Cabinetry Basics: Building the Wall Cabinet

Course Overview

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.
