I am currently looking for a new job and have been really interested in becoming a jointer working on timber frame buildings. I have no professional experience in woodworking, but I love working on projects when I get the chance and I pick things up very quickly. Does anyone that has broken into this field have any experience for things I can work on prior to trying to convince someone to hire me? This would be a dream job for me and I’m just not sure how to get started. I have found a few companies I would like to work for, but they aren’t hiring. I was planning on sending them a resume and cover letter and seeing where that would take me. Any additional advice is very welcome. Thanks!

Look at the timber frame forums at

You should be able to relocate. I’ve seen jobs available there
for able bodied woodworkers with no special experience in
timber joinery.

Have your say...
