The Woodwork program begins in Grade 5.  Using hand tools like  the rasp and gouge, Students create functional, beautiful objects, including bulb planters, spoons and bowls.  The culmination of the four years of Woodwork study is the creation of a wooden stool by each Grade 8 student.  The students start by splitting a green ash log, use mortise and tenon joints to connect the parts, and finish with a dried red oak seat.  The result of their hard work is a cherished item of furniture: lovely, practical and durable.
