A furniture carpenter works on building, repairing and renovating old furniture and fittings, as well as, for example, making theatrical backgrounds, props or fittings for ships. Furniture carpenters often work based on the ideas and project descriptions of designers or according to their own drawings. Furniture carpentry is a certified trade.
As a furniture carpenter, you could work in a workshop, in custom construction and repair, on a construction site or in consulting and sales in a furniture store. Carpenters work a lot by hand, but there is also specialized machine work, for example in computer-controlled carpentry machines.
