Cabinetmaker & Millworker
These craftsmen are
responsible for the fine detail put into the woodwork, decor, and cabinetry in commercial and residential structures. Cabinetmakers and
millworkers enjoy working with their hands - cutting, shaping, and assembling wood
products such as moldings, panels, and furniture. They also work with other materials such
as metal, plastics, and glass to create store fixtures and exhibits.
If you like to work with machine tools and attention to detail is your strength,
you might consider becoming a millwright. They install and perform maintenance on
machinery such as conveyor systems and generators. This field requires interpreting
blueprints and then drilling, welding, and bolting to precise instructions, sometimes
detailed to within a thousandth of an inch.
Interior Systems Carpenter
A skilled technician is required to install the factory-produced systems and
construction materials in commercial and public buildings. Such items as acoustical
ceilings, raised floors, wall partitions, and office furniture may be partially assembled
at the factory, but it takes a skilled assembler to know what goes where and how to put it
together so it stays that way.
successful students are choosing to enter the construction
apprenticeship programs to earn journeyman status.
