Event description

Description

“The right principle is to ask oneself, ‘is it as good as it can be made?’ or, at least, ‘is it as
good as I can make it?’” – "The Joiner & Cabinet Maker "


First published in 1839, "The Joiner & Cabinet Maker" is at once an entertaining story and an
excellent introduction to hand-tool work. In this class we will build the first two projects from the book: the Packing Box and School Box.

The Packing Box will cover simple project layout, cutting stock to dimension with hand saws, basic planing techniques, and clinching nails. The School Box will develop those skills while covering cutting through-dovetails, preparing short runs of moulding, and installing locks and hinges. The emphasis will be on fundamental hand tool techniques, and using a minimal tool kit to build casework.

“So he sets to work with good heart to make the box”
Cost: $900 plus materials

Kieran Binnie is a woodworker and writer. Kieran’s love of hand tool work started when he enrolled at renowned Totnes School of Guitarmaking in Devon, England, and his interest expanded from lutherie to furniture making following classes with Christopher Schwarz and Roy Underhill. He writes a weekly woodwork blog (overthewireless.com) and is a regular contributor to Furniture & Cabinetmaking Magazine and to Popular Woodworking. He is also working on a forthcoming book on the history of books and bookcases for Lost Art
