Construction

This course is an introduction to safety, tool, and machine use in industrial shops. The course revolves around metal fabrication, welding and wood construction. The focus of metal fabrication is the exploration of the natural qualities and uses of metal in our daily life. Useful projects such as decorative boxes and fold out tables are constructed as well as machine maintenance and safety. Students are challenged in welding fabrication when they are introduced to new techniques and styles. Wood work becomes more elaborate. Projects involving wood joints and more precise “fit up” are learned. Creating a personal inventory and fine tuning ones set of marketable skills is a highlight of this course. Correct tool choice, problem solving, planning and construction mastery are highlighted through the course.
