A CARPERNTER JOB AND RESPONSIBILITIES
Not all carpenters are assigned the same tasks. A carpenter's responsibilites vary depending on the size of the job and the carpenter's experience level. Carpenters use blueprints or instructions from their foreman to do the layout, which involves measuring and marking lumber and other materials. They cut and shape wood, plastic, drywall or fiberglass using tools such as saws, sanders, drills and chisels. The building is constructed by joining the materials with fasteners such as nails, screws, adhesives or staples. Fasteners are often considered the most important part of construction, since they hold the building together. Carpenters check their work by using levels, rules, framing squares and surveying equipment to make sure the building is level and done accurately.
