Cabinetmaking April - May 2011

John Marckworth just finished up teaching two weeks of cabinetmaking at the Port Townsend School of Woodworking. The students spent the first week learning the basics of cabinetmaking and the second week building and installing some kitchen cabinets for the dorm accommodation at Fort Worden.

The kitchen in 225 Down East (in Fort jargon) has been adopted by several of the partner organizations  at the Fort as preferred accommodation for some of their courses.In particular Madrona Mindbody Institute has spent a lot of time refurnishing, hanging new curtains and painting to make the space comfortable and welcoming. Out contribution is to let students get real world experience designing and installing cabinets as more than a workshop exercise. Everybody benefits.
