Students in the Roland-Story agricultural shop class have begun their first projects in class this semester with the construction of a hand tool board. This project requires the students to use only hand tools.

“This project is designed to introduce the students to the various hand tools and how to properly/safely use them,” said Brad Taylor, class instructor.

Some of the hand tools that were demonstrated included back saws, cross cut saws, rip saws, coping saws, chisels, planes, hand drills and wood braces, wood files and sanding.
