THIS PROJECT. This is a one-off due to many factors – most especially J.M.’s drive, adamant proposal and research, and the fact that in 2020-21, we had a lot more flexibility due to double blocks. And WOW. Here are a few captures of this live-edge, clear epoxy resin dining room table top (a.k.a. “river table”). Excellent work, J.M.!!!!
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!
This beauty was created as a self-directed project by E.A. and J.L.L. in Trades 10! Crafted out of cedar, this bench is heading out to the Cumberland forest, on a mountain bike trail being built by E.A. himself. Excellent work, and can’t wait to see it on future rides!
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!
Grade 12 student C.B. designed this amazing table – he welded the base in our Jewelry/Metalwork class, and C.F. and W.G. in Senior Woodwork helped him out with the gorgeous cherry tabletop. Excellent work!
