In this hands-on cabinet making class, students will work with both plywood and solid wood to build a wall mounted cabinet. The basic cabinet-making techniques learned in this class can be applied to building kitchen cabinets or built-ins. Students will start off by constructing the cabinet case out of veneered plywood, then they will learn the different methods for making face frames and solid wood edging for the case. Each student will make an overlay door for their cabinet using frame and panel construction. We will install the door with euro hinges. We will review the techniques for making both fixed & adjustable shelving. Students will then apply the adjustable shelving techniques to their cabinet. Lastly, we go over adding additional details and finishing touches to give the cabinets a professional look and make them stand out. If you have prior experience this class will help you refresh and refine your cabinet-making skills.
