Carpentry is a unique skill that is not possessed by all handymen. To work with with wood requires patience and experience. Each type of wood has its own unique characteristics. Pliability, porosity, strength and color will vary depending on wood. Knowing how to elicit the coloring and wood grain of each plank is an art. We would never send a general contractor to do a carpenter’s job. He may understand the general concept of carpentry but unless he is a carpenter tradesman he will not comprehend the nuances. An amazing carpenter will know which lacquers, stains and polishes to use to enhance the natural wood grain.
