  • 26. Apprenticeship Under Dennis Zongker “ In most parts of Europe, by law around 1600 to 1800, a boy approximately 9 years old was chosen by family trade to become a cabinetmaker. It required at least eight years of mandatory education. The training consisted of a high degree of technical training that would ensure a high standard of work.” By, Dennis Zongker
  • 27. “ First an apprentice spent several years in the workshop of a master furniture maker, followed by at least as many years as a journeyman. In order to become a master, a journeyman had to prove his competence. A young man around 22 to 24 years of age could be a master of his trade, and could be commissioned for cabinet making jobs.” “ All of this training, one could see how cabinet making, furniture making, carving, joinery, marquetry and many other related skills, could reach such a high standard of technical skill. In today’s world one could be called an Artist. While yesterdays Cabinet Maker was considered a tradesman.” By, Dennis Zongker
