Classes at Marc Adams School of Woodworking
Cabinetmaking with Marc Adams
Dates: 10/5 - 10/9
Cabinetmaking is probably the easiest way to jump into woodworking full time and is usually the fundamental place to start developing machine skills. This class will focus on designing, estimating, purchasing, laying out, dressing the stock, planning joinery and assembling the case. Special emphasis will be placed on making doors and drawers as well as choosing and installing hardware. This class will be geared toward the very serious woodworker who is considering making cabinets as a source of income. Each day Marc will bring in leaders from around the country to discuss specific topics and issues including members from the lumber, hardware, finishing and plywood industries. There will be a sneak peek at some of the newest trends, techniques and products in the world of custom cabinets. These informative sessions will enlighten students on industrial standards and are designed to be mini-sessions with the shakers and movers in the cabinet industry. There will be two tours. One will be to a high end custom cabinet facility and the other will be to a high end veneer plant. Besides having all these leaders from specific fields and tours, students will find time to make a 36" dry sink unit that will have specific challenges including face frame construction; assembly procedures; unique doors, drawers, trims and moldings; and ways to mount the top. If you are considering cabinetmaking as a future source of income, are planning on making new cabinets for your house, or just love working with wood, then this is the class you have been waiting for.
