They would use a range of communication skills to document design ideas and proposals in order to produce and evaluate systems to meet design criteria.

Assembling and fitting a sliding drawer, eg paper towel dispenser
Safe use and handling of portable power tools such as the router and biscuit cutter.
Timber harvesting and conversion, environmental impacts and future developments.
Use jigs and assembly aids to improve speed and accuracy of fabrication.
Further techniques and applications of woodturning between centres.
Interpretation and production of working drawings/models and an appreciation of ergonomics and aesthetics in design.
