This Week in the Shop: Cardboard Prototypes

This week’s word:  Prototypes.  Brought to you by the letter C for cardboard.

What a week!  My students spent last week drawing and planning and designing and planning and planning.  We got outside this week!

My chair group is off to a fast start.  Both “makers” have created cardboard prototypes for their chairs, while the “mending” crew has put a coat of pink acrylic on a repaired kitchen chair.  I will be milling parts this weekend to save my students some construction time.

The drum casings have been prototyped also (I was looking for sizes and the students could get a feel for the construction process).

Bigger and better next week!

Make it safe & keep the rubber side down.
