Pictures and Projects

Advanced students propose and choose their own projects, and work on them independently or in groups under Mr. Markham’s supervision. Advanced students can learn new tools such as the lathe, hollow chisel mortiser, shaper and CNC router. Students have made cabinets, tables, fancy boxes, speaker enclosures, elaborate carvings and signs, among many other projects. Students learn basic elements of good design, get better at planning and organization, and are encouraged to collaborate and help each other in completing projects. As confidence and abilities improve, students show greater motivation and initiative, and improve in their ability to use technology to creatively solve problems. Throughout the class, safe behavior is practiced, and students acquire a positive sense of ownership of the shop.
