Mastering Built-In Furniture

Sponsored by Festool

There are levels of achievement in woodworking. Building your first table, your first chair, and building cabinets for a room in your house. For that last one, there’s an added step to complicate the process: mating the cabinetry to the architecture of the house. Built-in furniture requires a little more knowledge and planning, but by following some simple guidelines and advice from our professional woodworker, Gregory Paolini, built-in’s are easily achieved. Follow along as Greg takes us through the planning, construction and installation of a set of built-in cabinetry, and even take a look at adding doors and drawers to your built-in project. We wrap up the series with a design ideas visit through a house recently completed by Greg’s company to give you some ideas to keep your creativity flowing.
