As an introductory project in Woodwork 9/10, students choose a laminated project. The students featured here designed and created tablet/textbook/cookbook holders, and used nearly every machine in the shop to complete them. Excellent work, folks!
Sterling silver castings made by Senior Jewelry students. Students learn the entire process, including mounting and investing, casting with a centrifugal basin and crucible, and finishing and polishing.
Some incredible work by our Spring 2019 Senior Jewelry students! Featured here are a brass and a sterling version of the Russian Wedding Band (three interlocking rings), and a copper/silver sweat-soldered ring made by L.M. in Grade 11. Excellent work, everyone!
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!
Our first adult-sized picnic table (donated to a local Early Child Education centre here in the Comox Valley), as well as our Spring 2019 tables donated to various daycares in our community. Excellent work, everyone!
An assortment of creative projects designed and created by our Spring 2019 Senior Jewelry students. V.P. in Grade 11 wanted to try something a bit different, and riveted, shaped, and tempered the multi-layer flower pictured here. Also included are sweat-soldered projects, and a bestie puzzle pendant (one piece for each of six pals). Amazing work, everyone!
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.
One of our intro projects in Senior Jewelry – bonus points if students can cut the whole shape out in one go! E.C. in Grade 11 used his to style up his lighter, and this other little fella looks pretty stealthy…
Our Fall 2018 Trades 9/10 students created these amazing kids’ picnic tables. All of them were donated to local daycares as a Community-Building project here in the Comox Valley. It’s so rewarding for our students to see their work being used by others in our community, especially when we have the wee ones come by our shops to pick them up! Great work, everyone.
