Program Overview

The Carpentry program is designed to prepare students for construction and finish carpentry. Students are trained to construct, erect, install, and repair structures of wood using hand and power tools. Instruction includes systems of framing, types of construction materials, estimating, layout and design of structure, and finish carpentry techniques. Students gain experience by constructing wooden sheds, framing doors and windows, and constructing projects for people in the community. After achieving the skills necessary in rough and finish carpentry, students advance to cabinetmaking, which requires more precise skills. Projects completed may be bookshelves, entertainment centers, and kitchen cabinets. Students may have the opportunity to put their skills to work in actually constructing a modular home. Students take part in every phase of construction.
