We are coming to the end of our Wood Joinery unit. We have practiced and learned to work with hand tools and created several wood joints. We are still working on our last stabilizing element. The wood joinery structure you created are like a detail of a timber framework.
ON MONDAY WILL BE OUR MIDTERM EXAM below see vocabulary. Please study by looking over your notes and practicing recalling the terminology.
The midterm will cover the UNIT_1 Structure and UNIT_2 Wood Joinery
