Cabinet making is the fundamental place to start woodworking, and this class is designed for those just starting. Students make a small face frame cabinet, which is the foundation of the class. Design, layout, dressing the stock, and building drawers and doors are covered in detail. There will be demonstrations of many different ways to build cabinets. Zane reviews safety, tool setup, jigs and fixtures, assembly, installation, and mounting hardware. Students can choose from at least two methods of making doors and drawers based on the equipment they already own or plan to acquire. By the end of the week, everyone will have made a nice oak hallway cabinet that will last for years to come. Zane helps give students the confidence needed to tackle other cabinet projects such as vanities, bookcase units, gun cabinets, hutches, and even kitchen cabinets. The skill you gain can be applied to any cabinetmaking project you elect to build. You'll tackle larger projects with a solid game plan working more efficiently and wasting less material. You'll become a woodworker, not a "wood watcher."
