Cabinet Maker Career Overview
When buying cabinets and other furnishings for their homes or offices, customers often select fine wood furniture that is made by cabinet makers and bench carpenters. Cabinet makers are precision wood workers who design, cut, shape and assemble wood components into a finished product.
They work from blueprints and drawings, select the lumber for proper grain, texture and color and use power hand tools to fabricate and finish the pieces. Often pieces are custom made to exact customer specifications.
Bench carpenters are woodworkers who may work on assembly lines and use hand and power tools to assemble pre-cut and pre-fabricated wooden parts into finished proucts.
Woodworkers must be able to work with their hands, read blueprints and drawings, have an eye for detail and possess a good working knowledge of mathematics. Many woodworkers begin as helpers. It takes at least two to three years on the job to develop the necessary skills.
A high school or trade school diploma or equivalent is desireable for entry to this field.
If you have a creative flair and enjoy working with wood, creating beautiful furniture as a cabinet maker, or bench carpenter, can be very satisfying work.
