Life after Study
Cabinetmakers make, repair or install furniture (both free-standing and fixed) using solid timber, flat-panel or timber-based products and a wide range of laminates and other materials.
Furniture polishers polish timber furniture and musical instruments by hand or machine to give them a protective and attractive finish. They also apply polyurethane-based finishes for flat panel products, such as kitchen doors and panels.
Timber and composite machinists set up, operate and maintain woodworking machines, which they use to cut, plane, shape and sand timber and composite materials to a required shape and size. Crafted timber and composite parts are then assembled to make a variety of furniture items and building components, such as tables, desks, chairs, beds, cabinets, boxes, window frames, veranda posts, balusters and flag poles.
