My Billy Cart Plan

At school we are making the design of our Billy Cart because we have to be well prepared when its time for us to make it. We will start making our Billy Cart on Thursday, January 17 2007. We are drawing the Billy Cart based on the scale that we choose.    

 

 

 

Making the Billy Cart


Today January 17, 2008 the grade 5 started to make the Billy Cart. Some of our parents and some carpenters came to our school to help us make our Billy Cart. We were very excited and a bit dissapointed because we can't cut the wood. Actually we are hoping that we could do everything to make our Billy Cart.


Today Andrew's and Ristia's Billy Cart has been made. First the two wheels in the front were straight and the wheels in the back were 360 degree, but it doesn't  work well. So we change the 360 degree to be in the front and the straight will be in the back and its still doesn't work. Then we plan to change all the wheel with the straight one and it works really well. One of the parent try to ride on it.

Today I learned how to screw the wheel to the wood. We used the big screw and some nuts to put the wheel in the wood.

 

Karyawisata Menuju Bengkel Kayu

Tadi pagi kira-kira pukul 10.15, kelas 5 berangkat dari sekolah menuju ke bengkel kayu untuk belajar bagaimana caranya untuk memotong kayu dengan baik, mengukur tebal dan panjangnya kayu, mengamplas kayu, dan banyak lagi.


Pertama kali kayunya kasar dan bentuknya miring-miring. Lalu kita menyerutnya dengan mesin serut untuk membuang kulit kayu yang kasar. Setelah di serut kayu menjadi warna ungu dan tidak terlalu kasar. Kayu menjadi warna ungu karena itu adalah hatinya kayu, setiap kayu pasti mempunyai hati." Hatinya kayu adalah tipe kayu yang bagus!" kata tukang kayu yang bekerja di bengkel kayu itu. Setelah itu kami mengamplas kayunya lagi agar bisa menjadi lebih lembut. Habis itu kami mengukur kayu yang akan kami potong dengan meteran, lalu kami menandainya dengan kulusut, dan kami potong dengan gergaji manual.

Sesudah itu kami memotong kayu dengan model yang
diinginkan. Lalu diwarnai. Jadi deh!
