Cabinet Maker (Joiner)

Cabinet Makers (Joiners) build, repair and re-style wooden furniture, cabinets, fixtures and other products. There are many similarities with the carpentry trade, however joinery tends to be more specialized. Using architectural drawings, Joiners often operate woodworking machines to cut and form parts, which they then assemble into finished products. Some specialize in custom-made furniture. Preparation of cost estimates is often a key skill and responsibility. Increasingly, Joiners are tasked with installing pre-manufactured cabinets and fixtures.

A Joiner is designated as a Cabinetmaker under the Interprovincial Standards Red Seal program.
