Canadian Carpenter


Hello all,

It's strange to introduce myself as I've been reading this forum for nearly a decade and feel a part of it already.

I'm Carpenter by trade from Canada, working for a builder. I do and enjoy everything from dirt work to painting but working with wood is where I spend most of my time, both framing and finishing.

I've been in this line of work for about 14 years and hope that I'm welcome to post and interact here as I think it will be very beneficial.

Thanks!

Welcome to CT.

I had the same feeling when I joined.
I had been reading so many posts from longtime members, I felt I'd known them for a long time.

Re: Canadian Carpenter


Hah! Yes same here. I should have said that originally, it seems most people on here talk about the area they are in versus the city. My current job takes me an hour or two out of town once in a while.
