Furniture Construction

The Furniture Construction Program provides students with a wide range of opportunities to explore the exciting world of project-based learning in the areas of furniture building.

Students’ progress and advancement is based on completion of projects and demonstrations of skills. Students may progress through the clusters according to ability and interest, although instructors’ recommendations play an important role in student placement. Students with a high level of interest may take more courses at the 20 and 30 levels.

Furniture Construction 10

5 Credits | Prerequisite: Completion of prerequisite courses as outlined by Alberta
Education. Students must have successfully completed all SAFETY instruction before continuing in the program.

Students will develop skills in the use of hand tools and woodworking machines and apply them to building a cutting board, small bench, and table of their own design. Experience in the set project (bench) will build skills and prepare the student for the challenge of building his/her own project (table).

Furniture Construction 20

5 Credits | Prerequisite: Completion of pre-requisite and recommended courses from Furniture Construction 10. Students must have successfully completed all SAFETY instruction before continuing in the program.

This is a program for students with a strong desire to design and build their own furniture. It is an open-ended, project-based program where students, after a safety review, are encouraged to extend themselves and produce a fine pieces of furniture. This area of study is dedicated to OUTDOOR furniture. These students will make a twin set of lawn chairs, and small additional pieces if they finish early.

Furniture Construction 30

5 Credits | Prerequisite: Completion of pre-requisite and recommended courses from Furniture Construction 20. Students must have successfully completed all SAFETY instruction before continuing in the program.

The motivated and organized student will take on and complete a major furniture project or group of smaller projects. After a safety review and shakedown project, students will begin with design, planning, and project organization, and then proceed with primarily self-directed shop work. The focus will be on developing the student’s ability to research, plan, organize and carry a project through to completion with a minimum of supervision. Examples are dining tables, wardrobe units, grandfather clocks and commissioned custom work.

Metal Technology

Metal Technology 10

5 Credits | Prerequisite: Completion of prerequisite courses as outlined by Alberta Education. Students must have successfully completed all SAFETY instruction before continuing in the program.

If you enjoy working with your hands, using tools and equipment to make useful and interesting projects then Metal Technology is for you. The student learning courses will provide you with the opportunity to gain experience in the use of power and hand tools, working with various thickness of metal such as plate, rod, satin coat and galvanized steel. Soldering using roofing irons, oxyacetylene welding and high velocity spray painting are taught in making a variety of projects.

Metal Technology 20A

5 Credits | Prerequisite: Completion of prerequisite and recommended courses from Metal Tech 10. Students must have successfully completed all SAFETY instruction before continuing in the program.

This program involves the building of more complicated projects and more in depth study of metal work. Layout for rectangular and cylindrical shaped projects is introduced. Exposure to both Arc and Mig welding occur in this cluster. Students may register for either Metal Tech 20A, 20B or both programs.

Metal Technology 20B

5 Credits | Prerequisite: Completion of prerequisite and recommended courses from Metal Tech 10. Students must have successfully completed all SAFETY instruction before continuing in the program.

Metal Technology 30AB

5 Credits | Prerequisite: Completion of prerequisite and recommended courses from Metal Tech 20. Students must have successfully completed all SAFETY instruction before continuing in the program.

Here the projects become more advanced. Students should be competent in various forms of fastening, gas and arc welding as well as design techniques. Students are expected to bring their own ideas for projects in this cluster and may be required to perform customer work involving purchasing, estimating, drafting and fabrication. Students may register for either Metal Tech 30A, 30B or both programs.
