A furniture carpenter is known as a carpenter in the industry, although some may initially train as general carpenters and then specialize in building furniture for the home or office. Carpenters create handmade furniture using traditional hand tools and computerized numerical control (CNC) machinery. A carpenter is a person who makes things with wood. You could hire a carpenter to build you a dining table and two long benches.
While structural carpentry deals with jobs at the larger end of the scale, molding or repainting carpentry focuses on the smaller end. A home isn't a home without some personal touches, and if you prefer to avoid Ikea's simple approach to decorating your property, hiring a carpenter to create bespoke furniture can make you stand out.
