Carpentry can be very demanding and tiring, however if one has interest in this field then there is no harm in taking carpentry as a career. No job in this world is easy and every job has certain difficulty levels which one must pass through and compromise with to earn money.

However certain things such as ready made parts like stairs, parts of walls, make the job of a carpenter much easier and relaxing. All these things can be installed at the same time by a carpenter since they do not require much hard work and time.

Some work requires standing for long hours, for instance hammering nails, which can take time, drilling holes, taking measurements and other things. The job is also dangerous as it can injure a person at many instances. They have a high risk of slipping and falling off, if working on a height. Even the tools they use can hit them hard and cause a lot of bleeding.

Although being a carpenter, you can work on your own even and do not need to have a boss. You can change employer at any time you want to and have your own work timings.
