    Obviously one should be able to do carpentry if they wish to earn a living doing it. Going to a vocational school isn't a bad start, but there are plenty of people who earn a great living doing carpentry who never went to any type of school. Many people have learned by starting at the bottom of a company and getting the education on the job which eventually led to starting their own company.

    Regardless, getting paid to do carpentry requires two skills. The first skill is the actual carpentry itself. The problem most people run into is the second skill which is the ability to build and run a business. Just because someone is able to do carpentry doesn't mean they can build their own business. The two skills are completely different and having one does not mean that the other will be automatic. No one cares how great you are as a carpenter if you don't possess the ability to manage your company and market your skills.

    The demand of carpenter is increasing day by day but the mode of working and the way of finishing with respect to time. Furniture become accessories of decoration, so we need a furniture in a good look or furnishing. For why a carpenter should posses that quality and talent. Now days a carpenter should posses innovative ideas.

    My father was a carpenter by trade. He never attended any type of schooling but was taught the skills needed by his father. That is also the way I learned. You will need to start out at the bottom and improve your skills to move up. Usually, you can start as a go-for worker. You bring tools, materials and the like to the more experienced workers. As your skills improve you can join the regular team of workers doing different types of work from painting, installing, caulking, and more. As time progresses and your skills as well, you will be a #1 hand. Many times this means supervising other workers. The contractor (lead carpenter) has a license and bids the jobs and makes sure that they are completed on time. This is a long and hard process, but a very rewarding one if you have the talent and patience required.

    You can start local with this trade without any background in education, so long as you know what you are doing. Self-trained carpenters are more common than people think.
    If you start local to grow a business, you can eventually branch out enough. No one will be asking you for qualifications at that point.
