While English classes finish their novels and science students are filling out their study guides, woods is trying not to lose a finger. Woods students are currently focusing on finishing their final projects with the help of teacher John Stewart, who has been teaching at CMR for 13 years.

“[For the final, students] build projects and take a short multiple choice test on safety and careers,” he said.

There is a large variety of projects being completed in the workshop.

Some projects are “a lot of furniture, outdoor furniture, entertainment centers, bed frames, [and] fishing nets,” Stewart said.

Junior Lorin Tingey is a student in Stewart’s Woods 3-4 class during 7th period. She took the Intro to Woods class freshman year and continued her junior year.

“[I’m building] a table for my cabin,” she said. “It has a checkerboard in the middle.”

Tingey has been working on this project roughly three months and said she has enjoyed the experience.

“I like building things, [and] it’s just fun. It’s different from other classes.””

“Mr. Stewart is really cool,” she said. “I like building things, [and] it’s just fun. It’s different from other classes.”

Tingey is not worried for the final and claims it’s “just cleaning the workroom.”
