Carpenters at a Glance

Carpenters play a vital role in nearly every construction project by building the framework for the structure. Concrete forms, walls, windows, doors, and roofs are built for new and remodeled homes, buildings, and large industrial projects. Carpenters must have exceptional hand-eye coordination and physical stamina. An apprenticeship or technical school education is often required.
