High School Woodshop Projects & Plans

You would think that for being so involved in woodworking I would have been the ace of my High School woodshop class. Nope, not me! I honestly didn’t pay much attention, and I don’t think I ever finished the project I started, a simple footstool.

What I do remember is seeing some pretty amazing High School woodshop projects, especially from the older students. I was especially impressed with all the sweet “Flying V” guitar bodies (not to mention the hair that went with them!)

I don’t know if schools still allow students to build skateboards and guitar bodies as woodshop projects, but I’m pretty sure that rifle stocks are out nowadays. Here’s a short list of some of the more popular High School woodshop projects I’ve seen over the years:

High School woodshop projects are a rite of passage for many young men and women. There’s not much that’s more therapeutic than the scent of piles of sawdust, and splinters in your fingers. Something about a handcrafted woodshop project makes folks want to keep them around for years. Even though I never finished my school project, I still have nearly everything I’ve ever built from wood.

Before choosing your High School woodshop project, be sure you consider the following:

  • Take the time to check out a bunch of plans.
  • See what will work for your skill level.
  • Make sure the necessary tool are on hand at the shop
  • Will you have enough time to finish?
  • Will you have enough material available, and can you afford to buy enough to finish your project?
  • Do you have a good, clear plan that details all the steps in an understandable way?

If you’re a High School woodshop teacher looking for ideas, or a student that just can’t decide what to build, there are a gazillion plans out there. Some are excellent, some are pretty poor, but one thing’s for sure – it can take a lot of time to locate the good ones.
