Job Duties, Education And Training, Salary, Pros And Cons, For More InformationVIDEOS

If you're the kind of person who likes to use erector sets or Legos to build fantastic creations, you might want to consider a career in carpentry. Carpenters are mainly responsible for building or repairing wood structures for buildings. They do this by reading and following plans and specifications for the buildings they work on. These are much like blueprints; unless you're trained, they are difficult to read. Carpenters also need to know about things such as a structure's airflow management and insulation techniques.
