Woodwork teacher Michael Bullingham is enjoying passing on his skills.
“The chopping board was the first project I made,” said Michael, who has sourced the wood for the boards for IGS students from houses which had been demolished. “There were nails in some of the boards. I quite like the rustic look.”
Each student’s board is unique; designed, cut, glued, drilled, sawn, sanded, then painted with food-safe oil.
“I just like being able to use the tools, and creating something useful,” said Nik of Year 7.
Other student-selected projects include a cat cave and tree, a lap steel guitar and a stool.
Woodwork club is one of more than 100 clubs on offer at IGS for students from Years 1 to 12.
