In this five-day course we’ll learn in depth the following aspects of cabinetmaking:
- An approach to design, plans and maquettes.
- The behavior of wood and constructive solutions.
- Making stub mitered tenons with drawbore pins (morticing by hand and a possibility to introduce machines).
- Spring joint on the top components and fixing with shrinkage buttons.
- Leg tapering, introducing the spokeshave to produce curved rails, chamfering the top.

This course is oriented to students with a minimum background on the basic tools and techniques and is an ideal follow-up to Level 1. If you never used a hand plane or a backsaw is essential to attend previously to the Hexagonal Stool workshop or preferably the Level 1.
