CABINETMAKING (CAB)

MISSION: The cabinetmaking program provides students with the knowledge of hand tools, power tools, and other industry related equipment geared towards the promotion of excellent workmanship in cabinetmaking.

Despite the development of sophisticated plastics and other materials, the demand for wood products continues unabated.  Helping to meet the demand are woodworkers. Graduates of the program are found in industries that use wood to produce furniture, cabinets, musical instruments, and other fabricated wood products; and in small shops that make architectural woodwork, furniture and many other specialty items.  Production woodworkers set up, operate, and tend woodworking machines such as power saws, planers, sanders, lathes, jointers, and routers that cut and shape components from lumber, plywood, and other wood products. This program consists of one short certificate.
