GENERAL CARPENTER

Carpenters construct and repair building frameworks and structures such as stairways, doorframes, partitions, and rafters made from wood and other materials. They also may install kitchen cabinets, siding, and drywall, plumbing, electrical, hardware and fixtures.

Job Duties

Carpenters typically do the following:

• Follow plans to meet the needs of clients

• Install structures and fixtures, such as windows, molding and doors

• Measure, cut, or shape wood, plastic, and other materials

• Construct building frameworks, including walls, floors, and doorframes

• Help erect, level, and install building framework with the aid of rigging hardware

• Inspect and replace damaged framework or other structures and fixtures

• Instruct and direct laborers and other construction helpers

• Must maintain OSHA 10 certificate

Carpenters are one of the most versatile construction occupations, with workers usually doing many different tasks. For example, some carpenters insulate office buildings; others install drywall or kitchen cabinets in homes. Some carpenters erect shoring and scaffolding for buildings.

Carpenters use many different hand and power tools to cut and shape wood, plastic, fiberglass, or drywall. They commonly use hand tools, including squares, levels, and chisels, as well as many power tools, such as sanders, circular saws, nail guns, and welding machines. Carpenters fasten materials together with nails, screws, staples, and adhesives, and do a final check of their work to ensure accuracy. They use a tape measure on nearly every project because proper measuring increases productivity, reduces waste, and ensures that the pieces being cut are the proper size.
