Introduction to Case Making 

A beginner’s casework class

A foundation woodworking class that will teach you how to design and build case pieces. This course is perfect for beginners with some power tool experience or intermediates who want to hone their skills. We have everything you need at the workshop–along with really knowledgeable, patient instructors who will ensure you learn safely.

Casework and cabinetry have many similarities and differences; case pieces include buffets, desks, chests of drawers, and cabinets refer to kitchen and bathroom built-ins, but this class focuses on casework. 

In this class, you will create prototype case pieces to practice what you learned during the week. When you get home, you’ll be able to take it apart to use it as a reference for future projects.

We will cover the following:

  • designing and planning your case piece
  • selection, processing, and using plywood and solid wood
  • case construction and joinery choices
  • installation of:
    • doors
    • hinges (butt, euro etc.)
    • shelves
    • drawer mechanisms

Lastly, we’ll go over adding details and finishing touches to give the cabinets a professional look and make them stand out.

If you have prior experience, this class will help you refresh and refine your case-making skills, but this is primarily for beginners.

You can also use these case-making techniques to elevate your skills and build pieces like Meredith Hart’s North End Wall Cabinet.

Please Note: If you have not taken the Beginners Woodworking class or have not used a table saw, bandsaw or router before, this would not be a good first class to sign up for.
