Box making / Cabinet making fundamentals

Box making classes have become our “signature class”.

Clients have the choice of timbers,materials, size, configuration and personalising the project to suit its purpose.

Organisers or pigeon holes are always a neat addition to your cabinet. The addition of hardware, fittings, leather and glass add layers of interest and skills.

This class provides the foundation skills that can be found in classic cabinet making.

The final product can be mounted on a wall or sit restfully on a sideboard.
