What is carpentry?

Carpentry is one of the oldest skilled trades. Built on the basics of building and shaping wood, the history of carpentry has been traced back to 8000BC when stone axes were used to construct shelters.

Carpenters play an important part in all aspects of building work from foundation to roof and all that’s in between.
