Furniture assemblers can work individually or as a team along an assembly line. Furniture manufacturers cut, sand, join and finish wood and other materials to make handmade furniture. For information on other workers who assemble wooden furniture, see the profile on carpenters. Carpenters make a variety of products, such as cabinets and furniture, using wood, veneer and laminate.
They often combine and incorporate different materials into wood. For many, a career in furniture manufacturing seems like a distant dream. Although they are passionate about carpentry and design, many aspiring carpenters don't realize that furniture manufacturing is a viable professional option.
