Creative Woodworking II
Creative Woodworking II is a continuation of the skills learned in Creative Woodworking I. Continued emphasis on the safe and effective use of hand and power tools used in the fabrication of both sculptural and functional wooden objects is presented to students through a series of increasingly complex projects of their own choosing and design. An increased level of craftsmanship and attention to detail is expected through the use of a more refined design and engineering process. The use of multi-view and isometric drawings as illustration tools is emphasized as part of that process. Students are exposed to a wide variety of techniques and processes such as laminating, woodturning, carving, bending, wood joinery and finishing. Among the project possibilities are cabinets, furniture, toys, containers, household items, and sculptural objects.
