Mid-Century Whiskey Cart with Philip Morley

In this seven-day class, build your skills and furnish your home with a clean and contemporary Morley Whiskey Cart.

Inspired by the works of James Krenov with a Scandinavian influence and a “Mad Men” flair, Philip designed this cart as a stand-alone piece to store and serve tea or craft cocktails.

You will learn traditional joinery techniques, including mortise and tenons, tambour doors, a frame, and panels. We will also make a simple and precise jig using dowel construction. Furthermore, Philip will explain the importance of reference faces and looking at wood differently to achieve a beautiful grain.

This class is an excellent way to grow your woodworking skills by refining your layout, measurement, and building techniques. You’ll even have the opportunity to add unique design touches, including brass, leather, mirrors, and casters.

Key Learning Objectives:

    • Case construction
    • Designing and constructing tambour doors
    • Hardware installation

We will provide delicious and sustaining lunches for you daily so that you can concentrate on your work.

Materials: Provided by the School

Skill Level: This is an intermediate-level class. Before signing up for this class, students should have competency in the table saw, router, bandsaw, etc., and case-making experience. Please get in touch with Director Kate Swann at (813) 223-3490 for more info.

Philip is currently neck-deep in commission work (Sept 2022), and the School has created this class description with support from Phil. The photos are also Phil’s sketch-up renderings. Students should plan a few more amazing touches as the class progresses.
