HELPFUL TIP:

When planning a cast member's talents and skills, think about how genetics, personality traits (both positive attributes and flaws), past experiences, environment, and the character's roles (within a family, a community, and society) all factor into what strengths may form. These special qualities should tie into the story, not only to make the character interesting but also to help him achieve his goal.
DEFINITION:
The art of creating or repairing items made of wood

DESCRIPTION:
There are many different kinds of carpenters, and their designations depend on what they make: coopers (barrel makers); framers (carpenters specializing in the structural framework of houses and buildings); cabinetmakers (cabinets, dressers, wardrobes, chests); trim carpenters (moldings, trims, mantels, baseboards, etc.); and finish carpenters or joiners (makers of furniture, instruments, and fine woodworking products). Shipbuilders also sometimes fall under the carpentry umbrella, and there are many other specializations that are no longer relevant in modern culture, such as wagon making, wheel-wrighting, and the construction of everyday wooden items like eating utensils, dishes, and tool handles.
