Make an Arts & Crafts Style Cabinet with Mike Pekovich


This cabinet packs a whole lot of Arts and Crafts in a small package.  This 6 day class features a great project which is useful as an end table or nightstand. It is a scaled-down version of Mike’s display case which was  featured on the cover of Fine Woodworking magazine. This project packs all of the lessons of the larger case in an easy-to-manage size.

It’s a great exercise is solid wood case construction and working with 1/4 sawn white oak. We will start the week by tackling the through-tenon joinery which is an icon feature of Arts and Crafts furniture. Then we’ll follow up with great lessons on making and fitting drawers, and building doors with a built-in rabbet for glass panels. Finally, we'll break out the glasscutters and soldering irons and make the leaded glass panel as well. This is a great opportunity to learn from one of the best furniture makers– and instructors– around! Don’t miss it! Tuition: $945.00 plus materials

Section 083021A: Monday—Saturday, August 30—September 4, 9:00am—5:00pm

Note- The project for this class was previously an Arts & Crafts style side chair. That project will be done sometime in 2022.

Thanks for the last five weeks. This was one of the best learning experiences I have ever had. Thanks for your patience and I look forward to taking more courses in the future. Meanwhile, this summer, I'll keep practicing dovetails and I'll look forward to seeing you at the open house. 




All I can say is WOW!  Mike Mascelli is absolutely terrific!
