GHS Students signage

Hi Joey,

After we saw the piece on Calvo’s exceptional work we thought you may want to check this out.

Next time you are in the GHS field house be sure to have a look at the new sign created and designed by the GHS Cabinet Design & Innovation class.

The original sign was damaged over the years due to various sporting events. The Cabinet Design class under the instruction of Teacher Tim Rose took over the assignment of replacing it. The pictures show some of the talented students who were involved in the project (Mike Munroe, Hannah Pastagal, John Whitmore)

The new sign was created in large part with the help of the new “Computer Numerical Control” or CNC machine which the Cabinet Design Class received through a grant from the Gloucester Education Foundation last year.

Students first designed and then programmed each of the letters using a CNC software program- The design was then fabricated on the CNC.  Each letter was attached to the newly designed backboard and finally finished with a bit of paint and a gloss polyurethane.

As you can see, the new sign is a great improvement of the old, and best of all, our very own GHS students crafted it!

The Cabinet Design and Innovation program is one of the longest running electives offered at GHS and is available to all GHS students. Each year the program enrolls 75 students for a full school year.

DONATIONS ACCEPTED!

Thanks Joey,

  1. Anyone know how I can get in touch with Tim Rose? I’d love to give these kids a tour of our shop in Boston so they can see what kind of career that have with those CNC and cabinet building skills.
