Inside Cabinetmaking

Cabinetmakers build storage enclosures for kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms and living rooms. They may make these enclosures from wood, wood composites or metal, and they may build the cabinets to be aesthetically pleasing as well as functional.

Building cabinetry requires the maker to have manual dexterity and enough mathematical ability to draft, measure and cut with precision. Knowledge of material specifications, fastener types and joining techniques is also required. Cabinetmakers also need to know how to apply finishes and safely operate a wide assortment of hand and power tools.
