Woodwork at the fore
Ten Year 11 students in Industrial Technology: Timber Products and Furniture Technologies have just completed a Modern End Table project.
Week 9 term 3, 2023 Ten Year 11 students in Industrial Technology: Timber Products and Furniture Technologies have just completed a Modern End Table project under the guidance of Mr Forbes-Taber. The project is designed to replicate the processes that students will undertake in their HSC, when they create their own Major Projects and Mr Forbes-Taber said he was quite impressed with the level of effort each student put in during the project. “This project is aimed at developing students’ skills and techniques, while using a variety of tools, machinery, materials and finishes so they can experience the challenge of designing, producing and managing a project from commencement to completion.” Students were able to make design modifications to the default End Table design and were required to document their project management processes in a folio that is very similar to the HSC Folio they will be required to commence next term. Students selected their timber from a range of Australian Hardwoods and learned industrial machining techniques for ensuring their timber stayed straight and true. All students completed the project over an 18 week period, and students were stoked with the final results.
