Do you want to learn fine woodworking? This Free Online Woodworking School will take your woodworking to the next level. We teach you everything you need to know to produce flawless dovetails, piston fit drawers, stunning tables, and objects that will last a lifetime.

This is the second project in the Free Online Woodworking School where I will be showing you how to make a traditional handcrafted cabinet. The skills taught in this series build upon lessons covered in the previous series where we made a dovetailed box. It is strongly recommended you watch that series before commencing this build!

My name is Matt Estlea, I’m a 24 year old Woodworker from Basingstoke in England and my aim is to make your woodworking less s***.

I come from 5 years tuition at Rycotewood Furniture Centre with a further 1 year working as an Artist in Residence at the Sylva Foundation. I now teach City and Guilds Furniture Making at Rycotewood as of September 2018.

If you’re interested in studying at Rycotewood, view their courses here:

I also had 5 years of experience working at Axminster Tools and Machinery where I helped customers with purchasing tools, demonstrated in stores and events, and gained extensive knowledge about a variety of tools and brands. I discontinued this at the start of 2019 to focus solely on video creation and teaching.

During the week, I film woodworking projects, tutorials, reviews and a viewer favourite ‘Tool Duel’ where I compare two competitive manufacturers tools against one another to find out which is best. I also have a Free Online Woodworking School which you should definitely check out!

I like to have a laugh and my videos are quite fast paced BUT you will learn a lot, I assure you.

Lets go make a mess.
