In this video, we examine the average Carpenter salary in 2019 and Carpenter jobs growth. We gathered data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). We look at the historical salaries and job growth of Carpenters.

These income and job statistics are from the Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) program. These salaries do not include bonuses or benefits. In our opinion, these are the most accurate salary numbers (better than indeed, glassdoor, and payscale).

Carpenters construct, repair, and install building frameworks and structures made from wood and other materials.

Carpenters typically do the following:
• Follow blueprints and building plans to meet the needs of clients
• Install structures and fixtures, such as windows and molding
• Measure, cut, and shape wood, plastic, and other materials
• Construct building frameworks, including walls, floors, and doorframes
• Erect, level, and install building framework with the aid of rigging hardware and cranes
• Inspect and replace damaged framework or other structures and fixtures
• Instruct and direct laborers and other construction helpers

Carpenters are a versatile occupation in the construction industry, with workers usually doing many different tasks. For example, some carpenters insulate office buildings and others install drywall or kitchen cabinets in homes. Those who help construct tall buildings or bridges often install wooden concrete forms for cement footings or pillars and are commonly referred to as rough carpenters. Rough carpenters also erect shoring and scaffolding for buildings.

Carpenters use many different tools to cut and shape wood, plastic, fiberglass, or drywall. They commonly use hand tools, including squares, levels, and chisels, as well as many power tools, such as sanders, circular saws, nail guns, and welding machines.

Carpenters fasten materials together with nails, screws, staples, and adhesives, and check their work to ensure that it is precisely completed. They use tape measures on nearly every project to quickly measure distances. Many employers require applicants to supply their own tools.

The following are examples of types of carpenters:

Construction carpenters construct, install, and repair structures and fixtures of wood, plywood, and wallboard, using carpenter’s hand tools and power tools.

Rough carpenters build rough wooden structures, such as concrete forms; scaffolds; tunnel, bridge, or sewer supports; and temporary frame shelters, according to sketches, blueprints, or oral instructions.

In this video, Stephen Hack talks about Carpenter statistics nationally and across the United States. “How much does a Carpenter make?” and “How many jobs are there for Carpenters” are important questions for people trying to choose between different fields. Carpenters are well paid professionals that play a vital role in our society.

  16. Dan Socia on January 23, 2022 at 9:31 pm

    I’m assuming this is for the entire US… Considering in California if you are on commercial jobs in the union you’re making 50+ dollars an hour… As a residential carpet or myself he does both finished work/cabinet and also rough carpentry. I make A little over 60,000 and most of my colleagues from other companies here in California make about the same as the framers and finish carpenters.. That’s assuming you have all the skills and every single tool you need and honestly never really have to use much of the companies equipment. That’s how I figured out how to get paid more.
