Furniture maker

June 13, 2017, 11:34 a.m.

Furniture makers make or restore furniture like chairs, tables and display cabinets.Furniture makers design and craft individual pieces of furniture and storage cabinets such as chairs, tables, dressers and wardrobes. They may also restore antique items of furniture.

Furniture is an essential part of our daily lives. It is what we sit on, eat and work from, where we store our clothes and possessions and where we sleep.

The salary for a furniture maker depends vastly on the amount of work he is able to produce, his level of skill and his reputation.

 

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA

Although entry without a degree may be possible through an apprenticeship, or by starting work straight from school as a trainee, young furniture designers increasingly have a relevant degree, BTEC or HND in a furniture-related subject such as:

•    furniture design
•    furniture design and making
•    product and furniture design.
Courses with a mix of practical skills and creative design may be particularly useful.
Other relevant degree subjects include:
•    art and design, 3D design or spatial design
•    ceramics and glass
•    furniture technology
•    product design.

Many employers consider potential to be just as important as experience, so it is essential that you demonstrate a working interest in the design field.
 
Visit design exhibitions, read design journals and keep up to date with new software and technology in the sector.
 
It's also important to produce your own experimental work and enter competitions and shows to get your work noticed.
 

SKILL REQUIREMENTS

 

You will need to show:
•    creative and practical ability
•    drawing skills and strong visual awareness
•    manual dexterity and good hand-eye coordination
•    an understanding of computer-aided design (CAD) and other technological advances
•    knowledge of industrial processes and techniques, safety issues and specialist fields or materials
•    communication skills
•    commercial focus
•    self-motivation, self-discipline and persistence
•    flexibility and adaptability
•    the ability to work to deadlines
•    collaborative skills, particularly if working in a multidisciplinary practice
•    a desire to keep up to date with market trends and new ideas
•    business and marketing skills, for those thinking of self-employment.

 

JOB MARKET

 

Employment of furniture makers is projected to show little or no change from 2014 to 2024. Those who have advanced skills, including the ability to use computer-controlled machinery, should have the best job opportunities in manufacturing industries.
