Overview

Carpenters are key members of the construction industry. They are responsible for all the wooden structures involved in building projects, from installing staircases and building roofs to fitting windows and door-frames. Carpentry is a precision skill which requires accuracy in measuring and cutting so that everything fits into the construction project smoothly and no wood is wasted. Using power and hand tools, a carpenter utilises ancient and modern techniques to work with wood and to execute perfectly the process of converting raw wood into finished products.
