Modern Cabinetmaking is a comprehensive text that focuses on the techniques used by custom cabinetmakers and home woodworkers. While still providing classic coverage, the text has been thoroughly revised to include the latest in technology, materials, and processes such as CNC, 32mm System construction, ready-to-assemble casework, and grinding and sharpening. This edition includes many new photos and diagrams showing updated technology and techniques. A chapter on employment introduces students to the careers related to cabinetmaking skills, and a chapter discussing industrial organizations helps students learn how to get more involved.
The text and workbook correlate to Woodwork Career Alliance standards, ensuring that students gain the skills they need to be successful in industry.
Content is organized in a logical sequence, teaching students the design and construction process in a step-by-step manner.
Three new chapters have been added for this edition—Cabinetmaking Industry Overview, CNC Machinery, and Sharpening—to support student learning of the latest standards, technology, and techniques.
