Summer Intern Andrea Ayala working on the vertical panel saw
We are proud to have intern Andrea Ayala working with us this summer. An incoming senior at Mission High School, Andrea came to our shop as a result of a partnership between San Francisco Unified School District and Jewish Vocational Services. Andrea plans to become an architect, but wants hands-on experience in the trades. In addition to her Seidman Woodworks internship, she's also attending an engineering camp at Skyline College this summer.
In the picture above, Andrea is cutting parts for a dollhouse she designed using CAD software. She taught herself CAD on our shop computers in order to accomplish the drawings. She prepared a full cutlist, cut the parts, assembled the house, sprayed it in our paint booth and is currently in the process of building all manner of furniture for the house.
It's not only Andrea who is gaining valuable experience. All of us at Seidman Woodworks are enjoying introducing Andrea to our trade.
