Description

Learn classic furniture making techniques while making a beautiful wall-mounted cabinet. You can use it as tool storage for your home shop, a stunning home for your liquor and glassware, or the perfect place for your delicate knick knacks. This class will take you all the way from rough lumber to finished cabinetry. Students will mill, glue up panels, cut box joints on the table saw, create a frame-and-panel door, and learn to install hardware, all while keeping to precise measurements and working from project plans. At the end of this class, students will have the chance to customize the inside of their cabinet to fit their own needs. This project will teach you the skills to create other kinds of casework: dressers, bookshelves, cabinets, display cases, nightstands, etc.

Students should bring a pencil and notebook to every class. This class requires roughly 13 board feet of 4/4, and 3 board feet of 5/4 hardwood rough lumber. Students may purchase a lumber package from us, available in select domestic hardwoods, or bring their own lumber to the first session of this class. If you would like to bring your own lumber, please contact us ahead of time to make sure you meet the project's dimension requirements.

This class is limited to eight students.

      Prerequisite

      This workshop requires that students first take Intro to Woodworking. This prerequisite class teaches the function and safe use of the jointer, planer, table saw, and bandsaw and also teaches the very important skill of milling rough lumber flat and square. In our experience, almost everyone benefits from taking Intro to Woodworking, but please email hello@alliedwoodshop.com if you think that you already have these skills and knowledge. 

      We also recommend that you take Intro to Joinery and Furniture Making: Tables, although they are not required. These classes build on the basics of milling, introduce the concept of wood movement, teach how to cut boards to specific dimensions accurately and precisely, and present basic wood joinery. 

      Allied Woodshop is moving! All classes after 10/31/2022 will be held at our new location at 4160 Whiteside Street, Los Angeles, CA 90063. Free parking on site and additional free street parking available.
