Carpentry-Cabinetmaking Program Overview

  • Request work from Diman's Carpentry-Cabinetmaking Program

    Students entering in the Carpentry - Cabinetmaking Program are instructed in the safe and proper use of hand tools, portable power tools, and stationary power equipment. They are also instructed in layout, design, and various machining methods. These skills are then used to fabricate progressively-more-difficult projects, ultimately leading to the introduction of Computerized Numerical Controlled (C.N.C.) Training in the state-of-the-art multi-cam routers and the S.C.M.I. point-to-point machining center.

    A portion of this program deals with the building of a house. Junior and senior students construct a residential home in one of our member communities. Students are instructed in rough framing techniques, shingling, exterior finish, interior finish, as well as built-in cabinets and the installation of custom cabinetwork.

    The Carpentry-Cabinetmaking Program provides students with the skills necessary to compete in today's highly technical and demanding building trade industry.
