CABINET MAKER

Cabinet makers build individually designed and produced pieces of wooden furniture such as chairs, tables, bookcases, chests of drawers and storage or display cabinets. They may also restore antiques or repair damaged furniture. Cabinet makers start by making a drawing, either by hand or on computer. They then choose the appropriate quantity and quality of wood to employ and, using a range of tools, they construct the item from scratch. If they are employed by a company, they may not be so involved in the drawing and planning stage. Many cabinet makers, however, are self-employed and their work would include discussing every aspect of the design and the cost with their customers.
