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.

Prospective joiners ideally have working familiarity with commonly used woodworking machinery and tools, and possess the ability to do basic math and make accurate measurements. Heavy lifting and the movement of large objects may be required. Applicants with woodworking and carpentry experience are typically preferred for employers seeking joiners, though formal training is also desirable. Joiners are typically are often employed by contractors, but they can also be employed full-time by a company. As such, working hours and conditions are highly variable. Joiners working in furniture assembly will spend most of their time in indoor shop and fabrication environments working with various forms of heavy equipment, whereas joiners working for construction or carpentry contractors may find themselves working in outdoor conditions and performing many other tasks depending on the specific demands of the work.
