Wood Technology 10 is a course that is going to incorporate a traditional woodwork program with new technology (Laser cutter and CNC Router). There are 2 levels of students in this class (Ones that have taken Woodwork last year in Grade 9 and ones that are taking it for the first time in grade 10).
The first part of the course will focus on traditional woodwork and learning machines by completing a laminated project. During this time students will be introduced to how to draw in 2D using Adobe Illustrator, 3D using Autodesk Inventor and in the CNC router software called Vcarve. The use of these programs will allow students to output to a laser engraver or CNC router to enhance their projects appearance!
The second part of the course will see students design and build a project on their own.
The following machines will be covered in a tradition demo/safety test manor to ensure the safe and proper use of the machine. Students will not be able to use a machine until the safety test/demo is complete.
Tutorials coming soon………..
This project is used as an introduction to using woodworking machinery (Jointer, Planer, Tablesaw, Mitre saw and Router). Students may even use a Laser Cutter to engrave and a CNC Router to make a more complicated shape.
