Kendal Carpentry and Joinery

Joiners Kendal

Now, some of you in Kendal might be mystified regarding the actual meaning of the term "carpentry and joinery" or "carpenters and joiners", and frankly these terms may be somewhat ambiguous. In fact there have been quite a few occasions when I have heard a householder ask "just what are the differences between a carpenter and a joiner?" and of course there may be notable differences. Whilst at times you may meet a craftsman in Kendal who genuinely is a "carpenter and joiner", in most cases he will be one or the other. So what exactly is the difference? Well a straightforward reply might be that a carpenter does his work on site, whilst a joiner plies his trade in a workshop environment, by way of example, a joiner will put together a window frame in his workshop utilizing machinery, jigs and tools, while a carpenter will fit the window frame into the building on site. Each kind of craftsman understands a little of the others skills but would probably struggle to exchange places without getting additional training. To add even more confusion, teenagers aiming to get carpentry apprenticeships in Kendal, will need to pass a City and Guilds examination in "Carpentry and Joinery" but might actually be employed as either a carpenter or joiner ie working either on a building site or in a joinery works.
