Furniture and Cabinetmaking 3

In this class we will build on the techniques used in Furniture & Cabinetmaking 1 & 2.  We will construct a cabinet with paneled sides, hand dovetail & fit a drawer, and build & fit a door.  We will go thru the design process of the cabinet we are building concentrating on not only overall proportions but the relationship of doors to drawer size, and thickness of legs to cabinet size to achieve a balanced look. We will look at ways to scale projects from photos and show various mock-up ideas to help with the overall size.  There will be more hands on router usage for edge detailing and door construction as well as various low cost methods for door construction.
