Following on from our windows and doors courses where you’ll learn many traditional joinery and carpentry techniques. We offer a broader course for carpentry that’ll benefit onsite and residential Installations. Listed are the key areas we cover.
We will introduce you to the idea of making and installing wooden windows. We show you all the traditional methods of joining as well as how to install glazing. We will teach you about building regulation requirements and many other important factors that pertain to windows.
Doors are joined in the same way as windows and taking the window door, and carpentry courses together will give you a much fuller understanding of woodwork and windows. WE teach how to make doors, how to fit them, and how to hang them into the frames. We will also show you how to fit a five lever locking mechanism to meet all current insurance regulations and requirements. The course shows you how to do all this as well as what it would take to move into management and understanding deeply carpentry
Roofing is one of those skills that will never go out of fashion. Almost all homes that are built for residential purposes today still use old joinery technique and wooden trusses. You’ll learn how to make them and how to fit them and what makes you a good installer on site with safety and skills part of the programme.
Fitting kitchens is one of those jobs that requires a little skill in all departments. To gain a full understanding of kitchen fitting you’ll need to take our plumbing course as well but in the carpentry course we will show you how to get everything ready for a plumber and how to fit worktops neatly, and safely.
You won’t be a seasoned cabinet maker in a two week course but we will show you how to get started cabinet making. The joining methods used will be shown and also the range of machinery that skilled, time served joiners use. Our joiner instruction officer has been working with wood for forty years on site and has an excellent record for quality.
Cabinet and joinery are very similar. Joinery is a little more broad. You’ll learn how to make and fit stairs. You’ll learn about techniques associated with making windows. You’ll touch on furniture making but not nearly as much detail as the cabinet making course.
Second fix is a term for onsite joinery. You’ll learn how to fit architraves, internal doors, and skirting boards. This is the easiest place to start in carpentry and you’ll be shown how to safely operate a chop saw and pin gun.
