Cabinet by Garrett Hack

        In Garrett's Words ....


    A small cabinet is an ideal place to learn a highly efficient construction system I often use for solid wood cases and chests of any size. It is based on the sliding dovetail, a very strong joint cut quickly and accurately with a router. A useful cabinet is a great project for other construction aspects, from how you develop a design, though to attaching shelves and paneled backs, making and attaching moldings, corner details, building and hinging doors, and if we have time, how to add a drawer or two.

    We will work partly by machine and partly by hand, maximizing the efficiency of both. Emphasis will be on hand skills, using many planes, chisels and other hand tools to size, smooth, shape, and fit parts. Working by hand is a way to impart intriguing details to your work, from subtle surfaces to unique molding shapes. It also is a path to developing a personal style and greater confidence working wood.
         

         Pre-requisites: Excellence With Hand Tools and Mastering Machinery or equivalent. This program requires that students have the ability to sharpen and use basic hand tools and safely mill material to dimension with machinery.
