Students at John Stark Regional High School have been finishing up their independent final projects in advanced woodworking, a class where they learn different ways to join wood together using a variety of hand and power tools.

“As the name implies,” commented teacher JSRHS Tech Ed teacher Joab Owen, “these are complicated pieces of work. One of the students, senior Sebastian Winsor, completed six pages of calculations to get the correct numbers to craft an exact replica of a 737 jet out of pine to scale. He used power tools to cut the original piece of wood to the correct 3 3/16” diameter he needed and finished the rest of the project using a spoke shave to make the rounded edges of the fuselage and then sandpaper to finish,” said Mr. Owen.

Sebastian Winsor has taken several of Mr. Owen’s classes while at John Stark including carpentry, small engine repair and maintenance, and now advanced woodworking manufacturing. He is a member of the JSRHS Gamers Club and Esports Team and plans to attend Nashua Community College to study Aviation Technology.

Other projects created in this advanced woodworking class include wooden spoons and other cooking utensils by Tommy Quinn, a cherry glide bait by Dusty Hallee (who is also on the school’s Bass Fishing team), and a live river table made with maple and glass by Will Connor.
