Mass-produced, i.e. quantity-production, furniture is more the result of business expertise and engineering skill than the application of fine craftsmanship, although furniture is and probably always will be a craft-based industry while it continues to use a natural and viable material. The modern factory employs machine- and hand-workers of a variety of types, assemblers, finishers, polishers, upholsterers and inspectors, etc., and, in the narrow sense, expert cabinet-makers might have no place at all in the organization. However, most large concerns keep a nucleus of skilled craftsmen for prototype-work, while all learners and apprentices do, or should receive, training in either wood machining or the basic hand-skills. In effect, therefore, a modern furniture factory which is efficient, well organized, and anxious to maintain a standard of quality is the basic handshop vastly extended, systematized and mechanized, in which the skilled fingers which once held chisels, wielded planes and coaxed satin surfaces from wood have now learned to use machines for precisely similar functions.
