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!

Cross-curricular coffee table

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!

 

Junior Woodworking

A selection of projects by our Fall 2018 Junior Woodwork course! Students choose wood species and dimensions, and create an assortment of introductory projects. Featured here are cutting boards/serving platters, a tablet/recipe book holder, and a step stool. Excellent work!
