Students put their woodworking and welding skills on display at the California Mid-State Fair.
It was all part of the Industrial Arts Competition and Auction.
Everything from furniture, to barbeque smokers were up for grabs.
The projects can sell for anywhere between $100 and $2,000, but participants say the competition is about more than the money.
"My dad's taught me a lot about woodworking, a lot about metal work and also my shop teacher Mr. Fuller, and I think that goes for anybody," said Tommy Harris, an incoming senior at Shandon High School. "I mean when you have your own house and something needs to be fixed, it's nice to know that you can do it."
Cash was not the only thing competitors were vying for.
Several awards were also given out.
