We all have 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 for the home or shop. Whatever the project, this class is all about the challenging jobs you look forward to starting but just need motivation. 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. Students will see how easy it is to completely transform the look of a project by adding the right moldings. Gary will demonstrate the different types of concealed hinges, their applications and learn the most efficient ways to install and adjust drawer slides. He will also share a PowerPoint presentation on building a wall bed, also known as a Murphy bed. Many of the most interesting projects begin with some of these shared images.

Students will learn how to turn a concept from one or even multiple pictures into a finished product. During the week, Students will work in groups to build projects like a Murphy bed, corner hutch or executive desk, window seat or step back 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, at work or in the shop that you have been waiting to tackle you won’t want to miss this class.
