few programs in high schools related to
what they do, but some of the drafting tal-
ent has come from local technical schools.
Mock Woodworking can match
stains and create special finishes.
Conversion varnish is the main finish.
The company continues to experiment
with water-based finishes.

arrangement. Also here is a Butfering
widebelt sander, Taylor clamp carrier,

The panel processing area includes
a Holzma panel saw, Routech Record
210AL 5 x 12 CNC router with vacuum
table, Morbidelli Author 4305 4 x 10 pod
and rail machining center and an IDM
Idimatic edgebander. A small assembly
area in the back of the shop makes
repeatable fixtures. The company is also
looking at adding a press to do veneer
layup in house.
“The pod and rail is used for cabinet
components. The vacuum table is used
for nested work, radius work and miter-fold. Both have horizontal and vertical
routing, and drilling, cutting and other
machining capability” Mock says.
The main assembly area is the largest
and handles the most custom work. It
includes 10 benches where experienced
master cabinetmakers take cut pieces
from solid wood and panel processing
and do everything else to finish the job,
including assembly and hardware installation. One person may work on a single
job until it is completed.
Mock Woodworking’s finishing
operation can do any kind of paint or
finish, which can be a selling point. They
can match stains and create special
finishes. Conversion varnish is the main
finish, while the company continues to
experiment with water-based finishes.
Automating the finishing process is an
area the company is researching.
