Student Projects – Standard Section Sizes in Hardwoods and Softwoods for MTW and Construction Studies.
- We have identified cross-sectional sizes, which can be efficiently and cost-effectively produced from standard raw lumber sizes.
- These sizes form the backbone of most of the cross-sectional sizes used by students in their MTW and Construction Studies Projects.
- We process and have these sizes in-stock.
- The student or teacher orders this material either in its stock-length or cut to the required lengths.
Should the student require sizes other than those on the standard list he/she can either cut or plane down a standard stock size or bond two or several pieces together to make a larger section size or laminate (e.g. a table top)
- Our selected range of processed timbers include, Mahogany (Utile or Sepele), Beech, Teak (Iroko), Oak, Red Deal and Southern Yellow Pine.
- Student produces initial design/concept of project.
- After consultation with his/her teacher, student goes on to refine design.
- Mindful of the standard cross sectional sizes available, the student then produces detailed working drawings.( Plan, Elevation, End View)
- From the Working Drawings the student produces a cutting list on standardised format.
- Larger components can be produced by laminating components from the standard list e.g. 70 X 20 and 70 X 20 can be laminated together to make a 135 X 18 (finished dimensions). Smaller components can be produced by simply cutting or planeing down to the desired sizes.
