Carpentry and Joinery - Bench Level 2

Bench joiners are more concerned with producing wooden products such as windows, doors, fitted cupboards etc which are produced in a workshop. There are also specialised carpenters/joiners who work on film sets, stages, boats etc. Bench joiners may build spiral staircases or fitted kitchens. Some carpenters/joiners may go on to specialise in restoration work. This course will further develop the skills learnt on a level 1 carpentry or joinery qualification.
