They work with power and hand tools to build wood framing for houses, roofs, stairs, decks and sheaths, and forms for concrete. Carpenters install doors, windows and handrails, build cabinets and counter tops. Carpenters perform interior and exterior finish work. They read blueprints, measure accurately and calculate dimensions.

Apprenticeship applicants must be at least 18 years of age, or 17 with proof of high school graduation or general education development (GED) equivalent.
