“The World needs more carpenters.  The problem is that everyone wants to be an architect.   I am very proud to be a carpenter”.
James Wales – founder of Wikipedia

The site foreman asked me if I was any good at hanging doors?
I said, ”No! I am really bad at hanging doors. But, as a carpenter, I can tell you that I can do them very quickly”.
Kevin Sutherland – fellow chippy

When you’re a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you’re not going to  use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody  will ever see it. You’ll know it’s there, so you’re going to use a beautiful  piece of wood on the back.
Steve Jobs – Founder of Apple

There is a good reason why mankind was saved by a carpenter….
“A carpenter uses as much as God has given him – his mind, his voice, his heart, his eyes  and his hands.  This the highest form of expression on the planet. From God, to him, to you”.
Avery Brooks – Actor

The best buildings in the World owe their very existence to the many fine craftsmen who turned an architect’s dream into something solid.

Q. Why are there so few great barns like this one left?
A. Because any fool can knock down a barn, but it takes a carpenter to build one.
