Wautoma Furniture Making & Design Class donating to Blue Ribbon Kid’s Day
Blue Ribbon Kid’s Day Committee members recently met with the Wautoma High School students enrolled in Furniture Making & Design to preview the sliding barn doors they constructed. The students built the doors to be sold at an auction to benefit Blue Ribbon Kid’s Day.
Sliding barn doors are a decorative piece popular with homeowners, with each door sliding on hardware mounted above a standard door frame for a unique and decorative accent.
The photo shows three of the four sliding barn doors created by the high school students. In order to create their barn doors, students researched the design and construction, determined the materials to be used in construction, created a miniature/model door and completed the final product in five weeks.
Each door is different in looks and materials, with the first door (left) a weathered barn door made from old boards that have seen some outdoor weathering. The second door (center) is made out of pallet boards, while the third (right) is a manufactured door made of standard pine boards.
