**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 =

**÷ 144 =**__432__**.**__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.**

ReplyDeleteHi Kezzie,

ReplyDeleteJust pick a piece of furniture in your home. Measure the parts, then add up the board feet of wood that it would take to make it.

The formula is on the website.
