Carpenters Local 1281

Look around you. Just about every building in your community was at least partially built by skilled carpenters...your home...your school...the malls where you shop ...the office buildings. To be a carpenter is to be a member of one of the oldest and most respected trades. Carpenters work with many tools and materials to build houses, erect skyscrapers, construct bridges, tunnels and highways. You can build a lifetime career in carpentry, if you like working with tools and like to create things. Hammer out a well built future with training in carpentry.
