Modern Furniture Construction - Making a Kitchen Cabinet   

Sat Jul 08 10:00 AM A Class with Sebastion Lata

After Sebastian Lata, a licensed general contractor and master woodworker, gave a free Festool instruction demonstration, we received many queries for a hands-on class that gave students a chance to employ the techniques Sebastian showed them. So by popular demand, we're offering two classes in modern construction taught by Sebastian, with the goal of offering other classes in the series.

These hands-on classes offer a great opportunity to learn the techniques of modern construction and take away practical, useful projects that you’ll be proud of. These all day classes are held at our location in Brooklyn. We’ll be using Festool tools, ideal for precision woodworking in small spaces.

Making a Kitchen Cabinet

Class description: This is the perfect class for someone planning to build a kitchen. Students will build a basic modern design upper kitchen cabinet using standard joinery, modern Blum hinges and a French cleat. Students will cut and edge-band the plywood for professional grade cabinet with a shelf. Note: the completed cabinet will be made of pre-finished cabinet-grade Maple plywood suitable for hanging on the wall, but it is intended to be a sample and its dimensions may not be appropriate for every student’s kitchen project. With the cost of custom cabinets in the tens of thousands, students can learn the basics of cabinet making and save thousands on their kitchen renovations.

Instructor: Sebastion Lata
Cost: $300.00 + $75.00 materials fee (Total = $375). All tools will be provided.
Students must bring (or purchase before the class) safety goggles and hearing protection.

Class duration: 10:00 AM - 5:00PM with a 1 hour break for lunch.
Where: At our showroom at 112 26th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11232

Sharpening 101 - Back by popular demand!  

Sat Jul 15 12:00 PM (Everything you wanted to know about sharpening but were afraid to ask)

Sharp tools are a requirement for woodworking enjoyment -- but many people have never used truly sharp tools. By popular demand, Joel is offering another round of this free class in which he'll show what it means for an edge to be sharp, discuss the basic options for sharpening tools, and, most importantly, teach a simple technique for free-hand sharpening. Joel will also hang out after his presentation to answer questions and help people master the techniques involved.

Most of the class will be explanation and demonstration, but we'll have space set up so people can try the basic hand motions and techniques. We also want everyone to get a sense for what a truly sharp tool feels like in action. If you want to bring one of your dull chisels to the class, by all means bring it (damaged chisels will be covered in a separate class on grinding). We will have tools to practice on for some hands-on experience; the focus will be on sharpening chisels and plane blades.

Parking is available in our driveway, near our driveway, and under the expressway. The subway (R train to 25th street in Brooklyn) is a few blocks blocks away.

You don't have to register but please add a comment here so we can get an idea of the number of people who are planning to come.
