Learn the basics of designing and building Euro-style cabinets, also known as frameless cabinets, as you build one!

About this Class

Build a simple cabinet that includes the basic features found in base and upper cabinets in this intermediate-level class. We start with an overview of cabinet styles with an emphasis on Euro-style and a discussion about cabinet materials and useful tools.

You learn how to sketch a plan, make a cut list, and estimate materials, then go on to accurately and safely cut down a sheet of plywood and assemble the pieces into a sturdy, square cabinet box. You add the drawer and door and learn how to adjust the hinges so the door hangs properly. The class covers the basics of how to install cabinets, but that is not demonstrated.

At the end of this class, you'll be prepared to build simple cabinets with the dimensions you want during open studio sessions. If you have a complicated cabinet, extra help is available in our Coached Woodworking Open Studio sessions, which are listed on the Woodworking Calendar.


You must wear safety glasses and closed-toe shoes, tie back long hair, and avoid loose-fitting clothing and jewelry.

We recommend bringing your own safety glasses.


You will go home with an upper cabinet approximately 28" tall, 20" wide and 12" deep, with one drawer and one door.


A $100 materials fee included in the cost of the class covers all the plywood, hardware, and supplies you need.


You must have completed Orientation to the Woodshop and Woodshop Tool Safety Checkout 1 & 2. Multiple sessions are listed on the Woodworking Calendar.
