Carpentry

JOIN US FOR OPEN HOUSE ON THURSDAY, NOV. 2. RSVP TODAY!

Whether it is a simple dog house or a large mansion, it won’t get built without a carpenter. Carpenters construct, erect, install, and repair structures and fixtures made from wood and other materials and they need to do it with a sense of style and an eye for efficiency. Carpenters need to understand power tools, blue prints, elements of design, and budgeting. The Carpentry lab at LCTI will prepare you for a career in this essential field.

Students in Carpentry will:

  • Research careers in construction
  • Learn shop safety
  • Learn skills with hand tools and power machinery
  • Estimate materials and cost for carpentry projects
