What does a cabinetmaker actually do?

Before the art of industrial design, cabinetmakers were responsible for the entire creation process of a piece of furniture, from its initial conception to its shape and colour all the way to final production.

What is the difference between a carpenter and a cabinetmaker?
While both professions master the art of working with wood, it is the cabinetmaker who goes one step further by focusing on the finer details of the wood and what one can do with it. It is this attention to detail that distinguishes them from carpenters. Carpenters concentrate on much larger projects, such as framing a house, building a deck etc., while cabinetmakers focus on detail work, more complex building materials and the construction of furniture pieces and cabinets used within a house.

Cabinetmakers work with a vast array of tools like a good saw table, drum sander, and dust extraction system. They also carry with them a selection of hand tools like laminate trimmers, cordless drills, finish staplers and jigsaws. They work with wood glue, nails, screws, dowels and other fasteners to create finished furniture and cabinets.

Measuring the client's interior space accurately is imperative, whether it's for making kitchen cabinets that fit perfectly within the space available, or making a piece of furniture with exact proportions. Creating drawings for the client of what the finished piece will look like is necessary in order for the client to visualize and proceed with the project. Before starting any project though, it is necessary for the cabinetmaker to prepare a list of what project materials, tools and type of wood that he/she will need. This is something that will not only save a cabinetmaker's time, but will help to keep the project within budget for the client.
