Kiowa County High School Shop Projects

Listing #3866   Listed on: 04/30/2012

Company Name: USD 422 Kiowa County

Contact Name:   Peter Kern
Student Projects from Kiowa County High School (formerly Greensburg High School)
Most of the pictures are from an open house display from today. We took a number of project to the Western Kansas Technology Fair last weekend and did pretty well. We won the best Freshman Project, best Sophomore Project, best Multi-pupil project, and Most Oustanding Program. This is the first time we have been to the fair since the tornado in 2007. We have had some pretty nice stuff the last few years, but it just hasn't been done in time for the fair. The multi-pupil project that won was a five piece living room set my first hour class of 5 kids built for our new Senior center in 2 months. We also had a multi-pupil entry for the cabinets we build for the shop the first 5 weeks of the year after we had gone through safety. Last summer we finished an addition that doubled the size of the woodshop and has a nice area for a future metal shop, but right now it is storage. If anyone saw the pictures I posted a few years ago of the Greensburg shop, you know how much we needed the addition. I will update our shop gallery stuff soon. It has been a long road, but we are finally back and it is awesome.

Great stuff. Staff and students should be bustin' their buttons with pride. Skill's they will have for a lifetime whether they become woodworking pros or not.

Nice stuff. I'm just curious how you get away with having a Sawstop and a Powermatic in the same school shop? What's going to happen if one of your kids gets hurt on the PM?


Posted By: Peter Kern     [05/07/2012]
In Kansas there is no regulation that says you have to have a SawStop yet. You may be surprised at the number of shops without a Sawstop or running one of two like us. We got the Sawstop to replace our older Powermatic that had been pulled out and in use since the tornado. The newer Powermatic was donated by WMH Toolgroup after the tornado, so it is basically brand new. After having the Sawstop for a year and realizing the weight lifted off my shoulders with students running it, I will be asking to replace the Powermatic for next year. It is pretty cheap when you figure the cost of a finger. Thanks for the comments.

Really nice work and an impressive shop. Surprised to see the young lady working in the shop without having her long hair restrained though. After 30 years plus in industry and shop, I have seen a couple of ugly things happen with long hair and loose clothing.

Excellent quality! Congratulations to all participants on jobs well done!

Nice work to all involved. Being from Kansas I would have to say that the Powercat table is awesome, actually they all are. Good job and keep up the excellent work. Go State!!!!

FORUM GUIDELINES: Please review the guidelines below before posting at WOODWEB's Interactive Message Boards (return to top)

  • WOODWEB is a professional industrial woodworking site. Hobbyist and homeowner woodworking questions are inappropriate.
  • Messages should be kept reasonably short and on topic, relating to the focus of the forum. Responses should relate to the original question.
  • A valid email return address must be included with each message.
  • Advertising is inappropriate. The only exceptions are the Classified Ads Exchange, Machinery Exchange, Lumber Exchange, and Job Opportunities and Services Exchange. When posting listings in these areas, review the posting instructions carefully.
  • Subject lines may be edited for length and clarity.
  • "Cross posting" is not permitted. Choose the best forum for your question, and post your question at one forum only.
  • Messages requesting private responses will be removed - Forums are designed to provide information and assistance for all of our visitors. Private response requests are appropriate at WOODWEB's Exchanges and Job Opportunities and Services.
  • Messages that accuse businesses or individuals of alleged negative actions or behavior are inappropriate since WOODWEB is unable to verify or substantiate the claims.
  • Posts with the intent of soliciting answers to surveys are not appropriate. Contact WOODWEB for more information on initiating a survey.
  • Excessive forum participation by an individual upsets the balance of a healthy forum atmosphere. Individuals who excessively post responses containing marginal content will be considered repeat forum abusers.
  • Responses that initiate or support inappropriate and off-topic discussion of general politics detract from the professional woodworking focus of WOODWEB, and will be removed.
  • Participants are encouraged to use their real name when posting. Intentionally using another persons name is prohibited, and posts of this nature will be removed at WOODWEB's discretion.
  • Comments, questions, or criticisms regarding Forum policies should be directed to WOODWEB's Systems Administrator
    (return to top).

    Carefully review your message before clicking on the "Send Message" button - you will not be able to revise the message once it has been sent.

    You will be notified of responses to the message(s) you posted via email. Be sure to enter your email address correctly.

    WOODWEB's forums are a highly regarded resource for professional woodworkers. Messages and responses that are crafted in a professional and civil manner strengthen this resource. Messages that do not reflect a professional tone reduce the value of our forums.

    Messages are inappropriate when their content: is deemed libelous in nature or is based on rumor, fails to meet basic standards of decorum, contains blatant advertising or inappropriate emphasis on self promotion (return to top).

    Libel:   Posts which defame an individual or organization, or employ a tone which can be viewed as malicious in nature. Words, pictures, or cartoons which expose a person or organization to public hatred, shame, disgrace, or ridicule, or induce an ill opinion of a person or organization, are libelous.

    Improper Decorum:   Posts which are profane, inciting, disrespectful or uncivil in tone, or maliciously worded. This also includes the venting of unsubstantiated opinions. Such messages do little to illuminate a given topic, and often have the opposite effect. Constructive criticism is acceptable (return to top).

    Advertising:   The purpose of WOODWEB Forums is to provide answers, not an advertising venue. Companies participating in a Forum discussion should provide specific answers to posted questions. WOODWEB suggests that businesses include an appropriately crafted signature in order to identify their company. A well meaning post that seems to be on-topic but contains a product reference may do your business more harm than good in the Forum environment. Forum users may perceive your references to specific products as unsolicited advertising (spam) and consciously avoid your web site or services. A well-crafted signature is an appropriate way to advertise your services that will not offend potential customers. Signatures should be limited to 4-6 lines, and may contain information that identifies the type of business you're in, your URL and email address (return to top).

    Repeated Forum Abuse: Forum participants who repeatedly fail to follow WOODWEB's Forum Guidelines may encounter difficulty when attempting to post messages.

    There are often situations when the original message asks for opinions: "What is the best widget for my type of shop?". To a certain extent, the person posting the message is responsible for including specific questions within the message. An open ended question (like the one above) invites responses that may read as sales pitches. WOODWEB suggests that companies responding to such a question provide detailed and substantive replies rather than responses that read as a one-sided product promotion. It has been WOODWEB's experience that substantive responses are held in higher regard by our readers (return to top).

    The staff of WOODWEB assume no responsibility for the accuracy, content, or outcome of any posting transmitted at WOODWEB's Message Boards. Participants should undertake the use of machinery, materials and methods discussed at WOODWEB's Message Boards after considerate evaluation, and at their own risk. WOODWEB reserves the right to delete any messages it deems inappropriate. (return to top)
