Follow the carpentry training tips on this page correctly and you will enhance your carpentry skills. Hopefully you will find yourself constantly employed and always making money in this trade. Remember in basic carpentry everything’s not all physical it’s also mental. So lets get to the facts!
When you are training or approaching a job you should have an open mind and good judgment towards your work. Never be afraid to ask questions. Always be prepared for the job, have all the tools you need and more. Always follow rules and regulations on your job such as: be a timely person come in when you are supposed to in the morning for break and lunch have your hard hat on if required etc.
Carpenters and carpenter helpers, always thinks ahead. Remember you never stop learning. Be motivated to do the work your getting paid to do. Being a good listener, following instructions, and being aware of your surroundings is very important in carpentry training.
You can learn basic carpentry just by watching the pros, I used this tactic for years. Know when to shoot for quality instead of quantity. If you are working in a high pace environment and you don’t know what to do next on a carpenters job become what I call "A Motion Picture" and stay in motion by measuring some wood or cleaning your work area use that time to think about what you are going to do next.
The contractors who hire you want to see productivity, give a honest days work for a honest days pay. Do not try to slack off the company by talking a lot or moving very slow, I find people who use these tactics are more likely headed to the unemployment line. If you "pay attention to details" you will excel in your training and in carpentry.
