Workshop Information

Country
United States
I am a High School Teacher in Texas. TEKs have many names, however, it is essentially still Wood Shop or Woodworking that I teach. I will share some of my students' project photos and look for new and different ideas for future projects to keep them interested and challenged at the same time. Please only comment if you are positive and willing to share ideas.

Your students have done some very nice work!

How about some pictures of the shop itself? We always appreciate seeing the shop and tools used to create the projects you post.

Chase, I still have a couple of projects that my younger son made when he took shop in high school. They were pretty basic projects- a toy car and bubble gum dispenser. But I still have them nonetheless and his sons have enjoyed playing with them. The projects that your kids are putting together are far more advanced and certainly show an aptitude for woodworking. It would be interesting to see pictures of the shop that the kids are using to turn out these projects.

Your students are doing some nice work… I still have the pencil box I made in 7th grade wood shop… I am glad my projects no longer look like that! But at least it was durable!

That checkerboard topped table looks awesome.

I really appreciate your positive comments! I will get some shop photos up soon. After 18+ years building houses and working construction, I became a teacher and this was my first year teaching in a high school. The school I work in was all but destroyed by the students last year due to the teacher not watching them and letting them make weapons and ruin the tools. Of course, that is why he was not asked back and I was welcomed to the staff! So, the shop pictures will show you how we had to get creative with what we got until I can get the new tools next year! By the way, I love my job! Advice on school competition sites like SkillsUSA for next year would be great too! Thanks again! Chase
