From foundations to finishing, professional carpenters contribute to a variety of jobs throughout a project and are responsible for bringing blueprints to life. They rely on specialized techniques that have evolved over hundreds of years to measure, cut, join, erect, and finish materials for jobs of all sizes. While a sturdy hammer and reliable circular saw are essential parts of every toolbox, modern carpenters also work with computers and tablets to read digital layouts and control advanced equipment like robotic total stations.
