What does a Joiner do?

What is Joinery Work?

Joinery is one of the most challenging and unique trades, with quality joinery work being highly sought after all across the globe. Due to the intricacy and time-consuming nature of joinery, it takes many years for expert joiners to master their craft and assemble the skills required to tackle the wide variety of projects most commonly associated with joinery. These projects typically include custom-made wooden stairs, gates, doors, and other furniture. As well as woodworking and carpentry skills, joinery work also requires excellent attention to detail, the ability to work both independently and as part of a team, as well as a strong understanding of how to not use the tools required for joinery work, but also how to repair these tools. 

But what exactly does joinery work entail?

As a joiner, you are required to carry out various tasks depending on each particular project you are working on. For example, before any work begins, you must first draft a design for the piece in question, whether it be a wooden door or bespoke staircase. Often this will also require the site to be surveyed in order to find out the exact measurements required. Following this, the wood must be cut and crafted to the exact specifications set out in the design process. Joiners must also work closely with suppliers to make sure that the wood used in the manufacturing process is in line with our client’s specifications. It is also important to ensure that the correct amount of wood is initially sourced to avoid a shortage of materials which could impact the timeframe in which the project can be completed. Here at DC Joinery, our years of experience of joinery work in Dublin ensures this is never the case. 

Once the wood has been marked according to our bespoke design, we then begin to fashion the wood using a mixture of hand tools and power tools. Another hugely important element of joinery work is ensuring that all of our work is carried out while adhering to a strict schedule. Here at DC Joinery, we frequently work on various projects simultaneously for a variety of commercial and residential clients, all of which command equal importance and attention levels. In order to make sure that each project is completed on time and to the standards expected of our work here at DC Joinery, we plan each project to perfection.
