Three View Drawing for Sanding Block



All students must learn how to read and create a simple set of shop drawings before they begin on construction. This lesson is a single class period that will cover all three views (top view, end view, and side/elevation view). This drawing will test students skill in measuring, accuracy, and the ability to follow simple instruction.

After the drawing, I have my students make the sanding block to help with detailing their work. That will be a separate lesson involving hand tools and a drill press, plus more measuring and layout.
