AP Physics students designed and built 15 stools for our new Makerspace, using the woodworking tools in our new Makerspace — because why buy furniture when you can make it?

Working in two groups of three, the six-person class set about to make a pair of prototype stools, researching to determine the best angles for the legs and how to use dowels, screws, and cross-center pieces to provide support.

With the prototypes completed, the class discussed the pros and cons of each design and developed a plan for construction of the remaining stools.

Currently in the sanding and finishing stage, the full complement of stools should be completed next month.
