College of the Redwoods Historic Millwork
Students projects were revolved around several major projects for the Spring of 2012. These projects included the turning of newl posts and balusters for the HPRT field school. Also on the project list was the milling and construction of redwood cabinets and counter tops to furnish the field school. Students had to mill their own profile knives to create the details that were to be replicated on the newly milled picture rail, crown molding for cabinets, the raised panels of the cabinet doors.

The cabinets took the most length to prepare due to the stock had to be squared up and planed to the proper thickness then calculated for each style and rail that it would take to create each individual panel. Further more a special router set up was needed to create the radius profile seen on the door pictured top left
Between three different classes, Millworks, Cabinet Making, and Interior Finishes the project is moving forward and is nearing completion.
