Student in the Roland-Story agriculture shop class have undertaken a new project this spring in which each student is designing and fabricating an outdoor wooden sign.

The purpose of the project is to apply knowledge learned in prior projects and apply them to this larger project. Students have previously learned about equipment and safety, preparing lumber for projects and various finishing methods such as paints, stains and preservatives.

“I’ve had a lot of fun constructing this project because of the particular things I’ve learned about in the smaller projects that we’ve completed prior to this one,” said student John Pepper.
