Students in the Roland-Story afternoon agriculture education I class are spending their last few weeks of the semester learning about basic woodshop practices as they fabricate miniature basketball backboards and candy dispensing machines as class projects.

The students in the class are learning about preparing and finishing a wood project using basic power tools such as band saws, sanders, drills and routers and are also learning about paints, stains and varnishes.
