For my graduation project I have chosen to do research on the career of carpentry This career has interested me for many years My uncle is a carpenter contractor so I used to see him do his work and wanted to do something like that when I got older In my paper I have broken it down to sections The heading will tell you what I will be talking about in the next sectionCarpenters are involved in many different kinds of construction activity They cut fit and assemble wood and other materials in the construction of buildings highways bridges docks industrial plants boats and many other structures Carpenters duties vary by type of employer Builders increasingly are using specialty trade contractors who in turn hire carpenters who specialize in just one or two activities Some of these activities are setting forms for concrete construction erecting scaffolding or doing finishing work such as installing interior and exterior trim However a carpenter directly employed by a general building contractor often must perform a variety of the tasks associated with new construction such as framing walls and partitions putting in doors and windows building stairs laying hardwood floors and hanging kitchen cabinetsEach carpentry task is somewhat different but most involve the same basic steps Working from blueprints or instructions from supervisors carpenters first do the layoutmeasuring marking and arranging materials They cut and shape wood plastic fiberglass or drywall using hand and power tools such as chisels planes saws drills and sanders They then join the materials with nails screws staples or adhesives In the final step carpenters check the accuracy of their work with levels rules plumb bobs and framing squares and make any necessary adjustments When working with prefabricated components such as stairs or wall panels the carpenters task is somewhat simpler than above because it does not require as much layout work or the cutting and assembly of as many pieces Prefabricated components are designed
