What does it take to be one of the best carpenters?
In the UK, carpenters are normally qualified in the past with City & Guilds qualifications and more recently NVQ. But more importantly, they are trained for a number of years from skilled tradesmen.
During hands-on training time, students can acquire the necessary timber preparation, knowledge and woodworking technical skills for their future carpentry career, for instance, proper use of various tools, roof framing, or furniture finishing.
Quality carpenters must be good at basic math to do their jobs well. They need to be able to read and understand technical drawings and instructions. Making calculations of measurements and angles from complex roofs to bespoke kitchens/joinery.
A problem-solving Carpenter makes a project. Unfortunately, a building site doesn't always run smoothly and quite often needs a problem solver on the team to keep things moving. This is where the Carpenter is paramount, as mentioned above because the Carpenter has an active involvement in all stages of the project.
