Carpenters have always been an important part of the construction trade. When it comes to building a house, the services carpenters provide are indispensable. They are needed for the framework of walls, roofs and partitions.
Carpenters also make and install window frames, door frames and kitchen cabinets as well as performing other, smaller projects on a construction site.
The apprenticeship carpenters have to go through is thorough and involves numerous hours of on-the-job training and several exams. Within the trade there are different kinds of carpenters such as Site Carpenters, Shop Fitters and Joiners, just to name a few.
Joinery has been a skill for a very long time. A joiner is a specialist in cutting and fitting joints in wood. Items that a joiner might make include shelves, tables, chairs, interior doors and exterior doors. Joiners have to use many different types of joints in the building of such items. Some will be formed to fit together like “teeth”, others like dovetails or grooves and channels.
This is very intricate work and requires a great eye for detail and precision workmanship. Before the Industrial Revolution introduced mass production, joiners were the main producers of all furniture. Nowadays joiners combine the use of traditional tools and techniques with the use of modern machines which gives them the opportunity to work in a wide variety of carpentry projects. Joiners work closely with other tradesmen, especially carpenters and plasterers.
