Why pay a premium for commercial cabinets that look like everyone else's when you can build your own unique ones for less and have a lot of fun doing it? This course will show you exactly how to build your own custom cabinetry, from simple utility units to elegant kitchen and bath cabinets. Students will learn a system that relies on just three simple joints and requires only two principal tools: the table saw and the router. It is easily within the reach of almost anybody, even those with little woodworking experience. Topics to be covered include designing cabinets to fit your own aesthetics and budget, laying out and measuring, building cases (or cabinet boxes), adding doors and/or drawers, selecting and utilizing hardware, and finishing and installing the end product. We'll build a group project which allows each student to experience all aspects of a cabinet job.
