Re: What Construction Carpenter Study?


I'm not a 100% sure I understand what you are asking.
As far as what us carpenters study, that is a broad topic. There are many sources for info. I learned mostly from older carpenters and from reading books and info that came with framing squares and speed squares. Back in the day you actually got a little book with a speed square.
I suppose some have gone to trade schools to learn some aspects of being a carpenter,
I think it's all how much you want to know.
I have seen carpenters that have been in the business for years that couldn't build a set of stairs properly or figure out rafters. Some are born to lead and some are born to follow.
With the net today it's virtually possible to learn whatever you want.
Good luck!

Sounds like the OP is asking what do other carpenters work on? stair building, framing, windows, doors, trim, cabinetry... around my area it seems anyone will call themselves a carpter/contractor. The proof is in your work

Re: What Construction Carpenter Study?


I live on the North west coast (USA). I replace lots of windows and doors, but also rebuild decks, perimeter walls, framing(usually with remodeling). Things tend to get a little soggy around here and everyone's building envelope needs help now and then. I rebuild/refinish furniture, but that's more of a hobby. There are guys all over here that pretend to be painters, carpenters. etc. They never last long.
