This is an introductory woodworking course designed to teach students basic
woodworking theory, blue print reading, safety, hand/power tool and machinery skills. Students will complete a variety of projects such as a skill block, sanding block and foot stool/saw pony.
This is an intermediate course designed to further the hand and power tool skills and knowledge learnt in the introductory woodworking course. Students will focus on being able to plan projects and operate machinery with production work being introduced. Students will complete a detailed solid wood clock or checkerboard with a drawer. Students who choose to take 5 credits will be exposed to set/house construction and will have the opportunity to enrich their clock project.
For this course students will be required to plan and build their own larger scale furniture project. The individualized nature of the course is designed to prepare students for an entry level position in the building trades. Project choices may include a steamer trunk, coffee table, desk, chest of drawers, bed frame, card table or other project that fits curricular outcomes. Students may also opt for shed or set construction. An emphasis will be put on jobsite skills as this course will prepare students for entry level positions in the building construction field.
