Class code 2790 is used for employees that manufacture wood or metal patterns. Wood patterns may involve cutting and machining wood with handsaws, jointers, lathes or other machines. There is considerable hand finishing as parts are assembled, glued, sanded and varnished. Metal patterns may involve the creation of a wood model used to make a mold from which the metal pattern is cast. After casting, patterns are cleaned on emery wheels, machined with precision tools and finished to specifications. This code includes hand or machine wood carvings such as furniture parts. It also includes risks engaged with fabricating high grade model ships, railroads, and aircraft. The restrictive phrase “high grade” refers to work of an intricate nature.

Class code 2790 also includes the building of architectural scale models for real estate scale presentations as well as the manufacturing of sand core strainers, shoe forms or lasts (a block or form shaped like a human foot), wood airplane propellers, and photographic model displays. In addition, this code applies to risks engaged in pattern making not otherwise classified. This code is restricted to those risks involved in pattern making as a separate and distinct business. It does not apply to risks engaged in pattern manufacturing when the pattern is used by the risk to manufacture a product.
