Woodworking Workshop: Hanging Cupboard

September 14 @ 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM


In this day-long workshop, you will make a Shaker-style hanging cupboard with a flat paneled door and two shelves, based on an example in the Hancock collection. This charming pine cupboard, ideal for storing small items, measures 18” x 11.” All pieces will be pre-cut for assembly.

The workshop is perfect for a beginning or intermediate woodworker, especially someone interested in learning more about Shaker craftsmanship and construction. You will gain skills in hand-planing, sanding, chiseling, and nailing, and you’ll learn how to attach hinges and door hardware. Your choice of finish can be applied at home. Workshop participants also get the opportunity to explore similar wooden objects in the collection. Recommended tools to bring (if you have them): Hammer, small nail set, Phillips screwdriver, sharp chisel, sharp hand plane, try square, and utility knife.
