Stunning work by J.M. – this was a small practise for her BIG project (see next post).
Awesome work by T.V. & K.G.! That Biggie woodburn? Done completely by hand! And K.G. put her amazing art skills to work on her custom longboard. We also learned the hard way that you CAN vacuum press a board in the apocalypse/when all the power goes out at the worst time :).
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!
Woodwork 9/10 students created these keepsake boxes with their chosen wood types and dimensions, and they turned out beautifully! Love that zebra alder :).
Grade 8s have a quick run in the Woodwork shop, but get to try their hand at several tools and machines, and add personal touches to their projects. Pictured here are some great whistles, and all wood-burning was done by hand with a wood-burning pen. Great work, everyone!
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!
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.
