They also had some discretion in the materials and methods used to build the picture/pen holder. Camilo chose to build his from one larger solid piece of wood, and William chose to follow the teacher's suggestions for gluing together smaller blocks of wood.
The boys started by cutting out the smaller blocks for William's approach on the table saw. They got to see the benefits of using a fingerboard and also clamping a block to the fence for making blocks all the same length.

Unfortunately, I didn't take any more pictures of their work except the finished product from Camilo, as shown below:
