Woodwork

WOODWORK 8
 
This is a 6 week course that introduces students to basic woodworking skills. Safe work habits will be stressed and maintained at all times. We will be working on several small projects with the main focus being on hand tools. Students will be exposed to all stages of project building from layout, shaping, sanding and finishing. Students in the grade 8 rotation will learn the skills to draw and match three dimensional drawings to two dimensional ones.
 
 
WOODWORK 9
 
Students in Woodworking 9 will learn how to safely and effectively use power tools utilized in the wood shop. They will also learn the order of operations and be able to measure and lay out project components. Students will begin with rough lumber and use the skills and equipment to build a number of different yet challenging projects. The CNC router will also be available to enhance the projects by allowing students to engrave designs and logos onto their individual projects.
 
 
WOODWORK 10
 
The Woodwork 10 course emphasizes student safety throughout the course as students learn to use both hand and power tools in a safe and proper manner. Projects that are worked on in class will require students to perform a variety of tasks to complete each step in the planning, drawing, constructing and finishing stages. They will learn how to interpret project plans and be able to select the proper resources. During the construction stage students will also learn how their project design is impacted by social, ethical and sustainability considerations.
 
Students who have successfully completed Woodwork 9 will be able to work on more advanced projects than students taking this course for the first time.
 
Students are required to provide their own safety goggles/eye protection, hearing protection and tape measure.
 
 
 
DRAFTING 10
 

Computer Assisted Aided Drawing (CAAD) is one of the fastest growing programs in education technology in BC. It is an excellent course for both males and females.  CAD is used in a wide variety of occupations including dress designers, fire departments, the forest industry, construction, as well as traditional uses in shops.  You will learn the method of drafting most professionals use now.  The material covered in the course includes drawing such objects as machine parts, house plans, and furniture on computers.

 

The course teaches you the fundamentals of 2 dimensional drafting through a series of 10 modules using Autocad.  When the modules are completed you can choose to explore your own area of study from topics such as 3-D drafting, 3-D modeling and animation, and CNC router operation.

 

 

 
WOODWORK 11
 
Prerequisite: Woodworking 10 preferred
 

In the Carpentry and Joinery 11 course students are exposed to the WHIMIS regulations and are trained to use the power equipment found in the woodshop. There is a large focus on safety and accident prevention during the first few weeks and these procedures are to be used throughout the course.  During the production of projects students begin by interpreting technical drawings or producing design sketches.  Students are then expected to complete projects using both hand and machine tools that use a number of different wood joints.  Students take the WoodLINKS curriculum, which includes current industry trends as well as exposing them to vast amount of information and resources on wood processing.  Students are also encouraged to utilize the CNC Router into a part of one of their projects.

 

 

 
 
WOODWORK 12
 

Prerequisite:  Carpentry and Joinery 11

 

In the Carpentry and Joinery 12 course students are exposed to the WHIMIS regulations and are trained to use all the power equipment found in the woodshop. Students are expected to apply safe work practices when completing personal projects as there is a large focus on safety and accident prevention during the first few weeks and it is reinforced throughout the course.  During the production of projects students begin by interpreting technical drawings or producing design sketches, and demonstrate proficiency in using a variety of measuring instruments, layout tools, and mathematical techniques to solving technical problems.  Students are then expected to complete projects that incorporate a number of different wood joints using both hand and machine tools.  CJ 12 students are also exposed to working with engineered wood products and composite materials.  The WoodLINKS curriculum incorporates current industry trends as well as exposing students to vast amount of information and resources on wood processing and production techniques.  Students are encouraged to utilize the CNC Router into part of one of their projects.
