Senior Projects – Woodworking

Students that show an interest in further woodworking experience and education will have the opportunity to complete a “Senior Project.”  Senior projects are done one-on-one with the wood shop instructor and are  typically more advanced than their classroom work.  These projects are then kept by the students.  Each Senior Project focuses on the following:

1. The design and planing process

2. Further development of tool knowledge and other woodworking techniques

3. An understanding of the importance of time planning and management with an ongoing project

4. Continuing safety education

5. Development of confidence and respect for quality craftsmanship in themselves and others

With the exception of a few, most of the students at Salem gains knowledge of woodworking and goes through at least the basic program.  Advanced classes are for those students who have an aptitude and interest in further development.
