Carpenters and joiners

Carpenters and joiners are skilled craftsmen responsible for constructing buildings, furniture and other objects.

Carpenters work primarily with timber and their role requires plenty of manual labour. Skills are picked up over the years through both experience and study and they’re used by homeowners, businesses, schools, farms and more, for a number of reasons.

Joiners also work in the wood construction industry and are seen as a type of carpenter, responsible for cutting and fitting wood without the need for nails, screws and metal fasteners.

You could require the services of a joiner for many different needs, but they’re mostly associated with interior decorating such as doors, windows, stairs, tables and bookshelves.
