Job Description for Lead Carpenter
A lead carpenter is a skilled laborer with a focus on constructing wood-based products. Most lead carpenters work in an industrial or construction setting to build housing frames (rather than building rocking chairs and furniture); however, some upscale furniture products are still made by hand. The work life of a lead carpenter varies depending on the industry. Some carpenters have more structured work hours; for example, they may work during regular business hours with pay for any overtime work. Some carpenters are self-employed with work hours that are much more variable.
