CABINETMAKING & WOOD
Repeated surveys of the woodworking industry have revealed the
number one concern facing the industry for the 21st century is
the lack of skilled and motivated workers. There is a continual
need in the furniture, kitchen cabinet, and architectural millwork
industries for persons possessing the skills and knowledge
required to produce high quality wood products.
MODEL SCHEDULE FOR
CABINETMAKING & WOOD TECHNOLOGY
The Cabinetmaking and Wood Technology program is committed
to continually providing students with the skills and knowledge
required for rewarding jobs in the various woodworking industries.
Based upon the belief that students learn best by working on
projects, this program is strongly project-oriented.

Hence, students will produce several pieces of fine furniture
after which they will further develop and display their skills by
producing an advanced wood project of their choosing. Through
the use of the College's housing project, students will learn to list
and produce all the millwork items required for a residential house.
Additionally, students will design, produce, finish, and install a
complete kitchen. Through the use of lectures, demonstrations and
the above projects, the program faculty feel they can best prepare
students for careers in any of the three major woodworking fields:
fine furniture, architectural millwork, and kitchen cabinetry.
