Course Description  This course is an introduction to contemporary cabinet work, such as might be used in making kitchen cabinets.  On the course you will make an 800mm base cabinet in MDF, with biscuit and domino joints.  You will make two frame and panel doors; one will be fitted overlay using concealed hinges, the other fitted in frame using butt  hinges. You will explore different drawer construction methods and make and fit a self close drawer with overlay front. We will also investigate the modern hardware available, such as concealed hinges and metal drawer runners, based on the Hafele  and Hettich catalogues.
