Carpentry Sawing Activity to be used at a table.
The children are given a presentation on how to use the saw. Once the presentation has been given the children can then mark, saw and sand a piece of soft wood. The activity comes with the table top work tray, which measures approximately 20cm deep x 30cm wide and has a front and back lip to prevent slipping on the table and to contain the activity, a saw, a sawing block for stability which allows for a right or left handed child to use the saw, a pencil to mark the wood, a piece of folded sandpaper with spares and a piece of soft wood (one of many). This activity is one of 4 and is ideally used to introduce a skill prior to using the Carpentry bench.
