Cabinet Makers at a Glance

Cabinet makers build and install cabinets, desks, and other high-grade fixtures made of wood, plastic laminate, and solid surface materials. Woodworking machines and power tools are used to cut, shape, and form the products. Cabinet makers need attention to detail, math abilities for measuring and computing, and great skill with a variety of woodworking equipment.
