Joinery is closely associated with cabinet making and carpentry. Working from drawings, the joiner produces items such as doors, windows, stairs, tables, and bookshelves.
The joiner is usually based in a workshop because the formation of various joints requires specialist machinery, but sometimes undertakes installations in the homes of customers and on building sites. They will produce and interpret drawings, set out and measure, cut, form joints, assemble, install and finish to a high standard.
For the talented joiner there are many commercial, residential and international opportunities; the diversity of skills and opportunities associated with joinery is therefore likely to expand.
