Description

(9:30am-5pm) This class concentrates on the techniques used in cabinet making rather than those used in furniture making. Steve Squires is a professional cabinetmaker who has also been teaching the craft for many years. He brings with him years of labor saving tricks which students should find invaluable in completing their own projects at home. A medium sized painted plywood bookshelf is the project for this class and features techniques such as cutting plywood panels to size, using solid wood edging, making and applying a molding, making a mitered base, using a Kreg jig and working with a router. The design of the bookcase features a plinth base, adjustable shelves and decorative moldings. This class is designed for beginner and intermediate woodworkers who are interested in learning techniques they can use in numerous home improvement projects. The bookcase utilizes common power tools that most homeowners would have or might be considering purchasing. This class will provide you with the foundation skills needed for more advanced projects such as kitchen cabinets, storage cabinets, entertainment centers, counter tops and more.  Advanced skills such as dovetailed drawers and raised panel doors are featured in other classes in this cabinetmaking series.
