This is an article from carpenter’s magazine that is the only publication that highlights the careers of carpenters. Learn the jobs and how to get hired.
Carpenters are among the hardest-working trades in America. Even the top carpenters make less than $40,000 a year and many of them work in small factories in the middle of nowhere. Carpenters work hard, but they are often ignored by employers, which is a double-edged sword. When you’re working in a factory making things and not working for your own company, you are in a bind.
The good news is that as a carpenter you can make money doing what you enjoy. You can find a lot of the same jobs as in other trades: wood working, carpentry, painting, and so on. The bad news is that most carpenters are doing the same kind of work in the same factories and they don’t make much money.
So if you have a passion for woodworking and you think you can make some quick cash doing so, you should definitely think about making a career in it, especially if you have a passion for it. The good news is that there are plenty of opportunities to make a living doing things you like. There are also plenty of opportunities for people that have a passion for the industry as a whole.
One of the biggest advantages that people have over their competitors is the flexibility of working in a lot more than one area of the country. In the past, building a career in the industry meant becoming a factory worker. Today, more and more people are creating their own careers, specializing in areas that they enjoy. If you like woodworking, you should consider becoming a carpenter.
The career field of carpentry is actually pretty broad and spans everything from carpentry work to cabinet making and masonry. Carpenters who specialize in cabinet making tend to make between $40,000 and $60,000 a year and are in the top five percent of carpenter salary earners in the country.
The median annual salary of a carpenter in the United States is $50,000 which puts them in the top percent of the income earners in America. That’s pretty damn good for a field that only takes you a couple years to learn. Because of this, carpenters can usually expect to live for twenty or thirty years.
The median annual salary of a mason is between $40,000 and $50,000. This makes them one of the most highly paid trades in the country. The only trade that comes close to this is electricians, and even then the pay is comparable to that of masons.
Some of the most skilled trades in the country are carpenters. They are the ones who make your house and your kitchen and your bathroom and your living room all beautiful and functional. If youre an electrician or a plumber, the only thing that you can do is connect a light to a light bulb. Thats it. These guys are masters of their crafts, and they make their living doing it.
But what about cabinetmakers? They make everything from wooden tables and chairs to wooden kitchen cabinets and wooden bed frames.
