Re: Any carpenters online?
I'm a licensed construction supervisor in Massachusetts, that's a fancy word for carpenter. I passed a stupidass test that basically showed I knew how to read the building code book.
You could try to start out on your own by doing small jobs, this is what I did. You could fix peoples loose railings, try a small remodeling job, build a deck, etc... Then gain experience and tools and start working on bigger and better projects. I've been doing this for 5 years with my 3 brothers and we're already doing some major things. Right now we're building a $5M warehouse for a local auto parts distributor. Currently I'm making $35 when I work hourly and upwards of over $50/hour when doing kitchen remodeling which is our specialty.
If you have any questions feel free to ask!!
