Bespoke Chopping Boards from Year 9 D&T

 Year 9 D&T students took on the challenge of producing a bespoke laminated cutting board with remarkable enthusiasm, combining pine, maple and merbau wood with great creativity and design flair to create unique pieces.

After developing their designs on computer applications, students learnt how to laminate wood, then plane, file and sand their jobs. Many of the projects were skillfully detailed by the boys using a hand router. 

Students had the opportunity to use our laser cutter to engrave their projects with a custom graphic design of their choice. The beautiful and functional pieces the boys took home will be a great addition to the kitchen, and a conversation piece for their families for years to come.
