Considering when and where to start on that big cabinet project you want to build and install? Start here. Before you jump into a big project, learn the basic techniques, tools and equipment used by both traditional and contemporary cabinet makers. As a class project, each student builds a pine wall cabinet (24" x 32" x 5”) with a door, using hand tools, while exploring some basic machinery techniques as well. Students learn the proper techniques to cut clean mortise and tenons with chisels and drills, work with a shoulder plane to rabbet the door panel and explore the safe use of a table saw, planer, jointer, band saws, and hand saws. If time permits, finishes ranging from traditional milk paints to more contemporary varnishes suitable to cabinetry will be covered.
