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.

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!

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.
