Wood Technology courses include both design and fabrication; students in wood technology will work hand-in-hand with other CTE students to design and build projects. Coursework includes not only design and fabrication but also computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD-CAM). Students will first be introduced to the technology of woodworking: jointer, planer, table saw, band saw, drill press, shaper, router, CNC machining, sharpening, joinery, assembly and finishing. Courses are project-based, class sizes are small, safety is at the core, and technique and procedure drive the projects. There is open laboratory time for working on independent projects. This provides the opportunity for advanced practice with emphasis on complex planning and structures.
