  1. Name two timber defects that are used to an advantage in woodwork.


    • Sketch a raised head screw and label any two parts.



Most candidates were able to sketch a screw and also state defects in timber.  However, the candidates who attempted the question could not give the appropriate response to the question.

The expected response is as given below:

  1. Solid wood continually works and this causes instability in the dimensions of a

workpiece.  This continuous movement will cause stress if plastic laminate which is more stable is placed on it.  The plastic laminate may crack or even break.

            (b)       -           Burr
                        -           Interlocked grain
                        -           Live knot
                        -           Spike knot.
