A carpenter mainly builds, installs and repairs wooden parts, such as frames, doors, (roof) constructions. A carpenter works with various hand and electrical tools.

Sometimes a carpenter also designs a construction himself or has it made. You often work as a carpenter on the basis of a drawing or design by someone else. You can work on a construction site where new homes or commercial buildings are being built. But you can also work as a carpenter who makes, installs or repairs cabinets, sheds and other objects (customized) on behalf of companies or private individuals.

The duties of a carpenter are:

  • Read and work from a drawing
  • Handling hand and power tools
  • Assembly of wooden constructions, such as window frames, walls, roofs.
  • Assembling wooden elements
  • Repairing old/damaged woodwork
