Finish carpentry is sometimes referred to as trim carpentry, but in reality, it involves much more than just the installation of molding in a building or house. Finish carpentry involves working both on the inside and the outside of the house, and it can include building stairs, installing wood siding, hanging doors and putting in such items as wainscoting, bookcases and mantelpieces. To become proficient in this skill takes years of practice, where one must become familiar with a wide range of woodworking tools.

Finish carpentry makes the eye work hard and skip over imperfections. At this point, the framing carpenter has made the house plumb, level and square. Or not. A good framer can ease the finish carpenter’s job by providing plumb walls and plenty of blocking for nailers for attaching trim. Or not. But even if the framer couldn’t read a level and and even if he added no more blocking than was absolutely necessary, the finish carpenter’s job is to make the doors, windows and cabinets work, and to make the house look good.

Finish carpentry is more than interior trim. It includes siding, decking and even roofing–anything the owner will see after moving in. Rough carpenters evolve into finish carpenters by learning how to measure, mark and cut more accurately. With practice, splitting the pencil line with a saw cut and working to closer tolerances become second nature.

Perfect miters are only part of finish carpentry. Finish carpenters must develop an eye for proportion and detail. They must learn to visualize the steps that lead to the finished product.Schedule an estimate
