Making the Cut

Press Staff Writer

        Twelve-year-old Andrew Solomon recently used his skills to make a little library, which he dubbed “Quarantine Book Box” for this year’s 4-H Wood working project.
        Solomon, who will be in seventh-grade at Lake Middle School this fall, has been a member of the Lake Harvesters 4-H Club for five years. This is his second year making a woodworking project.
        The title of the project is called “Making the Cut.” He would have normally competed with his project with in-person judging at the Wood County fairgrounds, with first-, second- and third-place winners typically moving on to compete at the Ohio State Fair. However, because of COVID-19, 4-Hers in Wood County were asked to submit Flipgrid videos and a Google slide presentation by July 17 to compete for placings. Youths also had the option to be judged by their 4-H club leaders complete their project. Since the Ohio State Fair is not being held this year, competition ends at the county level.
        Solomon installed the little library on the corner of Circle Drive and Wilson Court in Crane Creek subdivision off Main Street in Millbury, filling it with some of the many books he and his siblings, Caleb and Madeline, have read over the years.
        All are welcome to take a book to keep and read or leave a book that they no longer need.
