Kingman Island Signs

We were invited to create cedar signs for the newly opened Kingman Island, which is in the middle of the Anacostia River, between RFK Stadium and the east side, south of the Pepco plant in near SE Washington. This project was commissioned by the Anacostia Waterfront Corporation - we thank them for their generous support.

In process at the shop....

...and installed at Kingman Island!

Edgar, Fred, Dominic, Cherrell and Preston (not his Escalade) are truly accomplished woodworkers. They are about to enter the world of production - be sure to come out to Eastern Market soon to see their wares!

Thanks Jim! We'll miss you!

Jim Bradshaw (pictured, center, with the afternoon Artisans) came to Covenant House Washington after learning about what we were doing from reading the Washington Post article that ran in December of 2005, and has been a dedicated volunteer, woodworking mentor, and expert photographer for our youth and staff. Many of his photos appear on this blog.

Jim will be relocating to South Carolina next month, and we will miss him dearly.

Thank you, Jim, for your dedication, excitement, and hopes for our youths' success. Best of luck to you in SC, and you know that you can come back to use our shop anytime!
