Carpentry: a career for those that enjoy work for the body just as much as work for the brain! Recently students are working on custom window framing and mitering molding to finish the mock house they constructed in class. The mock house allows them to work individually as well as in teams to complete carpentry tasks and produce completed projects.
Students in carpentry learn a swath of skills that will provide them with the foundations needed for a career in anything from rough carpentry to owning their own business as a general contractor or builder. These skills include blueprint reading, laying out and building footers and foundations, wall and roof framing, interior finishing techniques including hanging and finishing drywall, painting, hanging and finishing trim, flooring and tile, as siding and exterior finish and trim skills.
Students interested in pursuing higher education after they graduate will be happy to know that they can earn college credits while attending the Carpentry program at SUN Tech! Talk to your guidance counselor to schedule a tour of Carpentry or any of our other exciting programs! To see more pictures of the Carpentry program, check out our Carpentry Album on Facebook.
