Sample flats, white board, markers.
What object/product shall the student end up with?
A cut list for a standard 4×8 flat.
Process, notes, outline, descriptions, script for teacher, questions that will encourage critical thinking and discovery:
???Why do we need a cut list???
Show sample flat so that students know what we are talking about.
Draw the flat on the board. Start with basic rectangle, then add lines to represent 1×3 lumber.
?? Ask for names of; top rail, bottom rail, toggle, stiles.
Create a cut list for what's on the board at this moment.
All 1×3: 2 @ 4', 2 @ 7'7", 1 @ 3'7"
?? Ask for missing parts.
Cover, 4×8 ply
Corner blocks, 9" square cut into triangles.
?? Corner block placements?? soft covered flats? hard w/ 1/8th & 1/4" covers.
Keystones, 2"x9" (use a keystone from a bridge to bring about this answer.)
If time allows, briefly intro a diagonal brace for soft covered flats.
How will the student be evaluated?
Actually creating cut lists &/or building flats for future productions.
Relate this to future classes via ?
We will be using these skills to create cut lists for flats with doors and windows
