Our woodshop is fully equipped with hand tools and power tools that each student will learn to use safely and with confidence, including a table saw, chop saw, drill press, lathe, planer and more. The only adaptation we use is the click rule for precise measurements.
Students will also learn and grow confident in basic household tasks such as minor repairs, fixing a leaky faucet, hanging a picture, or assembling a bookshelf.
Before graduation students complete a woodshop project of their own choosing. Projects range from cutting boards to music boxes and small tables, but the real product is a sense of confidence and accomplishment!
