Cabinetmakers basically design and construct wood furniture. They work with solid wood or wood laminates. They may also use related materials, such as plywood or fibreglass. Before beginning any project, cabinetmakers study drawings of the items to be built or produce their own plans. Next, they shape the wood, using different tools such as saws, planers, drills, sanders and knives. Cabinetmakers also colour and texture wood with stains, varnishes or wax. Cabinetmakers are employed primarily by mould-making companies, woodworking and cabinetmaking shops, and furniture manufacturers. They may also start their own businesses and specialize in the reproduction of high-quality or antique-looking furniture, which is a growing field.
