Home Cabinetmaking


A cabinetmaker produces furniture, cabinetry and architectural millwork from a variety of natural and manufactured materials for both the commercial and residential markets. Cabinetmakers specialise in working with wood and other construction materials to fabricate useful and decorative items. They must follow blueprints and designer specifications exactly to construct and repair these wooden articles. Accuracy is imperative as they regularly need to fit small parts and sub-assemblies together, to precisely make and install cupboards and cases and to operate woodworking machines to cut and form parts. Today sophisticated equipment, basic woodworking machines, and portable power and hand tools are used to perform many of the job functions. Cabinetmakers must have a broad knowledge of wood, its structures and properties, and an assortment of cabinetry hardware and materials.
