DURING term four 12 girls from Year 5/ 6 have been making jewellery boxes with Mr Crowley.
We started with learning about safety rules for when we use machinery and sharp tools. We then learnt how to hammer nails into wood and to use glue to stick our pieces of wood together.
The wood for the sides of the jewellery box was joined together like a jigsaw puzzle with the dovetail joins and glue.
We sanded the sides to get rid of the leftover wood to make the corners smooth and flat.
We used the belt sander to sand the wood for the base so that it fitted properly.
Next week we will be putting felt in and then finish off with making a lid with a fancy handle. After varnishing our jewellery box we will be taking it home.
Our class has had a fun time making our jewellery boxes and trucks. — By Stephanie and Lilly
