Cabinets and Built-ins

View Syllabus

This mid-level course is intended for woodworkers who are interested in building professional quality custom cabinets and built-ins. Learn to build sturdy solid plywood cabinetry with solid wood face frames, doors and drawers combining the methods developed by production cabinet builders with custom techniques that make projects versatile and creative, often without requiring a professional shop. Students should be experienced with the safe operation of wood working hand tools and the safe operation of basic shop tools such as table saw, router, circular saw, and miter saw. Learn to develop efficient cut lists from simple plans, break down materials with a track saw, make dado and rabbet cuts, build cabinets using pocket hole screws, mill and assemble drawers and panel doors. 

Course Reviews:

"Paul is great! He has a great way of teaching that is engaging, fun and very informative. He took the time to interact with students one on one to ensure we understood the content. He has a great sense of humor and also a strong confidence on the subject matter."

"Paul has a very easy-going nature which created a great learning environment. He had a lot of great insight and tips. Trying to keep 8 students of varying experience on task, safe and engaged in a shop environment with powerful and potentially dangerous tools has got to be challenging and probably a bit nerve-racking, but Paul never let that show. Pretty inspiring!'
