Forum Title: Becoming A Carpenter
Hi folks,My name is Ben. I am 25 years old and I have absolutely no trade experience. All my life I have wanted to learn how to build thingsóespecially things from wood. However, none of my family members are handy and they always discouraged me from entering the trades. Now, I am in my junior year of college in San Francisco and I hate it. I do not look forward to graduating next year and becoming another miserable desk-jockey. I want to become a carpenter. I want to receive the best training possible, but I am not sure where to look. I want to learn everything from framing to finish. I have a particular interest in historic preservation and woodworking. Ideally, I would like to learn from a seasoned and knowledgeable contractor who takes pride in his work and is eager to teach someone who is eager to learn. I am considering applying for an apprenticeship through San Franciscoís Local 22, but they have a long waitlist of applicants and I donít foresee the economy getting better anytime soon. I would greatly appreciate any advice on how to pursue my trainingóespecially from SF locals. Oh yeah, please let know if I am being totally unrealistic in my hopes.Thank you,Ben
