Students turn old bleachers into tables

Wednesday, November 2, 2016
Cassville High School (CHS) industrial arts woodworking II students recently repurposed old bleachers from the middle school gym into beautiful, new table-tops that will be used by the wood-working students. Previously, the shop tables were painted and would easily scratch when students were working on projects or moving items across the table. The new table-tops, however, will not scratch. In addition to a nice surface to work, the project gave students an opportunity to recycle and repurpose material from campus, and see the fruit of their efforts and end result of the before and after process. The students were guided through the project by Marcus Reynolds, industrial arts instructor at CHS.
