Case Making for Beginners
This foundation woodworking class will teach you how to build basic cabinets using both power tools and hand tools. This course is perfect for beginners or for intermediates who want to hone their skills. Everything you will need is here in the workshop along with a really knowledgeable, patient instructor who will show you safe methods of work.
Learning by doing helps to really support understanding so this class is going to be very hands-on.
The project is a small wall-mounted case piece. We’ll cover a lot of ground. You will learn how to:
- use both plywood and solid wood and understand their qualities
- create frame and panel doors
- use the table saw, bandsaw and router
- select and install euro hinges and butt hinges
- select and install different kinds of shelves
You will be able to use all of these cabinet-making techniques to build kitchen cabinets or built-in cases.
Lastly, we go over adding additional 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 cabinet-making skills but this is also for beginners.
