Each of us will support the production of wooden tables based on our experience in the field. By using real wood to build houses, students gain hands-on experience and hone their skills as future craftsmen.
The first day of production
The research project began on Monday, May 27, 2024, and seven students who were in charge of production participated. On the day of the event, drawings of a portion of the wooden table that would become the basis were distributed and the work was done to design it. The students concentrated on measuring detailed dimensions and selecting the appropriate construction method.
Our instructors guided students through each step of the design and provided specific advice and feedback. Drawing on our experience in the field, we taught them design methods that effectively utilize wood that is suitable for the design and cut scraps, as well as various precautions and efficient work methods. Under the guidance of their instructors, the students revised and fine-tuned their design drawings to create a more practical and accurate design. After that, the first day was completed by selecting the appropriate materials for the table, and cutting the parts that would become the legs of the table.
