Many carpenters focus on a particular skill. However, carpenters who work on property refurbishments or new construction need a wide range of carpentry skills and knowledge.

Highly-trained carpenters are able to switch from one type of building (e.g. domestic to commercial) to another and work on a variety of jobs.

Training and experience is essential for carpenters to acquire the necessary skills and knowledge they need to competently work and conform to a good standard of woodwork.
