Two wood technology students not only designed, but built the impressive furniture in the new Kansas Career and Technical Education Center offices inside the Kansas Technology Center.
Students Mark Welle and Sam Galliart were challenged by Assistant Professor Doug Hague to take on the task of building the furniture.
“I thought it could be a nice challenge for our students to see if they’d be willing to design and build the furniture needed for the office,” said Hague, assistant professor in the Wood Technology Department.
Save for a couple of weeks off for various reasons, Galliart and Welle worked all summer to create the new furniture that is
now inside the KCCTE offices.
“Our instructors told us a couple of things to think about and watch for, but for the most part, it was just us,” Galliart said. “That’s what made it such a fun and exciting challenge.”
