Wood Joinery Workshop: Drawers

Monday May 10 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Join pieces of wood into drawers and explores different approaches to this important part of cabinetry.

Join pieces of wood into drawers and explores different approaches to this important part of cabinetry.

You will learn how to properly use dowels, biscuits and pocket screws to make strong invisible joints for drawers in this two-and-a-half-hour long session.

Wood joinery is one of the most basic concepts in woodworking. If we didn’t have the ability to join two pieces of wood together in a solid fashion, all woodworking pieces would be sculptures, carved out of a single piece of wood. However, with the many varied types of wood joinery, a woodworker has a number of different joints in his arsenal from which to choose.

About the instructor: Murray Long has been a woodworker since the 1980s, and has made everything from fine furniture to kitchen cabinetry, finishing carpentry, porches, tree houses and garden sheds. He moved to Whitehorse from Ontario in August 2019 to be closer to family and is currently finishing an addition to his house for a new workshop.

Closed-toed shoes required. Wear clothes that can get dirty.

Minimum 4 students | Maximum 6 students | Cancellation Policy
