### Blizzard Bag #1

BLIZZARD BAG ASSIGNMENT #1
WOOD TECHNOLOGY I
MR. LOONAM

Choose a piece of furniture in your house that you would like to build someday.
Examples would be:
End table
Bedside table
Coffee table / game table
Desk
Cabinet
Shelving
Pet furniture

Using a ruler or tape measure, make a working drawing of the project.
A working drawing will show the front view, top view, and the right side view of the item.

Once drawn, add the measurements to the drawing.  Make sure to include ALL components!  Top, legs, apron, whatever your piece has.  Make a bill of materials as you write down the measurements.

NOW, figure how many BOARD FEET of wood you have in the project.  Using the following formula:
T  x  W  x  L = ____   ÷ 144  =  ____ board feet.
Where T is thickness,      W is width,     and L is the length in inches.
(any wood thickness less than 1" is considered 1")

EXAMPLE:   A table top is 3/4" thick 18" wide and 24" long.

1 x 18 x 24 = 432    ÷  144  =    3 bd. ft.

PLEASE, bring in your completed drawing the day after the snow day.  It must be brought in to class to receive credit for this assignment!  Failure to do so, will result in a '0' in the grade book.
