Hyde Carpentry and Joinery

Joinery Hyde

Now, many of you in Hyde might perhaps be a bit mystified concerning the meaning of the term "carpentry and joinery" or "carpenters and joiners", and to be fair those terms are a little misleading. In fact I have often heard somebody ask "what precisely are the differences between a carpenter and a joiner?" and certainly there are often substantial differences. Even though once in a while you will encounter a tradesman in Hyde who is truly a "carpenter and joiner", usually he'll be one or the other. So precisely what is the difference between a carpenter and joiner? Well a quick answer may be that a joiner struts his stuff in a workshop, while a carpenter generally works on site, by way of example, a joiner builds a window frame in his joinery workshop employing machinery, tools and jigs, whilst a carpenter will fit the window frame into the building on site. Each sort of craftsman understands some of the others techniques although would probably not be able to swap places without doing some extra training. To add even more confusion, young adults wanting to get a carpentry apprenticeship in Hyde, will need to sit a City and Guilds exam in "Carpentry and Joinery" but will in fact be employed as either a carpenter or joiner ie working either in a joinery works or out on a building site.
