Boxes

Our Grade 11 students complete a “Beverage Holder”/multi-purpose box as a skill-builder, and use every machine in the shop to create them. Excellent work featured here by A.P. and M.B.!

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.

Wood lathe projects

A few wood lathe projects from last Spring, made by some of our keener Grade 8 students! First photo is a foot massager made as an early Mother’s Day gift by S.B., and the stylish fish-bonker was made by C.H. for a Father’s Day present (wood-burning and design all done by hand). Great work, folks!
