Regular price $4,225.00

This desk-style workstation includes built-in locking tool drawer, removable activity/work panel with mounted plumb, level blocks, built-in lock/key, and power strip. Students learn to mix, pour, and smooth cement using hand tools. Students explore a variety of job tasks of a cement mason by mixing concrete and pouring it into a stepping-stone form. The form is placed on a layer of sand in a mold pan to allow decorative stones to be cast into the cement. This work experience exposes the student to the processes of mixing, pouring, and finishing concrete.
