February 18, 2017, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Intro to Carpentry - Boxes

In Intro to Carpentry, you will learn how to accurately cut and assemble pieces to make a storage cube – aka “a box”. Sounds deceptively simple, but the skills you’ll acquire are the building blocks of furniture, cabinets, rough framing, or even just more boxes!

Stack big ones for a modular shelf. Group small ones for countertop storage. Add wheels and an upholstered top for an ottoman with storage space inside.
