Humber’s Cabinet Making certificate program, located at the Humber Centre for Trades & Technology, provides you with the knowledge and skills to construct and install basic cabinets, as well as build traditional furniture using recognized trade practices. By completing a series of woodworking projects, you will explore various types of joinery and construction techniques using hand tools, portable power tools, stationary machines, as well as computer-based technologies. Time management skills and the ability to work to a deadline are developed and stressed throughout the program.
Graduates of the program will be able to produce shop drawings, calculate a list of materials, cut out and assemble basic cabinetry or furniture and also apply a finish. Graduates are able to safely operate most common stationary woodworking machinery, as well as run a number of CNC machines in a limited capacity.Courses

Congratulations to all of the honors students who could make it to the annual "Skilled Trades Honors Breakfast"!
Students spend the majority of their time in our 10,000 square foot woodworking lab, located at The Humber Centre for Trades and Technology. Within the lab there is a large bright bench area for assembly and bench work. We also utilize a kitchen cabinet installation area. All common 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.
Employer interest in our graduates has grown steadily throughout the program’s history. We offer a comprehensive program that provides a solid grounding in woodworking and prepares a student for employment in a wide range of areas including store fixtures, architectural millwork (doors and windows), the kitchen cabinet industry, as well as furniture construction.
