Mike has studied furniture making, fine art, and graphic design, and he’s been putting those skills to use designing and building furniture for over 30 years. For the last 20 of those, he’s also been busy as the art director at Fine Woodworking magazine and most recently as the author of The Why and How of Woodworking, where his aim is to communicate woodworking how-to in a clear and inspiring way.
Tansu Wall Cabinet with Mike Pekovich
Make a beautiful wall cabinet in this six-day class
Dovetails and through-tenons provide plenty of strength and offer visual interest, and Mike has some great tips for cutting accurate, stress-free joinery.
The frame-and-panel door gives the cabinet its personality and offers some solid cabinet-making lessons. You’ll learn how to make, fit, and hang a traditional door.
In addition, you’ll finish it off with a Kumiko panel. This traditional Japanese latticework technique can brighten up just about any project. We’ll finish off the case with a drawer that offers a simple alternative to the dovetailed drawer.
