Job Description for Joiner

A joiner is a carpenter who primarily deals with the fitting of wooden parts to specific designs by using hand tools and large equipment including jointers, planers and jigsaws. Unlike carpenters, joiners typically do not use nails in their woodwork; rather, they design and fabricate wooden parts to fit more naturally together. Depending on the employer, joiners may perform a variety of wood-fitting tasks -- such as those demanded by construction -- or they may perform more specialized tasks for larger companies -- such those who specialize in boat or furniture construction and repair. Joiners working in such specializations may also be required to perform other tasks, such as installing parts in ships and other outfitting work. Note: In the U.S., joiners are usually referred to under the umbrella term of carpenters.
