작업 설명

Humans have been making things out of wood for almost as long as we’ve existed! Wood is abundant, sturdy, and useful for a wide range of things. But it wasn’t until we invented saws and other cutting instruments that woodworking really took off!

Today, we have an array of powered machinery to cut, smooth, and shape wood for furniture, cabinets, and other products. But it takes highly trained Woodworking Machinery Operators to use these types of equipment to craft raw wood into finished pieces or parts.

From band and circular saws to drill presses, lathes, and milling machines, they must be proficient in safe machinery operation techniques to avoid any mishaps while they work! In addition, they have to understand the properties of the wood they’re working on. They frequently collaborate with designers and craftsmen to understand the exact requirements for the items they’re going to produce. 

경력의 보람있는 측면
  • Creating tangible, often artistic wood products
  • Steady work in furniture, construction, and custom woodwork industries
  • Independence to work on pieces at individual workstations

기대와 희생

Woodworking Machinery Operators are relied on to produce products that conform to very specific requirements. Thus their work must be meticulous, even under pressure to meet deadlines.

They have to take into consideration multiple factors, including what types of wood can be used with which types of equipment, and how best to cut or shape the wood.

The working environment can be loud and hazardous, requiring workers to wear protective gear, such as goggles and hearing protection. They must carefully follow safety procedures to avoid injury to themselves or others in the area.

The day-to-day job requires stamina because workers are usually on their feet, often in bent or leaning positions. The repetition can get monotonous after a while, but workers have to keep their focus because of the inherent risks of the job so they don’t get hurt! 

현재 동향

The woodworking industry is increasingly embracing automation and CNC technology, significantly enhancing precision and productivity! CNC routers and lathes are helping to facilitate more complex designs, transforming the sector into a more efficient, versatile field.

Alongside technological advancements, there’s also a growing emphasis on sustainability. Customers have more focus on eco-friendly materials and practices in general, such as buying products made from recycled wood or responsibly sourced timber.

Another trend is thanks to the advancements in software like CAD and CAM, which are not only revolutionizing design and production processes but also streamlining operations.

이 직업에 종사하는 사람들은 어렸을 때 어떤 종류의 일을 즐겼습니까?

기계 관련 직업 분야에 종사하는 사람들은 일반적으로 손으로 작업하는 것을 즐기고 도구와 고정식 중장비를 사용하는 것이 편안합니다. 그들은 고등학교에서 수학 및 컴퓨터 프로그래밍 과정을 즐겼거나 상점 수업에서 프로젝트를 하는 것을 좋아했을 것입니다.

Woodworking Machinery Operators can collaborate with others but don’t mind being on their own for long periods. They might have been very independent growing up and may have always wanted a job where they have some freedom to do their work without a lot of interaction with others.

교육 및 훈련 필요
  • Woodworking Machinery Operators need a high school diploma or equivalent. A college degree is not necessary
  • Workers must have applicable woodworking, carpentry, or construction skills. These can be learned in high school, via vocational courses, apprenticeships, or part-time jobs
  • Some start as helpers or laborers, learning how to safely use hand and power tools before moving on to larger equipment like CNC machines
  • Operators may need to program their CNC machines, so having some knowledge of basic computer applications is useful
  • In addition, certain types of math are commonly used in this profession, such as basic arithmetic, geometry, fractions and decimals, measurement conversions, basic algebra, trigonometry, and proportions and ratios
  • Operators can apply for credentials from the Woodwork Career Alliance of North America such as:
  1. Sawblade Certificate: Focuses on introducing fundamental woodworking skills and safety knowledge
  2. Green Credential: Covers basic woodworking operations and safety practices
  3. Blue Credential: Involves advanced skills and knowledge in woodworking techniques and machinery operation
  4. Red Credential: For demonstrating proficiency in a range of woodworking machinery and techniques
  5. Gold Credential: Represents a high skill level in woodworking, encompassing advanced machinery operation and complex techniques
  6. Diamond Credential: Indicates mastery of woodworking skills and extensive experience in the industry
  • Workers also may benefit from obtaining CNC machine certification via community colleges and directly from machine manufacturers!
  • Safety is an integral part of the job, so an OSHA Safety and Health 
    Fundamentals Certificate or OSHA 10-hour training card can be helpful. Employers can usually explain the details and help workers get signed up!

Note, that many employers in the skilled trades, including machine operations, conduct pre-employment drug tests. This is because the use of machines and tools can be hazardous, so employers and insurance companies want to reduce risks. For apprenticeships, unions may mandate pre-apprenticeship drug tests or random drug tests.
