Tansu Wall Cabinet | Mike Pekovich
Make a Tansu Wall Cabinet with Mike Pekovich
Join Mike Pekovich and make a beautiful wall cabinet in this five-day class.
Dovetails and through-tenons provide plenty of strength and offer some visual interest, and Mike has some great tips for cutting accurate, stress-free joinery.
The frame-and-panel door gives the cabinet it’s personality and offers some solid lessons in cabinet making. 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 is a lot of fun and 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.
