Common Terms Used By Carpenters

Carpentry is the work that turns a normal slab of wood into something beautiful or functional. Most people understand when a handsaw, drill, or sandpaper is mentioned, but there are many more terms relating to this industry. Below are a few common terms used by carpenters.

  • Apprentice – A person enrolled in a carpenter training program, often offered by the local union. Students learn what is included in the job, such as how to choose wood and construct specific items.
  • Journeyman – A term that can used for either someone who has completed their apprenticeship at the local union or a carpenter who has a lot of experience on the job.
  • Doubler – One of these is constructed by nailing together two or more structural members, such as 4x4s.
  • Crown – The curve of a piece of wood when you look from the edge. This is vital to framing because lumber must be installed crown up.
  • Valley – This is the place that two separate slopes intersect and is commonly used by those who works in roofing.
  • Level – This term refers to someone that is horizontally balanced or even. It is also the name of a common carpentry tool.
  • Plumb – Another term that has two meanings. The first is a piece of equipment consisting of a line with a weight on the bottom that is used to level something on the vertical plane. The other is the state of being vertically level.

    If you're unemployed and looking for a job, you might want to consider becoming a carpenter. These professional wood workers make a living building and constructing objects for their clients, and they can often make quite a bit of money. Become a carpenter takes a long time, though, and you should make the decision to become one likely. You ought to think about it for quite a while. But if you have thought about it a good deal, and you're still certain that you want to become a carpenter, you'll want to start off your career by finding an apprenticeship with a more experienced craftsman. Apprentice carpenters learn the basics of wood working and construction. They learn, for instance, about the tools and equipment of their trade. They'll learn how to use table saws, drills, and other machines. They'll learn how to use sanders - both battery powered and hand operated. They'll learn how to work with nails and screws. They'll even learn how to properly use measure tape. As an apprentice carpenter you'll also learn how to build some basic furniture. You'll learn how to build tables, chairs, and cabinets. You'll also learn how to build and install walls and doors in people's homes and offices. On top of that, you'll learn how to work with brick and other types of masonry. You'll learn quite a bit about your craft, and at the end of your apprenticeship, you can begin applying for jobs of your own. Before you set off on your own, though, you may want to consider join a union. A carpentry union will provide you with all the help and support you'll need to begin your new career!
