Scholars Build Themselves Picnic Tables for Outside Lunch

For the past four weeks students in Carpentry 2 and the practicum course have been measuring and cutting angles, table tops, cleats, braces, and benches using pressure-treated lumber to construct six six-foot picnic tables. They’ve had to use a miter saw, circular saw, framing square, speed square, t square, various levels, cordless screw gun, measuring tape, and sander to make these accurate and comfortable. The tables will be placed around the IDEA campus so scholars can enjoy lunch outside.
