Course: COS300L17 Cabinet on Stand

This cabinet-on-stand is made in the style of James Krenov, using the same methods and details for which his work is famous. The cabinet was designed and the prototype built by class instructor and master craftsman David Fleming, who studied with Krenov for two years in the 1980's. All solid wood - domestic ash and African mahogany, in the prototype - the cabinet carcass is doweled, the stand is built using both through and blind mortise and tenon joinery. The doors are hung on brass knife hinges, with hand carved closures and pulls. Inside the cabinet, a small drawer invites the user to open it. The finish is hand-applied - shellac on the inside, an oil/varnish mixture over shellac on the outside.

For the class, some construction details may differ from the prototype if deemed necessary by the instructor. The wood will be selected and milled in advance by the instructor. The species provided may be different than those used in the prototype. Students will:

  • cut all parts to dimension
  • execute all joinery
  • shape cabinet edges and other parts by hand
  • prepare all surfaces for finishing
  • execute all assembly and glue-ups
  • mortise hinges and hang doors
  • do all the detail work
  • complete the hand applied finishing


This class is suited for intermediate to advanced level woodworkers only. Applicants must have completed the Fundamentals of Traditional Woodworking series (I-II-III), or be willing to demonstrate equivalent ability prior to the start of the class. Student tool kits are available for use, but any students who have their own tools are encouraged to bring and use them.
