Cabinetmaking begins with a love of wood and an eye for detail. Modern cabinetmaking combines the accumulated knowledge of hundreds of years of traditional woodworking, with the use of standard, yet modern, tools and technology.
In this program, you take your love of wood and turn it into a marketable skill. You learn entry-level skills, shop safety and fine joinery of the trade: from identifying and selecting wood stock to reading drawings and operating woodworking machines.
You receive instruction and hands-on practise in the basic arts of cabinetry, including shaping and cutting wood, assembling components, installing fasteners and hardware and working on the preparation of articles for finishing, including the application of different types of decorative and protective finishes.
