In this class, students will learn the basics of how to fabricate professional, long-lasting wood cabinet doors and drawers, working together to outfit a series of cabinets for the shop areas at Artisan's Asylum. Students will take the fabrication process all the way from layout to install, getting trained on most of the equipment in the woodshop in the process and getting the chance for extensive hands-on practice time under the supervision of a master carpenter. Students can also pride themselves on the fact that the final product will be in active use by the Artisan's Asylum community for years to come!
By the end of the session, students will learn how to use almost every tool in the woodshop at an intermediate level. This includes the use of the table saw, panel saw, miter saw, router and router table, planer, jointer, hand drill, nail gun and more.
Basic woodshop skills a plus, but not required.
Materials will be provided by Artisan's Asylum.
