In first year, pupils have one main practical project which gives pupils experience of measuring and marking out in millimetres (mm), using a range of tools and machines to remove waste wood and applying a finish to their model for aesthetics reasons and also to protect their model from water and dust etc.

The worksheet shown below is issued to pupils to give them the sizes they need to mark out onto their length of wood. The class teacher will demonstrate the correct use of tools for marking out.
