Course Description -
This course is designed to build on the skills that have been developed in the Industrial Technology 7, 8, and 9 courses. During the theory part of this course we will analyze special woodworking procedures, furniture/cabinetwork, drawer/door construction, laminating/bending wood, synthetic surface materials, and upholstery. We will also have study units on adhesives/clamping procedures, mechanical fasteners/assembly, sanding and finishing. After written competency is attained in the theory part of this course, a safety brush up unit will be studied, and a safety test passed. The lab part of the course is for you to design, build, and finish larger projects than in the introductory courses.
