Senior Woodwork Laminated Projects

In early 2020, our Senior Woodwork class kicked off the year with a simple introductory project to get back into the swing of things while we went through safety (many had not ever taken Woodwork, or had not taken Woodwork since Grade 8!).

All project dimensions, wood species, and details were chosen and designed by students. Of particular note are L.P.’s intricate moon woodburning, the gorgeous cherry and padouk serving platter with flower woodburning, S.G.’s live-edge platter, and L.S. overcoming some huge challenges and frustrations with her amazing chevron cutting board. WOW! Wonderful job, folks!

Woodworking 9/10 Cutting Boards

These cutting boards were many students’ FIRST-ever woodworking projects. Students design their dimensions, wood types, and layout, and learn most of our bigger machines (jointer, planer, table saw, mitre saw) through this project, as well as foundational laminating and layout skills. Beautiful work, everyone!

2019-2020 Creative Projects!

The 2019-2020 round of sweat-soldered creative projects in Jewelry 11/12 was STUNNING! Way to go, everyone!

Students choose a design, plan their layout, and choose a minimum of 2 different metals to use. All cutting is done by hand with a jewellers’ saw, and all sanding and finishing is done by hand as well. Great work!
