents for me using his new skills. :)

As if it was only yesterday when he was struggling (twisting his lips and jaws) to use the scissors to cut out pieces of paper.
