A new day with new challenges.

Had a long day today. Started the day off by continuing to draw my Chippendale desk on frame got alot done on it. Then we had a lecture on bandsaw safety and we all cut out two push sticks as an exercise. We have an incredibly large bandsaw in addition to our 14 incher. The blades for this thing are around 20 feet I believe? Huge.
Then after some more drawing we had our chisel block exercise. We chamfer the block we hand planed with our 1 inch chisel. We have to do a stop chamfer on the long grain edges and I screwed around on a scrap and learned a lambs tounge.

    On these assignments are you given a “grade” or how is the whole process of deciding a student is worthy facilitated?
    I guess what I’m asking is do they allow a student to progress through the school no matter whether they’re good craftsmen(women) or not?
    ps…not to say your chamfer was an “A” or an F”…just wondering

      We don’t get graded on them but to ensure quality we have to get them checked out with one of the three teachers. If not approved they will help the student figure out and solve the issue. This ensures everyone achieves a high result.
