Tools of the Trade: Inside the Carpenter's Toolbox

How do carpenters turn building materials into buildings? To find out, this program takes a look at the tools and construction materials carpenters depend on every day. After a rundown on manufactured wood products like plywood, OSB, I-beam joists, and glu-lams as well as the fasteners that hold them all together, the video covers a variety of carpentry tools divided into four groups: planning and drawing, measuring and marking, cutting and shaping, and fastening and assembly. Types of carpenters—rough, finish, and general—are also mentioned, and safety is reinforced throughout. A viewable/printable instructor’s guide is available online. Correlates to all National CTE Organizational Standards (including the provisions of the Perkins Act). A Shopware Production. (19 minutes)
