Waltham Abbey Carpenters and Joiners

Joiners Waltham Abbey

Now, many of you in Waltham Abbey may well be slightly mystified in regards to the precise meaning of the term "carpentry and joinery" or "carpenters and joiners", and in truth such terms can be somewhat misleading. In point of fact there've been several instances over the years when I've heard a home owner ask "what precisely is the difference between a carpenter and joiner?" and of course there can be substantial differences. While now and again you'll run into a craftsman in Waltham Abbey who is genuinely a "carpenter and joiner", usually he'll be one or the other. So what the heck is the difference? Well a straightforward response would be that a joiner does his stuff in a workshop, while a carpenter does his work on site, to illustrate, a joiner will build a window frame in the workshop employing hand tools, jigs and machinery, while a carpenter will install the window frame in the structure on site. Each type of craftsman will know some of the others techniques and yet would probably not be able to change places without doing some additional training. To add yet more confusion, young adults seeking to get a carpentry apprenticeship in Waltham Abbey, will find themselves taking a City and Guilds examination in "Carpentry and Joinery" but will in fact be employed as either a joiner or carpenter ie learning their trade in a joinery workshop or out on a building site.

Coving Waltham Abbey

Coving Waltham Abbey

There could also be other tasks around the home that your local Waltham Abbey carpenter will be able to help you with, even stuff which you might think would need the skills of another specialist. Fitting decorative coving around the walls of your rooms is an illustration of the sort of skilled work he or she may be able to do. While you may generally look for a specialist coving fitter or perhaps plasterer in Waltham Abbey, if you talk to your favourite carpenter, he/she will almost certainly be willing to help you, and will already have the proper tools for successfully completing the task. Proper carpenters learn all about complex joints and angles when learning the art of roofing, consequently the fashioning of coving mitres and corners comes as second nature to those who have paid attention. In actual fact you will have to retain a joiner or carpenter when the coving involved is made of wood, which is often the case with older houses.
