The PEA version of round wood woodworking is not dissimilar to the PEP version. It is still about using unprocessed wood to create new things without glue and largely without metal. As with the other badge, power tools may sometimes be used, though generally unpowered items are preferred. If required, it will be so noted. Much of it works green wood into a form, then allows it to cure after. Unlike the other badge, almost every project at the lowest badge is something small. The assumption is that initially, space will be at a premium. The badge is about developing the same basic skill understandings needed to move forward on larger projects once one is free to do so.
