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.

Laminated Projects

A selection of beautiful cutting boards/serving platters made by Woodworking students this year – J.M. did our first-ever diagonal design! Students select their wood species, learn how to calculate board feet to price out a project, and design their dimensions. Great work, everyone!

Wood 8 projects

Wow! Check out these great projects by some of our Spring 2019 Wood 8 students! For many of these students, it is their first time using tools and machines. In our short time together, students create a whistle and a gumball machine, as well as an intarsia project if they have time.

Junior Woodworking

A selection of projects by our Fall 2018 Junior Woodwork course! Students choose wood species and dimensions, and create an assortment of introductory projects. Featured here are cutting boards/serving platters, a tablet/recipe book holder, and a step stool. Excellent work!

 

In memoriam

Our friend, mentor, Teacher-on-Call, and retired shop teacher, Graeme McFadyen, passed away in Spring 2018. Two students, L.M. and D.S. found a partially-completed bowl that Graeme had been working on, finished it, and wood-burned a memoriam by hand. This bowl will be on display in our shop to commemorate Mr. McFadyen, and all that he has done for the Comox Valley community over the past several decades. R.I.P.
