||This is a four part hands-on series spread over four consecutive Sundays on how to make your own kitchen cabinets. In the first class, students will learn to make and assemble a miniature version of a kitchen cabinet complete with a face frame. Students will learn techniques that will make it easy to create strong and accurate cabinets without cutting corners. Students will also see examples of how to take their woodworking projects to the next level. In part 2, students will focus on the inside of the cabinet, starting with how to drill the holes for shelf pins then going on to see several ways to make drawers including making a dovetailed drawer box using special jigs. Class 3 is where students will learn the safe and effective way to use a set of cope and stick router bits to make the three parts of a frame and panel system. The method can be used for cabinet doors, end panels or wainscoting. In Part 4 and final class, all elements of the first three classes will be brought together. Students will learn how to mount drawer fronts, install hardware, hang doors and install the cabinetry. Still photos will be allowed throughout the series and there is an additional materials fee of $138.
