The course price includes instruction, daily lunches and refreshments, and a complete kit with all premium hardwoods, vises, cabinet hardware, consumables, and finishes.

During the course you will learn:

  • how to cut many different joints with a combination of hand and power tools
  • methods for production mass laminating
  • cabinetmaking techniques for doors, drawers, and carcases
  • proper boring methods
  • hardware installation
  • hand tool use, sanding, and finishing

Please plan to bring the following tools. If you are lacking any of these required tools, we can order them for you and have them packaged with your bench kit on the first day of the class for an additional fee. Please call to discuss 252.916.8226

  • Western Style Backsaw or Japanese Pull Saw

  • Block Plane
