Introduction to Cabinetmaking
The starter class, wherein the class as a whole collaborates to make a simple set of 'institutional' cabinets made of melamine. Intended to familiarize all students with the use of a table saw and breaking down sheet goods, you'll learn how to cut square parts, install T-mould, hinges, and drawer slides, but you won't go home with a cabinet to call your own.
The second, slightly more involved class teaches students how to make a solid-wood-face-framed cabinet with frame-and-panel doors and drawer face. Much of the construction is the same, but the incorporation of solid wood presents its own challenges. Each student will make a cabinet for themselves, many choose to make it a router table.
