Cabinetmakers design and build furniture, modules and other products made from wood or composite materials. They create jigs and connections (dovetails, mortise, tenon, etc.), cut, edge, glue, assemble and sand wood before perfecting finishes (paint, varnish, veneer, etc.). Cabinetmaking is a traditional trade that requires attention to detail, creativity and manual skills. A job as a cabinetmaker is suitable for people with a talent for drawing who like to work alone.
