This course has been designed to introduce students to the tools, equipment, safety, and technologies used in woodworking and building construction.
Students in this course will complete a series of projects which are structured in order to introduce students to most of the tools in this workshop. Each project will build upon the skills learned in the previous project, while introducing new skills as well.
Safety is emphasized in this class, and all students must complete a workbook which teaches tool safety. All students will also take a series of safety tests, which will cover the use of each tool that will be used. A score of 100% will be required on each safety test in order for the student to use each tool.
Upon completing this course, a student should be able to identify and safely use any of the tools in this shop. The student should also know which tool to use for any particular purpose.
