Solid carpentry skills can get you far in life, no matter what career you choose. You'll be able to maintain your own home, making necessary repairs and upgrades and taking advantage of a bit of sweat equity.
Yet carpentry also offers perks beyond the ability to work on your own home. In fact, it can be a lucrative profession for those interested in building homes, renovating buildings, crafting fine furniture, cabinets and so much more. People in this profession can often start their own businesses for the ultimate in employment freedom, or find jobs for building companies or with commercial woodshops.
Of course, the one downside to being a carpenter is that it requires a large number of tools and equipment, and those who go solo might find themselves shelling out big bucks to stay well-stocked. Even those not responsible for buying their own equipment still have to be able to identify various tools used in the trade, and the best applications for each.
