Since Christmas our 2nd Yrs have been designing their own hand crafted lamps. Students were asked to bring in an old piece of firewood which we transformed on the lathe into a fully functional lamp. Each student was required to input their own unique design for both the lamp and the base piece. Some used wood-burning, others used veneers in the form of parquetry to decorate their project.

Miguel Marzo from Spain spent 6 weeks with us in Scoil Pol, he had never done Woodwork before and eventhough he had very little English he completed this decorative piece of Parquetry. It was finished to a very high standard and he picked up new Woodwork skills very quickly to complete it within the short time he spent with us.

News: Second Year Wooden Stools

21/05/2015

As another year comes to a close for these students there are more fabulous pieces created in the Woodwork room in Scoil Pol. The latest project was a hand-crafted stool where the 2nd years got to choose the designs on the legs and whether they wanted the top in timber or upholestry.
We are very grateful to the Hayes family of Ballylanders who supplied us with the foam for the seats of our stools.

Second Year Toy Trains

13/12/2014

For the past 6 weeks 2nd years have been working on a Toy Train made from softwood but stained to look like more expensive hardwoods. They engaged in activities where they used the lathe to turn the wheels, cylinder and chimney, the mortiser to make the windows & used a biscuit and dowel joint to assemble it together.

5th & 6th yr Students visit Construction Site
September 26th
Fifth & Sixth Year students went to Croagh, Co. Limerick last Friday Sept 26th to visit an active building site. Students were paired up and given twelve activities related to various building components and strategies to investigate at the site.
Students were required to measure and record the various building materials being used in modern day construction. Students were also given the opportunity to complete interior designs for various rooms within the building, e.g. Where to position a TV, couch and coffee table in the living room. The builder explained to the whole class group how to mark out and cut a common rafter that would be used as part of the roof for this structure.
