Carpenters and Joiners Stanford-le-Hope

Now, some people in Stanford-le-Hope might be a tad baffled regarding the meaning of the phrase "carpentry and joinery" or "carpenters and joiners", and in all honesty these phrases can be a little ambiguous. In fact there've been numerous times over the years when I've heard people ask "what is the difference between a joiner and carpenter?" and naturally there may be significant differences. Even though now and again you will come across a craftsman in Stanford-le-Hope who truly is a "carpenter and joiner", usually he or she will be either one or the other. So exactly what is the difference? Well a short answer would be that a joiner plies his trade in a workshop environment, whilst a carpenter works on site, to illustrate, a joiner will construct a window frame in the joinery workshop utilizing machinery, tools and jigs, whilst a carpenter will fit the window frame into the window opening on site. Each type of tradesman knows a little about the others skillsets though would likely be unable to trade places without getting some additional training. To add yet more confusion, those trying to find carpentry apprenticeships in Stanford-le-Hope, will find themselves studying for a City and Guilds exam in "Carpentry and Joinery" but in fact will be employed as either a carpenter or joiner ie working either in a joinery works or out on site.
