This competition has been designed to reflect the role of a carpenter and the standards that are expected within the construction industry.
A carpenter cuts, fits and assembles wood for building frameworks, doors, windows, flooring, stairs and panelling on both commercial and residential projects. Carpentry is one of the most skilled roles in construction, so excellent working knowledge of wood, its various types and uses is important, as well as knowing how the finished product will fit into a house or building.
