Step Stools

One of our 2019 skill-builders in Woodwork 9/10 is a step stool – this project incorporates skills including angled table saw cuts, drill press and bandsaw shaping, jigsaw slot-cutting, and dowel-cutting. Students choose their wood species, and they all turned out beautifully! Awesome work, everyone.

Copper Enamelling!

In Spring 2019, a few students decided to try their hand at creating some copper enamelling pieces, with some incredible results! Earrings hand cut, domed, and enamelled by C.H. and V.P. in Grade 11. Belt buckle (first attempt at enamelling this project!) done by V.P.

Skateboard decks

This year was our first attempt at deck-building in the Highland Wood shop! E.M., M.T., and A.J. designed, pressed, shaped, sanded, and finished their own custom-built decks after some learning curves, and they turned out great. Painting done by A.J. on her longboard deck. Awesome work, everyone!
