Do you like working with wood but don't want to be a carpenter?

Cabinetmaking is another great trade pathway where you work with
wood to build beautiful kitchen and bathroom furniture.

Cabinetmaking Apprenticeship

A cabinetmaker uses hand and machine skills to custom build commercial and traditional style furniture and also the manufacture and installation of fitted furniture such as kitchens and bathrooms, movie/theatre fit-outs and high end home theatre fit-outs. Accuracy, attention to detail and a love of working with wood and other material is a cabinetmakers dream. There are a number of skills you will learn as a cabinetmaker including the proper use and operation of power saws and power routers and hand tools such as chisels, planes and wood files. You will learn to read job specifications and drawings and diagrams in order to cut timber to the right measurements. Using glue, dowels, nails and screws you will join parts together to form completed units. Finally, you will learn how to trim and sand joints in preparation towards a finished product.

Cabinetmaking is a four year apprenticeship and you will be required to complete a Certificate III in Cabinet Making nationally recognised qualification.

  • Hot Tips

      • Don't apply for multiple jobs in multiple vocations.  The employer will  be unsure about where your real desire lies and may not even contact you.
      • Use professional email addresses.  Modern and trendy ones that are inappropriate do not sit well with employers.
      • Always maintain eye contact in the interview.  This shows the employer that you are interested and confident in what they have to say.
      • Give yourself plenty of time to get to the interview.  Research the location, do a test run if you have to.  Getting there 15 minutes early is always better than 5 minutes late.
      • Make sure your referees speak highly of you.  There is nothing worse than a bad reference from a recent employer.
      • Have your resume proof read before sending it to an employer.  Spelling mistakes and grammatical errors will not help your cause.
      • Dress well at all times.  Poor presentation gives the employer the impression that your work performance may also be poor.
      • Remember the interview starts before you walk in the door!  Be prepared to be on show the minute you apply for the job.
      • Make sure in your interview that you have good reasons for wanting the job.  Being vague or sketchy is not what employers want to hear.
      • If you are applying for a job, make sure you have voicemail on your phone.  If an employer cannot contact you, then you may miss out!
      • Don't be late for an interview. An employer may think you will be late for work if you can't get to an interview on time!
      • Is your resume up to date?
      • Spelling and grammatical errors on your resume will lead to an instant rejection by the employer!
      • Don't forget to proof read your resume!
      • One word or two word answers in an interview won't get you across the line.
