Local woodworkers/cabinetmakers?

So Facebook seems to be flooded with farmhouse furniture makers, which I have a few pieces of, but I'm in need of a couple dovetailed boxes and not looking to pay shipping on something I could easily pick up locally. Does anyone know of a woodworker able to make a couple of dovetailed boxes out of 3/4" material? Thanks!

Becoming a Cabinetmaker In Alberta

So I'm thinking about changing up my career path.

Currently working in media and my hours/pay are less than desirable and I want something that makes me a little more cash and gives me consistency. I've always been curious about Cabinet making, and was wondering if someone could provide some context as to what the industry in Alberta is like before I leave my current job to pursue that.

I've been told it might be a good idea to get some part time work to see what the industry is like before leaving my current job, but most places just seem to be interested in full time hires, which makes sense.

I'm 28 if that information matters.

Thanks!

Experienced Carpenter / Cabinetmaker Needed

2 Cabinet Girls is a fast-growing, small business based out of Apex, North Carolina. We’re always on the lookout for great people to join our non-smoking, non-vaping, non-chewing crew.

Although we’re in the cabinet painting business and need an experienced carpenter who is dependable and reliable. You will have a chance to do lots of different projects, but often it will revolve around trim work. Wrapping kitchen islands, trimming out cabinets with crown molding, beadboard, shiplap, board and batten, wainscoting, and floating shelves.

Although there is also an opportunity for additional carpentry work, the majority of your work will be interior trim work. That means your attention to detail has to be well above average. Most times there will be no other workers coming behind you, so your joints need to be tight and flawless.

Find out more by visiting our website where this position is posted, as well as an installer position, painter positions and more.

Starting as a cabinetmaker’s assistant in a few days: what should I expect?

I’ve worked in hospitality my whole life and decided to apply for this job on a whim. I don’t have any experience in construction or building much of anything, really. I just appreciate the art that goes into custom furniture and finish carpentry and I’m really excited to learn.

Apparently the dude makes his own cabinets in a small shop and then installs cabinets (made by another company) for contractors around town.

He was very vague about what my role is exactly apart from the fact that I’m helping with building and install. I’m not even sure what sort of tools I’ll be using or what a typical day looks like.

I’m sure the position looks radically different for each company, but maybe someone has experience they can share to give me a rough idea of what it might look like. Cheers guys

Red Seal Cabinetmaker Exam

Hello,

I grew up in the US and did 10 years of cabinetmaking, moved to Canada and now I want to take Red Seal exam for cabinetmaker. All the websites, including this one, suggest reading the NOA for cabinetmaking. And I understand that I need to know all the sub-tasks. But lets say I don't know a few of them, where/what can I study to learn that information? If a sub task says, "should know..." but I don't, where can I read about this? The practice exam is only 20 questions, I'm looking for a book or guide that can help me better prepare.

Starting work as a cabinetmaker’s right hand tomorrow. Advice?

I’ve worked in home construction doing concrete/foundation type work and am trying to expand my skills to get more into woodworking. I had a cabinetmaker/ installer hire me as his helper and I was upfront with him that I’ve only been working in construction for just over a year, and haven’t gone to college but I have picked up structural knowledge, how to use tools, from work experience.

Advice, suggestions? I don’t expect it to be easy but I don’t wanna blank on what I do know due to intimidation, nerves, all that shit. I want to learn as much as I can but also be an asset to him... which is tough. I don’t know, being a young woman getting into this industry is exciting, slightly daunting, I know the trades are getting more and more expansive but some biases from coworkers , clients , etc. remain, just what I’ve noticed on job sites during my limited time in the industry.

I’ve got the issue of nerves while someone watches me work, when no ones looking I seem to nail things spot on but I guess that’s just the way things go . Ultimately I’m looking forward to this and just going to try and balance confidence with patience and diligence and a willingness to learn.

I’d appreciate any advice you people have to offerπŸ’ͺ🏼.

Looking for guidance to become a cabinetmaker

I'm looking to get into cabinetmaking and I'm very new to this world. I'm in BC, Canada. Sorry if my questions are too simple but I'm lost. Do I enroll in a program at an institution to get started and then find a company to do the apprenticeship? It seems like it is possible to have a company sponsor you as well? How do you find someone who wants to do that if you don't have experience? All the job postings I've seen for apprentices want two years experience but on one of the websites it says you can find a sponsor and I'm just confused and overwhelmed. Thanks for any help!

Professional cabinetmakers - do you just build or also do the onsite install?

For those of you that are doing this professionally, I'm wondering if you primarily work with GCs that do the install or if you also go onsite and install? I'm mostly doing specialty stuff right now (it's a long story) but might tool up to offer residential cabinetry. I've never been a fan of finish carpentry though, mostly because there's no such thing as a right angle inside a house.

Took advice from this sub to check out local mill/cabinetmaker for scraps - reasonable success!

They keep a dumpster outside for people to pick through. When I got there, it was almost entirely little pieces of cabinet grade plywood, but then one of the guys came out to tell me he was about to drop in a bunch of oak.

It was all scrap from flooring, so was cut with grooves in the bottom but should be good to play with.

Could have taken a TON, but a lot of people around here heat their houses with wood furnaces and I expect they come here for fuel, so I didn't want to be greedy.

I'll make a point of checking it out from time to time. Hopefully can score some more prize wood like walnut, etc.

Advice for a new Cabinetmaker Assistant?

Hello r/woodworking!

I hope this finds you safe, healthy and in good spirits at home during this crazy time in our world.

Please forgive me if this is the wrong place to post this, as this is my first post on reddit.

I am 16 and I recently got my first job at a local cabinet shop specializing in high end custom cabinets and millwork. Their work is top notch, as I have seen their work. They have a 33,000 square feet production space with around 30 machines. I start there in two weeks. Due to labor laws, The Shop Foreman said that I would mainly be working with the moulding machine operator to inspect wood that has been processed to make face frames. He also said that I would be working to help sand wood with their pneumatic sanders for finishing. I will also help out with cleaning their shop, as a clean shop is a safe shop. They require steel toed boots, so I picked up a pair from Thorogood. We start early! The shop opens at 6:30, and closes at 5:15. I'd be working a ten hour day. That first week will suck, but they even offered to pay me, so that's great!

Is there anything that I should know before starting with them? I have experience in a shop environment, but nothing of this caliber. Our school shop has a small router, a Sawstop, chop saw, Bridgeport, small lathe, horizontal and vertical band saw and a sheet metal brake and shear. The shop that I will work at has a MTH machine, three WEINIG Powermat 1500s, two WEINIG UniRip saws, a Homag Optimat KAL Edgebander, two old Powermatic table saws, a MARTIN Sliding Table saw, a MARTIN Planer as well as an older Striebig panel saw, and other machinery that I didn't see on my brief shop tour. I think that just being there will allow me to learn a lot, and I cannot wait until my first day at work!

Do any of you have any tips for someone with woodworking experience that is just starting to get into it professionally? I want to do my best here, and I want to help out the company as they have been very nice to accommodate me. Is there anything that I should know? Is there anything that you wish you knew as you joined the industry? If I have a concern about something, how would I bring it up? Is there anything that I should know about the industry? What are some signs of a well run cabinet shop? Also, is WEINIG machinery good? How can I be most useful in the shop? Lastly, are there any tools that I should have that are good to have or that would make my life easier?

Thank you so much for your expertise here

Interested in cabinetmakers union

Hi all!

I dont see many cabinetmakers posts on here. So I wanted to see how many of you there are lol.

I was supposed to take the test this weekend but it got postponed due to COVID19.

I'm still definitely taking it. I've talked to some male cabinetmakers and I know a lot of carpenters, but I'm looking for some female cabinetmakers I can talk to to get a feel of the trade.

I'm 4'11 and 97 lbs. I was told this shouldnt be a problem but I'm still worried. I'm a hard worker but I know my limits. I just dont want to constantly ask people to have to reach things (I guess it's more of a height issue than physical "strength").

Even at my barista jobs I hated asking people for help. I should probably just carry a stool with me everywhere I go lol.

So any female cabinetmakers on here? And short people- how did you overcome the asking for help situation?

Thanks!
