This is a “Live Work” program.
Cabinetmakers work in residential and commercial settings, where they use creative skills in design and analytical skills to interpret drawings and layouts. Tasks include cutting, assembling, finish-sanding, staining and sealing wood cabinets. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, cabinetmakers earned an average of $30,530 in 2016. Though companies are more likely to hire employees who are computer savvy, cabinet makers who are expert woodworkers will continue to have good job opportunities.
