Casework | Learn The Process
MAKE A MODERN CABINET
The class is design to bring together a wide variety of techniques and building processes into one project build. It is ideal for extending woodworking knowledge established in earlier courses.
You will need to have some knowledge under your belt – how to mill lumber, make joints such as mortise and tenon, box joints, etc.
Although students will work independently, there will be plenty of learning opportunities as we highlight key learnings and unique approaches along the way.
The class will feature numerous demos as well as plenty of time for project work.
Key Learning Points
You’ll hone skills in sequencing, construction, joinery, installation, and safe tool operation and you will learn and practice:
- internal case and web frames
- drawer construction
- door & hinge installation
- frame and panel techniques
- hardware selection and installation
The goal of the class is to cover the technicals of cabinet making, but from a design standpoint there are some variables that you will have control over.
- You may choose to door or drawer, or if you familiar with both of these we will challenge you to do a two drawer cabinet.
- You’ll also have some flexiblity on sizing – you may +/- 2″ in any direction from the following measurements 26″ L x 23″ x 18″ deep. The bigger the piece is the slower the make process is, so judge according to your skill set. If this is the first time building a cabinet keep it small as possible.
- Material choices: Walnut, Cherry, Maple, Sapele
- Leg choice – Styled as shown in photo, or you may purchase your own legs
We touch bases with you about all of these option prior to the class.
