Process Journal <Cutting Ice
Flow& Sanding Penguin and Ice
Flow & Filing>
Oct. 27th. 2010
Today I had double period of DT. Which means that I can
work a lot and I did. I think today is the most day that
I made lots of effort. I finished cutting the “Ice Flow”
and finished sanding all the sharp edges. I made the ice
flow as the shape of ice. The shape is kind of wavy.
Today Mr. Anderson showed us how to use “Gig Saw” Ye Chan
needed to use Gig saw to cut the wavy shape. Gig saw’s
blade goes as up and down.
When I finished cutting the “Ice Flow”, I asked Mr.
Anderson “Can I use Disc- Sander to sand?” then he said
yes. I wore goggle to make sure that I am safe now. First,
I turned on the Disc-sander and then I put my project on
the LEFT side. If you put any kind of object on right
side, then your project might pop out! Make sure that
your project is on left side. Anyways, first, I was a bit
afraid that I might ruin the project. However, I sand
After I finished sanding and cutting, now I need to do
some filing some part that I couldn’t sand by using Disc-
sander. I used half-round file and round file to file my
project. Some parts are hard to file. When I was filing,
I thought some parts were can file by using Disc-sander.
I went to Disc- sander 3 times to sand it.
I put the “Penguin” and “Ice Flow” together. Actually, it
was great. However, Mr. Anderson suggested me that what
if I make ices on the “Ice Flow”, because when I put ices
on the “Ice Flow”, it makes more realistic. Which means
that, next class I will make some ices and has wheels and
The learner profile for today was communication, because
I communicated with Mr. Anderson about how I would make
project better. Also I communicated with Sally. She gave
me some suggestion about the shape of ice.
