Learn classic furniture making techniques while making tool storage for your home shop. 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.
This tool cabinet is large enough to fit a set of hand planes, chisels, marking tools, and even some hand saws. At the end of this class, students will have the chance to customize the inside of their cabinet to fit their own tools.
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 cherry or ash, 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.
- February 1 - March 8, 2022, Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6:00pm to 10:00pm
- Class time totals 40 hours
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 email@example.com if you think that you already have these skills and knowledge.
We also recommend that you take Fundamentals of Woodworking, although it is not required. This class builds on the basics of milling, introduces the concept of wood movement, teaches how to cut boards to specific dimensions accurately and precisely, and presents basic wood joinery.
Starting September 30, 2021, Allied Woodshop will require all students and instructors to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to attend a group class.
