The annual California High School Woodworking Open House was held Thursday, May 16, at the CHS Industrial Arts/Agriculture Building, where projects students worked on throughout the school year were showcased.

"The kids were really eager this year and worked very hard," CHS teacher Dwight Fitzwater said.

Fitzwater said he was very impressed with the end results of many of the projects that students had obviously put a great deal of time and energy into.

Fitzwater said many of the completed woodworking projects have already been taken home by students. "Some give them to their mother, or another relative."

One student made a beautiful dining room table for his mother, while another made an entertainment center for his own bedroom.

Regardless of who ends up with the final pieces, the students have gained experience as well as something to be proud of.
