Everyone has a have-to-do list that has a few want-to-do things mixed in. It could be a job for a client or a project at home or for your shop. Whatever the project, this class is all about the challenging jobs you look forward to starting. At the beginning of class, Gary will demonstrate the basic methods he uses to build cabinets and then show how the same methods can be used to build even the most complex cabinet or built-in project. Gary will cover ways to use composition ornate to create ornate details at surprisingly reasonable prices. You will learn how to completely transform the look of a project by adding the right moldings. Students will see the different types of concealed hinges and their applications and learn the most efficient ways to install and adjust drawer slides. Gary will share a Powerpoint presentation on building a wall bed also known as a Murphy bed. Many of the most interesting projects begin with a shared picture. You will learn how to turn a concept from one or even multiple pictures into a finished product. During the week, each student will design and build a wall-hung storage cabinet. The goal of this class is to take you from thinking, "How did they do that?" to saying, "I know I can do that!" If you have projects at home, work or in the shop that you have been waiting to tackle, or if you want to grow your woodworking business, you won't want to miss this class.
