Wooden Creativity: Learn from These 3 Resources and Become a Professional Carpenter

by Tom Grant on May 18, 2018

Do you have the conviction that you can work wonders with your hands?  Have you been dreaming of creating magnificent structures from wood? Would you love to come up with the best designs that can feature in a real home or business premise? If so then pursuing a career in carpentry may draw you nearer to your dreams, and soon you may be professional enough run you shop and acquire carpenter insurance.

Become a professional carpenter with these three simple steps.

1-Do your research— choose a field of specialization

Carpentry, like other industries, is an extensive jargon. You need to revisit the internet to for the full range of areas in woodworking, or you risk landing in an occupation that doesn’t match your dreams.

You could choose any of these occupations:

•    A finish carpenter or simply a joiner— specializes in finish carpentry. Things like cabinetry, model building, parquetry, joinery, making furniture, fine woodworking, instrument making, any other carpentry that requires exact joints and minimal margins of error.

•    A trim carpenter – specializes in trim and molding like door and window casings, baseboard, and other forms of ornamental work.

•    A cabinetmaker— specializes in fine, detailed work. He makes cabinets, dressers, wardrobes, storage chests, and storage furniture

•    A shipwright— builds ships on wood.

•    A scenic carpenter— sets up and dismantles temporary scenes using wood in film-making, TV, and theater.

 

This is not all; there’s much more if you haven’t found your field of interest in this short list.

2-Study and Start Apprenticeship

After you’ve discovered what you want interest is, consider starting your apprenticeship. Carpentry isn’t a skill you can master overnight. Rather, it is an industry that requires dedication to both study and hands-on training.

Once you excel in your course, you can start on an apprenticeship with a construction firm or a carpenter. Most business owners will require specific education qualifications, but most of them will absorb you as an apprentice if you’ve completed a course with a reputable institution.

Apprenticeships offer hands-on job training in a manner that your classrooms cannot. You’ll see what makes an expert carpenter’s day learn trends in carpentry from you teacher.

You’ll also get acquainted with the commercial aspect of carpentry— how to handle customers, communication skills and much more. Apprenticeship lasts four years or less, depending on how you agree with your employer.   

3-Acquire certifications

It is important to gain voluntary National certifications from leading organizations that prove your proficiency in certain skill sets to enhance career prospects. For instance, The National Alliance of the Remodeling Industry offers the Certified Lead Carpenter documentation for the qualified carpenter who wishes to lead projects.

To get this certification, you must have spent five years working in the remodeling industry, and not less than two years as a lead carpenter who adheres to codes of ethics and standard practices. You must also complete a half-day written test; and pay a stipulated fee.

There are many other certifications showing competence in different fields of carpentry. It is wise to acquire these certifications because they add value to your job portfolio.
