Carpentry

  •  

    The Carpentry Program is designed to prepare students to be employable at entry level jobs in house and mill carpentry. In addition to carpentry skills, students learn blueprint reading, elementary drafting and architectural design, building materials identification and building codes. Upon completion of safety training and instruction in the proper use of hand tools, students complete a wide variety of projects such as step stools, tool boxes, night tables and learn various types of cabinet working, countertop and plastic lamination. Upperclassmen work on new house construction and building projects for municipalities and non-profit organizations. Integration of academic skills into the program prepares students for a wide range of education and work opportunities. Students learn real-world applications of math, reading, writing, science and social studies, giving them the problem-solving skills they need for successful careers. Construction projects undertaken by the shop include the Latham School Skill Center and various renovations of town buildings.
