Summary of the Course
Students have the opportunity to build something unique. The project could be a family heirloom passed down for generations. Students will learn more advanced wood working skills to use along with the skills learned from Wood Technology I.
The students choose their own project. They get to make choices from the style of it to the stains and finishes. It’s theirs to take home. They get to decide the type of drawers, handles, moldings, etc... We have articles, videos, and websites that will help with the processes.
Field trips will be taken to wood working industries and community colleges so the students can learn about careers related to wood working.
Students will ...
...demonstrate the ability to work more independently than they did in Woods I.
...get the satisfaction of completing a desired project for themselves or others.
...need to work with the teacher, other students, and their parents while they are constructing their projects.
...develop a deeper knowledge of the machines, tools, techniques, and materials.
...gain knowledge and skills of hand tools and machines.
The students have the opporunity to develop individual projects or work as a team on a project. They will develop a 3 part plan and follow the plan to construct their project. The students will need to pay for the materials used to construct their project. If they decide not to construct their own project, they can work with another student or build a project needed for a fundraiser.
