Project: Table Project - Evaluation

Evaluation

  • Accuracy: within 1/16" for each major dimension (height, length, width)
  • Joinery: well fitting, strong, and smooth. Filled well with filler if there are cracks or openings.
  • Sanding and finish: your project should be sanded to 150 grit, and then carefully coated with several layers of water-based polyeurathane varnish. Hand sand with 220 grit sandpaper between the last few varnish layers.
  • The challenge and complexity of your project with be taken into account during evaluation.

Challenge and Complexity

I will be looking at the overall challenge and complexity of your project, and adding or removing marks according to the difficulty of the work you do. Each half-point will be applied to your other three categories, from lowest to highest.

  • Table size
    • 12 x 12" or 12 x 15" = +0
    • 20" diameter or 20 x 30" = +0.5
  • Table edge treatment
    • Plain = -0.5
    • Chamfered, rounded over, ogee = +0
    • Lifted = +0.5
    • Bullnose = +0.5
  • Table legs
    • Plain = -0.5
    • Tapered = +0
  • Skirting joinery
    • Biscuit joints = +0
    • Mortise and tenon = +1.0
  • Table attachment
    • Dowels = -0.5
    • Table clips = +0.5
  • Skirting
    • Normal = +0
    • Additional shelf = +1.0
    • Additional drawer = +1.0

Example

Table size = +0 (12 x 15")

Edge treatment= - 0.5 (none)

Table legs = +0 (tapered)

Skirting joinery = +0 (biscuit joint, unseen in picture) 

Table attachments = +0.5 (table clips, unseen)

Skirting = +1.0 (additional shelf)

 

Total Mark Adjustment = +1.0 (two boosts of +0.5 to two categories)

Skills: Joinery

We look at many different ways to join wood in PDT.

We look at the basics, so that we are familiar with their strengths and weaknesses. However, students are not normally allowed to use these joints in PDT - they are simply not challenging enough for small scale projects.

  • butt joints [2]
  • nail joints [3]
  • screw joints [4]

We also look at a some more challenging joinery. In order of complexity, they are:

  • mitre joints [5]
  • rabbet joints [6]
  • biscuit joints [7]
  • dowel joints [8]
  • finger joints [9]
  • dovetail joints [10]

The number behind each joint would be a typical mark out of ten for the difficulty of each type of joinery.
