Humber’s Cabinet Making certificate program provides you with the knowledge and skills to construct cabinets and fine furniture using both traditional recognized trade practices, as well as computer-based technologies. You’ll complete a series of woodworking projects that explore various types of joinery and construction techniques using hand tools, portable power tools, and stationary machines. Time management skills and the ability to work to a deadline are developed throughout the program.
Woodworking classes also focus on verbal and written communication, critical thinking, problem solving, mathematics and interpersonal/ teamwork skills.
By the end of the program, you will be able to produce shop drawings, calculate material lists, operate woodworking machinery safely and also assemble and apply a finish to basic cabinetry or furniture. We also stress the safe operation of common stationary machines and introduce basic manufacturing processes.
Our advisory committee of industry professionals meet annually to review our curriculum and ensure that our students are receiving relevant training to prepare them for work in a range of woodworking-related fields.
Our graduates may find employment in a number of woodworking areas including store fixtures construction, architectural millwork, furniture construction or in the kitchen cabinet industry. Because of our comprehensive program, there has been continuing interest in our graduates from employers over the past number of years.
Students spend the majority of their time in our 10,000-square-foot woodworking lab, located at The Humber Centre for Trades & Technology (humber.ca/maps). Within the lab there are bench areas for assembly and bench work. We also utilize a kitchen cabinet installation area. All major industrial woodworking machines are available for student use, as well as a vacuum pressing area for curved forms and veneering, a hydraulic veneer press, three computer numerical control (CNC) routers, a CNC lathe, and a CNC dovetailer. A dedicated electronic classroom is available for lectures.
