About

This intermediate-level class starts with an overview of cabinet styles with an emphasis on Euro-style and a discussion about cabinet materials and useful tools. Then learn how to:

  • Sketch a plan
  • Make a cut list
  • Estimate material
  • Accurately and safely cut down a sheet of plywood
  • Assemble the pieces into a sturdy, square cabinet box
  • Add a door and adjust the hinges so the door hangs properly

Details

  • The class covers the basics of how to install cabinets, but installation is not demonstrated.
  • At the end of this class, you'll be prepared to build simple cabinets with the dimensions you want during open studio sessions.
  • If you have a complicated cabinet, extra help is available in the Guided Woodworking Open Studio sessions.

Project

You will go home with an upper cabinet approximately 28" tall, 20" wide, and 12" deep, with one door.

Materials

A $100 materials fee, included in the cost of the class, covers all the plywood, hardware, and supplies you need.

Prerequisites
