Students in the wood shop classes at Long Beach High School are using their handy skills for great purposes, as they construct Adirondack chairs that will be donated to veterans. They are making 12 chairs, four of which will go to the Northport Veterans Affairs Medical Center. The remaining eight will be placed in areas around the high school.
The project entails measuring, cutting, sanding, assembling, painting and more, all of which are skills that the classes cover. Students have been preparing the braces, seat slats and supports and look forward to unveiling the finished products. Earlier this school year, they made cutting boards, Nok hockey boards and speakers, among other items.
