Speaking of woodworking, even without cabinet building knowledge and techniques, there is a point related to cabinet making skills that everyone should know. The cabinet maker is supposed to know the installation process from A to Z, and only then build the product. This ensures you will have a beautiful outcome.

The Cabinet Making Finishing Skills are Most Visible

Time to talk about finishing. Most woodworkers will honestly ignore issues of finishing… they count themselves as steps above other cabinetmakers, and make "finishing parts and components" sound like novice skills. But there are many grades of finish work in the actual surface finish of cabinetry. A fine furniture grade finish, especially one using glaze or distressing, takes both skill and artistry.

Multistep kitchen parts under light reflection

Multi-step, custom finishes for kitchen parts under light reflection. What was used for this process? Stain, glaze, final clear coat, one right hand, and Sherwin-Williams wood finishing product.

We personally don't think any classes that you may take (even college courses!) will give you the skills to count yourself as a "Pro." If you don’t pay careful attention to all aspects of the job, you may lose the value after all the hard and creative work you have done. We recommend you leave certain work to the pros with skill and experience. It saves money in the long run.

And what about the heavily imported product some people are buying? No sign of quality exists! We can only hope more people educate themselves about what makes quality cabinetry, as we have tried to do for you here.
