Due to popular demand, here's another doors and drawers class. Please note that the Super Bowl is the night before this class. We would like to avoid last minute cancellations by any football fans. Also, two attendees have already been confirmed for this class, leaving 4 spaces.Sign up now!Course Description:
As the next step in the development of Festool end-user focused classes, we are calling for entries for a 2-day class focused on the construction of various styles and types of cabinet doors and drawers, utilizing the Festool System. The class will take place at our headquarters in Lebanon, IN, and will be primarily geared towards professional applications.
In this class, the tools and techniques necessary to build and install shop-quality doors will be covered, with emphasis on Shaker flat panel, slab w/ applied molding, faux raised panel, and cope and stick with raised panel. Door styles to include inset, overlay and half-overlay.
Drawer box applications will focus on both inset and overlay styles, using blind and through-tenon construction. Dovetail drawer construction will be discussed, but not covered.
Though participants will walk away with a range of broadly applicable skills, the class will be primarily focused on pro-oriented techniques and applications. From raw material to finished boxes ready for finish, you will learn how to work faster, easier, and smarter with the Festool System.
Since most of the two days will be spent in the shop, actually using the tools, we request that registrants have some previous knowledge of the Festool System, and/or the basics of trim carpentry or cabinet construction. Safety is an extremely high priority in this setting, and we have billed this as an intermediate to expert level class since this class will be almost all hands-on.
Safety glasses and earplugs will be required during all tool use. In addition, participants will be asked to sign a standard liability waiver at the outset of class
. If this presents a problem, please let us know beforehand, since this will impact our ability to allow you to work with the tools. What will I learn?Onsite Cabinet Door Construction

We will notify selected participants (as well as a handful of alternates) by email. The one thing we ask of our selected participants is that you arrive on time and stick around for the full two days.Travel and Accommodations:
Participants are responsible for all travel and accommodations. We will be glad to help you make hotel reservations at our preferred local establishment (Fairfield Inn on 86th Street in Indianapolis). And for those participants staying at the Fairfield Inn, Festool will arrive for pick-up on both days at 7:30am.
Festool will provide basic refreshments (bagels and coffee) in the morning at our HQ, and lunch will be provided both days.
Since some of the best conversations happen outside of the classroom, we will plan either a cookout or a group dinner on the first night following class.When & Where?
