  21. 21. 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
  22. 22. “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
