Principal's Message

Hello Klahowya students and families,

Weather forecasts indicate an accumulation of about 3" of snow by tomorrow morning in the Seabeck area.  This has caused us to move our Destination Imagination Tournament to Central Kitsap High School.  The event will start at 10:00 a.m.  If additional changes are made to this event, we will post them on the Klahowya website.  Due to the incoming weather, all other sports practies and activities are cancelled on Saturday, March 4, 2023

Please stay safe and keep warm,

Scott McDaniel

Look what's happening in KSS Shop Class

I found a dresser plan online when I started the project and so I based my design off of that but there were multiple parts I didn’t like so I made edits and made it work for me! Some of the edits included making it two compartments where the lid lifts up, as well as changing the material to plywood and altering how each of the drawers were made up!

In total I spent around 2 months working on my dresser in class. For materials I wanted something on the less expensive side and I had previously made a nightstand out of plywood as well so I figured I would make the two match and chose plywood. I used quite a bit of tools but a few are a pokey hole jig, a table saw, hand held planer, drills and sanders!

I’m hoping to be able to make a nice set of furniture including the nightstand, the dresser and a desk, so I’m 2/3 of the way there. I’m planning on using them to help furnish my future college apartment and later possibly a house!  Loren S. (Senior)

“I have enjoyed my time with Loren for the last three years in the shop. Loren is a great craftsman and her craftsmanship is second to none. Loren has done a great job working on her skills, projects and work ethic. I'm looking forward to seeing what the next project will be. ”Jon Lindberg KSS Shop Teacher
