…does whatever a spider-bench does!
This year’s Introduction to Trades students are doing a Bench Challenge, where they must design and build a bench that both of them (or 3 of them) can sit on, with limited 2×4 lumber and all basic carpentry tools and machines used. T.C. and L.R. in Grade 9 went above and beyond, and even had time to paint their project. Great work!
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!
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!
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.
These picnic tables were built, sanded, and painted by Trades 9/10 students, then donated to local daycares. Fantastic work by all, and way to contribute to the community!
In-progress carpentry mock-ups! Students learn how to use skill saws, mitre saws, table saws, and a variety of carpentry tools.
Happy 2017-2018 school year, everyone! Welcome back.
A few of our Trades 10 students, who wanted to try a new project this year, built this awesome pilot project: a kids’ picnic table. We’ll be donating these to local daycares and pre-schools! Way to go J.M-J., I.H., C.S., and W.G.
Our Trades class raised their first mock-up wall, and it looked fantastic!
Intro to Trades 9/10 students are working on their excellent Mock-up projects: here we have J.R. putting the finishing touches on her group’s window sill.
