We have committed to helping our junior maker Angus on his mission to win the world skills cabinet making event in Abu Dhabi 2017. One of the ways we plan to push is cabinet making skills forward is by setting him projects that allow deep practise of the core skills needed during the finals. Each project should test his ability not just to make accurately but also to problem solve and come up with efficient and accurate processes.
The first of these projects is a stationary box. As well as plenty of hand skills practise with the mitred dovetail joints, piston fit drawer and perfectly fitting lid this project has a very challenging element. To create a wooden hinge.
So far so good…..
