Carpentry and Joinery

My Distance Learning College


When a person becomes interested in carpentry he joins millions of crafts people who enjoy the practical and therapeutic benefits of creating useful projects from natural materials. The very nature of creating a useful article from raw wood provides a feeling of useful activity. Wood is only a board when it is in its raw state. However, with the application of creative attention the raw material may evolve into an exclusive piece of furniture, a wooden toy, or many other objects. The professional intent is to create quality objects and this is far from over. Many woodworkers produce items which are one-off and exclusive, and on a commercial basis these items enjoy high prices.

This course covers topics such as:

  • Safety, materials and small tools
  • Sawing and planing
  • Small tools
  • Hammers, screwdrivers and miscellaneous accessories
