TSJC creates fine design

Posted: Saturday, Sep 29th, 2012

Jim Relyea, right, officially presents a unique one-of-a-kind conference table to Luke Yoder, director of the Center for Restorative Programs. Instructor Relyea’s fine woodworking students at Trinidad State Junior College-Valley Campus, Alamosa, crafted the beautiful table. The class is comprised of high school and college students. The restorative center formerly used a metal table that the board could not fit around. “They came to me and wondered if we would build them a table and gave me dimensions, and I said ‘sure’,” Relyea said. The symbol on the table represents the center’s logo. Relyea said his woodworking students have built items for other nonprofit organizations as well as local businesses and are always glad for the experience and challenge. For example, they have created numerous computer tables for the Rio Grande Library as well as items for the hospital and social services departments in Alamosa. “I am interested in building whatever I can for anybody,” Relyea said.
