reagan students complete custom cabinet order

Reagan High School's Mill and Cabinetmaking students do it again for the sixth year in a row. The six students were asked to design and build a set of cabinets for a real-life client. The client needed 11 cabinets that had to be designed for all types of various kitchen goods as well as be aesthetically pleasing. The students were also given a timeline of two months to complete the cabinet build.

The project started at the start of the school year and took one month and three weeks to complete. The cabinets were made out of birch plywood and American cherry lumber. The students worked as a team on various parts of the construction and then assembled the parts. The parts then formed the cabinets and the various other components of the cabinets. The students learned throughout the build teamwork and leadership. They also learned how the mechanics of the hardware were installed as they installed soft-close hinges and drawer glides.

The cabinets turned out with the highest of standards through craftsmanship, hardware quality, and the attention to detail that was incorporated throughout the build. The students deserve recognition for their efforts and a pat on the back for a job well done. Great job, mill and cabinetmaking students!
