Build a Wall or Floor Cabinet with a Door or Doors
February 25 @ 9:00 am – 2:00 pm CST
Make a basic cabinet with a door – this can turn into anything!
Feeling adventurous? Are you thinking about making your own kitchen cabinets or do you have a weird space that no cabinet from a box store will fit?
Great! Let’s make a basic cabinet body and attach a door to it using cabinet hardware you can find anywhere. We’ll show you how to join the pieces together, what materials to use, and tools to have on hand. We’ll also talk about hinges, latches, pulls, and knobs for those doors.
You’ll have stains to choose from to finish and hardware to use, too. You’ll go home with some polyurethane to finish it when the stain dries.
If you haven’t taken Wood Basics and Wood Joinery, that would be a good idea. But it’s not required or anything. We’ll use some of those skills in this class.
We will break for lunch. Bring a lunch and water bottle with you!
You will learn:
- Cabinet materials: MDF, wood, etc.
- Tools and safety
- Nail guns and adhesives
- Making doors with hinges
- How to use a nail gun
- How to install hardware
- How to stain and seal
All supplies for the class will be provided for you, including safety gear.
