Walk into the Sherwood High School construction classroom and you might be surprised at the wide variety of projects students are working on. Their teacher, Jon Dickover, has his students learn the basics of construction safety, complete some required projects, then encourages them to get creative. This results in everything from artistic bowls to skateboards to lawn chairs.
Here's what some Sherwood High School construction students said about the class:
"We get to create our own projects. It's awesome."
"I'm working on a desk right now. It's a little more complicated but I really like challenging myself."
"I love the independence. I can express myself in this class."
"For my job I'd like to work with my hands. In my freetime I'll just grab a piece of wood and start carving."
"It's something different everyday."
And here are a few photos of the hardworking woodworkers in action:
