From a prepared cutting list of timber (over 300 parts) each student will construct the cabinet and façade. The quoined edges will be formed using wood blocks; the dentil moulding cornice will be applied. The windows will be fitted with moulded surrounds; the columned moulded portico doorway will be assembled and applied. The double door facade will be hinged to reveal and access the rooms. A simple mahogany stand will be made and a finish will be applied. ​ Approx. size in miniature 145mm High x 90mm Wide x 47mm Deep. ​Completion is likely in class, however a detailed booklet is provided to complete the piece at home if necessary.​All tools and supplies will be provided however please feel free to bring your own small tool boxes and any optical equipment you may require.​
