Joinery

A building isn't all about bricks and mortar. Perhaps you have walked into a shop or store and wondered where all the shelves, counters and general fittings were made. Timber is an essential part of just about every structure, and it is a joiner's job to prepare it and perhaps put it into place. It's a skilled job that utilises special tools, and often involves many different kinds of wood. Components such as windows, doors and stairs are usually made by the joiner in a workshop and transported to the site for installation. You may enjoy being a joiner if you are good with your hands and making things, enjoy working in a team and are precise and accurate in your work.
