Builder Boards were created by Jack McKee, a builder, designer, teacher and writer in Bellingham, WA.  He worked as a handyman, remodeled houses, built small boats, designed (and built) equipment used by children with special needs, schools, and children’s museums. Jack worked at a Montessori school teaching “shop” to preschoolers, taught woodworking and science for the local parks department, had a traveling science caravan which visited schools, taught “Woodworking for Kids,” a workshop for teachers. He helped kids build boats, log buildings and cardboard domes. His articles have appeared in Home Education, Tech Directions, Early Childhood Today, Wooden Boat, and on various internet sites. He has written two books, Woodshop For Kids and Builder Boards.
