Thickness Planer
This machine is used to remove wood from the face grain until you get to the desired thickness.
Before you use this machine, it is important to check for impurities (paint, nails, rocks, etc.) in the wood.
Here are the steps for proper use of this machine: 1. Lay the board to be planed flat on the in feed table. 2. Next raise or lower the in feed table until the piece of wood is approximately 1/16” below the black clip on the front end of the planer. 3. Once the wood is in place, turn on the machine, stand to the side and lightly push the board towards the planer. The board will feed through on its own. 4. Once the board is through, flip it over. Raise the in feed table by turning the handle one half turn clockwise. 5. Repeat step four until you reach your desired thickness.
Don’t do any of the following: 1. Plane a board shorter than the space between the two black rollers on top of the thickness planer. 2. Plane any board with grains going side to side. 3. Look into a running thickness planer.

Band Saw

This tool is used to cut small curves on thicker pieces of wood.
Steps for proper use: 1. Adjust the blade guides so that they are one pinky above the wood. 2. Line up the wood so that it is parallel with the blade. 3. When making a sharp turn, slow down and exit the wood. Reset the parallel line and enter again 4. Before exiting the wood, slow down almost to a complete stop and cautiously remove your block. 5. Use the stop switch and the brake to stop the blade, then move the blade guards down so that no blade is exposed.
Do not do any of the following: 1. Place your hands directly in the path of the blade. 2. Exit the wood too quickly. 3. Cut too slowly (it will burn the wood). 4. Leave an exposed/running blade.

Industrial Design

...INDUSTRIAL DESIGN Product Design Industrial design is the use of both applied art and science to create and develop products that benefit both the user and manufacture. Industrial designers also known as Product designers prepare drawings and illustrations of products that assist in the decision making process. Once the decisions have been made they then prepare the models or prototypes to be demonstrated or tested. However products such as textiles and furniture have designers who specialise in their development. From original idea to final product there is a long and involved process even for something as simple as a small home appliance. A large amount of development time is required to design a product that is marketing success. Industrial designers Paul Taylor and Gerry Mussett designed the Axis kettle in 1993. Although Gerry Musset explains how Kambrook and The Key Centre for Design were involved in the concept development and models he left the project when it got to the production drawing stage. Kambrook then took over the kettle’s production. The Axis kettle is designed for all demographics with safe, convenient everyday use, easy to pick up, cordless electrical connection, at affordable prices. Constructed mostly of stainless steal or plastic materials. In time researchers observed that kettles were often over filled and that users would typically boil a kettle and walk away only to return and boil it again. To try and prevent this from happening......

...UNIT 1 INTRODUCTION CONCEPT The term ‘Industrial Relations’ comprises of two terms: ‘Industry’ and ‘Relations’. “Industry” refers to “any productive activity in which an individual (or a group of individuals) is (are) engaged”. By “relations” we mean “the relationships that exist within the industry between the employer and his workmen.” | | | | The term industrial relations explain the relationship between employees and management which stem directly or indirectly from union-employer relationship. Industrial relations are the relationships between employees and employers within the organizational settings. The field of industrial relations looks at the relationship between management and workers, particularly groups of workers represented by a union. Industrial relations are basically the interactions between employers, employees and the government, and the institutions and associations through which such interactions are mediated. The term industrial relations have a broad as well as a narrow outlook. Originally, industrial relations were broadly defined to include the relationships and interactions between employers and employees. From this perspective, industrial relations cover all aspects of the employment relationship, including human resource management, employee relations, and union-management (or labor) relations. Now its meaning has become more specific and restricted. Accordingly, industrial relations pertains to the study and practice of collective...

...primarily as a painter. Matisse is commonly regarded, along with Picasso and Marcel Duchamp, as one of the three artists who helped to define the revolutionary developments in the plastic arts in the opening decades of the 20th century, responsible for significant developments in painting and sculpture. Although he was initially labeled a Fauve (wild beast), by the 1920s he was increasingly hailed as an upholder of the classical tradition in French painting. His mastery of the expressive language of colour and drawing, displayed in a body of work spanning over a half-century, won him recognition as a leading figure in modern art. Henri Matisse uses Fauvism as a style began around 1900 and continued beyond 1910. The movement as such lasted only a few years, 1904–1908, and had three exhibitions. (Fauvism is the style of les Fauves (French for "the wild beasts"), a loose group of early twentieth-century Modern artists whose works emphasized painterly qualities and strong color over the representational or realistic values retained by Impressionisms.

With then use of polka dots and motifs in her paintings to make wonderful works of art. Watercolors are also a bonus when looking at an art display as it can be very vivid and in high school I enjoyed doing thing that's involved the same things that she does. Pastels and Oils were also fun to use and were some personal favorites that make art a fun thing to do that someone who may not be interested in doing will like it. In one of her paintings from her exhibit, Infinite Obsession, she uses a wide variety of colors and polka dots. There are many different things that one could decipher about this painting but it almost looks like it could be a city or galaxy. The colors that stand out the most are green, blue, and red. It features an abundance of varying sights and colors that will wow a person with it being fluid and precise as it doesn't look like someone just threw paint on a board but it looks like someone did the work intentionally with thought and reasoning behind it.

...As a lover of art I tend to find, beauty in everything some way. Whether it be a simple flower out in a field of brown grass, or a pattern that everyone thinks looks too busy. I didn’t realize how the ‘Beauty is all around you’ quote would fit me until I actually started to study it. No, I’m not art major because I can’t draw to save my life, but I found that studying it for a hobby is more relaxing than I thought it would have been. Living in New York City, I was able to go to an art museum every weekend. Look at the different paintings on the wall and feel a different emotion for each. If was funny how an 18x24 painting could make me feel so different about certain things. All a painting is and ever will be, and lines and different stroke one a white canvas if you break it down bit by bit. But together those line and strokes make something beautiful. When I moved from New York I thought I would have to give up that passion for a whole year. I, personally knew that I could do it but then I would be bored on my weekends, something I didn’t want to happen ever especially since I felt I was moving to the middle of nowhere. But I was mistaken when I found out that El Paso had an art museum. That was very shocking news to me, I know not everywhere has an art museum or a museum at all. Recently I was able to visit, I know it’s not good to compare two things together all the time, of course the El Paso art museum isn’t, The Metropolitan Museum of Art or the Whitney Museum of......

...INTRODUCTION In all of human history, art has mirrored life in the community, society, and the world in all its colors, lines, shapes, and forms. The same has been true in the last two centuries, with world events and global trends being reflected in the art movements. The decades from 1900 to the present have seen the human race living in an ever shrinking planet. The 20th century saw a boom in the interchange of ideas, beliefs, values, and lifestyles that continues to bring the citizens of the world closer together. Technological breakthroughs From the Industrial Revolution of the late 1800s, the world zoomed into the Electronic. Age in the mid-1900s, then into the present Cyberspace Age. In just over 100 years, humans went from hand-cranked telephones to hands-free mobile phones, from the first automobiles to inter-planetary space vehicles, from local radio broadcasting to international news coverage via satellite, from vaccinations against polio and smallpox to laser surgery. Social, political, and environmental changes There has been migration across the globe, allowing different cultures, languages, skills, and even physical characteristics of different races to intermingle like never before. The 20th century also suffered through two World Wars, and several regional wars in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. There was the Great Depression of the 1930s, and the Asian economic crisis of the 1990s. Considered the modern-day plague, AIDS has......

19th Century Art Education, Industrial Art or Fine Art?

...19th Century Art Education, Industrial Art or Fine Art? Varick Taylor East Carolina University MAED Art 6800 History and Philosophy of Art Education Abstract As an art educator in the today’s public school system, I feel that it is my responsibility to introduce and allow my students to explore the arts from the past and the present. I want them to learn a variety of art making techniques and art history. I also want to prepare them for future by giving them exposure to possible career choices that utilizes the arts. Therefore I feel it is important that my art classes allow students to be exposed to both the fine arts and design fields of the 21st century. 21st century technology like 19th century industrialization has influenced art education methods. The use of technology in classes is increasing each year. We are using design software to create both designs and fine art assignments on computers. In the 19th century, industrialization was one of the most important reasons why art became a part of public school education. Government leaders and the industry wanted America to able to compete with the superior European imports. As a result they felt that requiring drawing as a subject in public schools would help the U.S. in competing with Europe and balance trade. Knowing how much they wanted America to produce better products, I was puzzled when the Massacusetts did not model its art education after the France, whom was considered the best in producing superior......

...and the successes.6 The township and village enterprises in china—publicly owned at the local level—were central to China’s success in the 80s and early 90s. The individual responsibility system—which went far short of privatization of land—was responsible for the enormous increase in agriculture productivity. It is hard to conceive of Korea or Taiwan having become the industrial players of today without their having undertaken active industrial policies. All of the countries in East Asia had high savings rates, and it is at least plausible that the government policies designed to stimulate savings actually did what they were intended to do. While firms in the rest of the world complain about a shortage of capital, the governments of East Asia provided capital to those firms that were proving their mettle by exporting, especially in technology sectors where there were likely spillovers to the rest of the economy. To be sure, all of this could have been an accident; it is even possible that as some critics of these policies claim, the East Asian countries might have grown even faster in the absence of industrial policies. It is possible—but there is no reason to believe that that is the case, and the weight of the evidence points in the other directions. If the success of East Asia suggests the desirability of a larger role for government in successful development than was traditionally emphasized in the Washington consensus policies, the failures in Sub-Saharan Africa and......

...One of the most thrilling opportunities was seeing the Renaissance fair in action. The Renaissance was a cultural movement that spanned from the 14th century to the 17th. It began in Florence in the Late Middle Ages and later on spread to Europe. The term Renaissance is used loosely to refer to a historical era in which there was a development of linear perspective within the art of painting, and a increasing spread of educational reform. This cultural movement was the bridge between the modern era and the Middle Ages. It was seen as an intellectual pursuit in which social and political upheaval arose. This period is best known for its artistic developments from renowned artist such as Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci. Visiting the Faire was such a rewarding and wonderful experience because not only was I able to gain so much information about the period, I was able to learn it through having fun and enjoying myself. There were Men in tights, knights on horses, beautiful and entertaining shows, wonderful food, jousting, and very fun activities. I’d seen various movies such as Lord of the Rings and Dragonheart and ever since I was a kid I’ve always been in love with that period. The various fables of knights and tales of sword fighting always intrigued me. The fact that I was able to witness it first hand was such a fulfilling and wonderful experience! I saw the wardrobe of knights, peasants, and noblemen alike. I was able to see blacksmiths at work and gun, queens, and......

The Art

...According to the article Art, the definition of art is “the concept that any form of creativity should be valued for its own merits alone, rather than measured against some fixed set of criteria that is laid down by the art establishment.” The second article the definition of Art “expresses human imagination, not least when it engages with humanity's destiny.” An example of painting "The Mona Lisa" by Leonardo da Vinci the painting is an Image of a lady smiling because she is pregnant according to the article The Art Newspaper. This painting goes with the second definition of art because it expresses how Mona Lisa feels about being pregnant. An example of sculpture is by Auguste Rodin “The Thinker Statue” the purpose of The Thinker statue was to represent the artist as himself at the top of the door reflecting, The Thinker is a man in sober meditation battling with a powerful internal struggle. The sculpture is a man with a pose with hand to the chin, right elbow to the left knee, and crouching position.

Industrial Relations

...Factors Affecting Industrial Relations Proper industrial relations help you to run your company in an efficient manner. You can maintain morale among your employees with the right kind of industrial relations. Industrial relations are more of an art than a science, balancing a number of factors to get the right relationship between capital and labor. Knowing the factors affecting industrial relations will help you to properly calibrate this relationship. 1. Communication * Communication acts as a key factor in industrial relations. Two-way communication between labor and capital allows workers to stay fully informed of workplace expectations as well as changes that affect them. Management becomes aware of problems as they arise, rather than learning about things after they have reached the point of crisis. They can thus address issues in a timely fashion and keep rumor, innuendo and misinformation to a minimum. 1. Unions * Unions can affect industrial relations in a number of complex ways. When a union comes to a workplace, individuals no longer bargain on their own. Rather, they are represented collectively by a third party. This can make employees feel like they have more of a voice. It can also provide a means to collectively arbitrate labor disputes. Employees also have a means to register discontent with parts of their job through the grievance procedure. Unions can also complicate matters by bringing the concerns of a third party--i.e. the......
