Project Criteria
WoodsLevels 2, 3, 4 & 5Mr. Gross
Why do you need criteria for your project?
Criteria for a project are set so that you may reach your maximum potential as awoodworking student. By setting these standards you are encouraged to stretch your  boundaries into areas that you are not comfortable in. Without such encouragement youwould most likely build a project that is similar to what you have done in the past thus notchallenging yourself and not growing as a woodworker.By trying new methods and working with new materials and processes you will become more confident in your woodworking skills and feel better about attempting newconcept you once thought unattainable.Without setting goals (criteria) that stretch your boundaries you would probably settlefor “stuff” and things that are “good enough”. That is not what we are about here at PLHS.Striving to be better is our ultimate goal. Never settle for what you are. Reach for what youcan be.
