cabinet making courses in east london
Cabinet making is a core subject of The School of Stuff. Cabinet making doesn’t necessarily mean making cabinets. It means the kind of skilled and accurate woodworking that you need to make furniture. Cabinet making is more complex than carpentry or joinery in that it uses more elaborate joints and more precise ways of cutting and shaping, utilizing hardwoods rather than softwoods.
We have two 12 week cabinet making evening classes. Thursday evening: Basic Skills for beginners. Wednesday evening: Intermediate Skills for improvers. We also run intensive five day sessions from time to time.
