Hasta La Vista!

Final Review-As Nicole posted, we had our final review on Monday. Everyone worried about the weather that day morning, however, the weather had miraculously turned fine in the afternoon. The logo, which designed by Professor Pastre’s wife, Amy, makes the whole shed cute and shiny with recognition. Review went through fairly smoothly and easily. People [...]

Old experience, new function

One of the assignments was making a foundation. At that time, I was surprised it a lot, why we need to [...]

7 Eleven Woodshop

Steel Plate-Finally I finish my drilling hole misson! My name maybe changed to ARMstrong right now after doing 2-day metal work. So does dear Professor Pastre think.

A Closer Look

How exactly is the roof beam supported by the wall? How will an insulated [...]
