Basic Cabinetmaking with Patrick Murrin March 28-April 1, 2022

Cabinetmaking 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 ways to build cabinets. Pat reviews safety, tool set up, 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. Pat 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 gained can be applied to any cabinetmaking project. Following this class, students will tackle larger projects with a solid game plan, working more efficiently and wasting less material. They will become woodworkers, not “wood watchers.”
