The apprenticeship Joinery Technician is offered in Austria with a focus on planning and production. This four-year apprenticeship closes the gap between the three-year carpentry apprenticeship and school- or university-based technician training. schmidinger möbelbau successfully trains apprentices in the field of “Joinery Technology – Production CNC” since many years. “Chair Kurt” by Peter Eberle (schmidinger möbelbau) and Victor Ciola (Tischlerei Andreas Flatz) was created as a CNC projectwork for the completion of their apprenticeship. Despite challenging specifications, Eberle and Ciola succeeded in creating a brilliant and technically advanced design. The chair was made as a variant in American walnut as well as a variant in elm.
