Do you like working with wood but do not want to be a carpenter? Cabinet Making is another great trade pathway where you can work with wood to build beautiful kitchen and bathroom furniture.
A cabinet maker uses hand and machine skills to custom build commercial and traditional style furniture including the manufacture and installation of fitted furniture such as kitchens and bathrooms, and high-end home theatre fit-outs. Accuracy, attention to detail and a love of working with wood and other material is a cabinetmakers dream. There are numerous skills you will learn as a cabinetmaker including the proper use and operation of power saws, power routers and hand tools such as chisels, planes and wood files. You will learn to read job specifications, drawings and diagrams to cut timber to the right measurements. Using glue, dowels, nails and screws you will join parts together to form completed units. Finally, you will learn how to trim and sand joints in preparation towards a finished product.
When you start an Apprenticeship, you are making a commitment as an Apprenticeship is normally an employment contract for four years.
