Overview
There is a strong emphasis on workshop safety. Students use hand tools, hand held power tools, and stationary machines to make a variety of products. A number of different woodworking joints, and techniques are investigated. Skills tasks involve critiquing raw material types (i.e. solid timber vs. manufactured boards), and making a small set piece of furniture. These two tasks are designed to provide students with the skills and knowledge to undertake the folio task, which is to research and design a piece of furniture.
