Job Requirements:

  • Detail oriented. Carpenters perform many tasks that are important in the overall building process. Making precise measurements, for example, may reduce gaps between windows and frames, limiting any leaks around the window.
  • Manual dexterity. Carpenters use many tools and need hand-eye coordination to avoid injury. Striking the head of a nail, for example, is crucial to not damaging wood.
  • Math Skills. Because carpenters use basic math skills every day, they need to be able to calculate volume and measure materials to be cut.
  • Physical stamina. Carpenters need physical endurance. They often lift heavy tools and materials while standing, climbing or bending for long periods.
  • Physical strength. Many of the tools and materials that carpenters use are heavy. For example, plywood sheets can weigh 50 to 100 pounds.
  • Problem-solving skills. Because all construction jobs vary, carpenters must adjust project plans accordingly. For example, they may have to use wedges to level cabinets in homes that have settled and are sloping slightly.
