"It is something refreshing and new and a combination of all my interests: art and creating things."

"I joined the cabinetry program because I one day discovered woodworking and I just loved it. What I love most about the program is how much it teaches you new things and really engages you in new skills. It also allows for your creativity to flow while you learn, grow, and improve your skills."
