Doors for Cabinetry & Fine Furniture

with Robert Spiece
Showcase your craftsmanship with perfectly fitted doors for cabinetry and fine furniture.

Improve the quality of your cabinetry and fine furniture as you learn how to design, join and properly fit doors. Furniture maker and expert instructor Robert Spiece will review the anatomy of the door and help you to select the right materials for your project. Learn to join and frame your panels, accurately cut mortises and tenons and fine-tune these pieces with hand tools for clean, precise results. Then, create panels for your doors and even form raised panels without a spindle shaper! Properly sand and glue up your door and add texture and visual interest by pinning mortise and tenon detail. Finally, install hinges and learn to expertly fit the doors you’ve worked so hard to create. You’ll even get Robert’s personal picks for door-catch hardware that’s truly at home in fine furniture.
