Basic Carpentry Framing


Basic carpentry framing information that may improve framing skills and hopefully motivated the basic carpentry skilled carpenter to develop greater skills than ever before. If anyone is having trouble framing a wall or something this page will clearly help you and anyone who is seeking to find help in this area.

Here is a few problems that are commonly found in most framing jobs.

· The frame lay out is wrong· The screws are not put in right.· The wall is not level· The studs are cut to short· The sheetrock will not line up with the frame work

The frame lay out is wrong

The way to fix it is by laying out the framework again. Mark the center of every 16 inches on the track that is holding the studs. Then install the studs and screw them or nailing it. I make sure every stud that is at the four-foot mark is level this will insures me that when a board has to be place at least the most important stud is accurate.

If you are unfamiliar with screwing the studs or nail them I recommend practicing on similar material. Practice makes perfect once you get technique down then screw or nail away at the project.

If the wall is not level or crooked the best way to straighten it is with a laser level. Or a plumb bob. I have plenty more framing tips inside this website

It is always good to measure twice and cut once it is the golden in carpentry. Also cut the first stud; check it sees if it is short or big then cut the rest of the studs
