Much, Much More than Napkin Holders and Towel Racks: An Exhibit by Morristown High School Woodshop Students

Much, Much More than Napkin Holders and Towel Racks: An Exhibit by Morristown High School Woodshop Students
The Morristown High School Woodworking Program will be displaying some student work in the library from November 28, 2012 through January 6, 2013. The opening for the exhibit will be held on Wednesday, November 28 at 7:00 p.m. in the Library’s second level Kirby Gallery.

Do you remember the projects you made in woodshop when you were in school? Most people do, and many people still have what they made. In fact, even if you did not take a woodworking course in high school, most people have distinct memories of a project they imagined in their mind and then created with their hands. This important process of taking a dream, making a plan, creating the object and then reflecting and sharing with others, is thriving in the MHS Wood Shop.

The Morristown High School Woodworking Program will be highlighing this process by sharing some of the student work that has been created. Some of the projects on display are pencil boxes, jewelry boxes, boxes with drawers, solid bowls, segmented bowls and wood plates. The show highlights projects of different skill levels and shows the variety of ideas students have designed. Each unique design presents new problems for the students to work through in order to achieve their desired result. This specific process of problem solving is taught in all Technology Education courses in Morristown High.
