More about Joinery

Working from drawings, the joiner’s task is to measure and cut joints then assemble, install, and finish to a high standard.

They are mostly workshop based, but some projects will take place on building sites or in the homes of customers.

Joinery is closely associated with cabinetmaking and carpentry, and other areas of the construction industry.
