Explore the fine points of cabinetmaking while building an elegant wall cabinet. Don't be fooled by its small size, this project packs a big punch when it comes to lessons in case, door and drawer construction. Learn fast and efficient dovetail construction while building the case. Mike will cover the ins and outs of frame-and-panel construction while building, fitting and hanging the door. Finally everyone will build and fit a half-blind dovetailed drawer. The focus of the class will be on combining machine and handwork with classic construction techniques to produce work of the highest quality in the most efficient manner. You'll learn how to get your hand tools razor sharp and put them to use with the proper techniques to get the most out of each tool. This class will provide a great foundation for building casework of any size or style.
