1. What is the name of your profession (position)? Joiner. 2. What is your job and what are your responsibilities. The carpenter is engaged in the manufacture of furniture, but I can also decorate the interior, where everything will be made of wood - the ceiling, floors, stairs, furniture, utensils. 3. What education is required to get your position? In order to become a carpenter, you need to get a special education (furniture joiner / cabinetmaker / carver). It would be nice to have an art education or creative abilities, to feel the color. 4. Describe your working day. The furniture manufacturing process is divided into stages. For example, I need to make parts for furniture. I come to work and immediately start looking for suitable boards, then I run them through special machines in order to fit them to the right dimensions. Then from the same boards I make a set of shields for furniture. The next steps are fitting and assembly. 5. How comfortable are your working conditions (all day outside, or in the office with a cup of coffee)? The conditions are acceptable, there is good equipment that facilitates and speeds up the work process. The workshop is large, spacious, there is no crowding, so the masters do not interfere with each other. 6. What do you like most about your job? I like the manufacturing process itself, in the course of work the tree begins to “sound”, reveals its beauty. Each tree species is interesting in its own way, combining several species in the work, you can achieve an amazing picturesque effect. 7. What do you dislike most about your job? At the moment of processing the part, microscopic wood dust flies in the air, which enters the lungs. If there is a bad hood in the workshop and a respirator is not worn, then lung diseases can develop over time. 8. If it's not a secret, what is your salary level (is it enough to write whether you are satisfied or not)? In principle, it suits me, if anything - I can always earn extra money on private orders. 9. Describe your team, what kind of people work with you? Age is different - from 20 to 50 years, among them are not only furniture makers, but also artists, restorers, carvers. 10. What human qualities do you think are most important in your business? Patience and calm. You have to do time-consuming, painstaking work, for example, the manufacture of small parts. Sometimes the result is unpredictable, sometimes you have to start work again, and this takes valuable time. 11. Work gives me additional opportunities (everything that work gives you except money, from self-expression and communication with interesting people to the opportunity to visit different countries). Work helps me to express myself, because it is a creative process. When working with wood, you feel like an artist, our carpentry workshop is not an assembly line, where everything is predictable, here even a simple stool comes out differently than the previous time. 12. Do you have the opportunity to evaluate your work on a five-point scale, what grade would you give? On a solid "4"! 13. Why did you choose this job? I grew up in a private house, from childhood I fiddled with wood chips by the stove, turned something with a penknife. Hprobably, it was then that the love for wood appeared - this “warm”, in general, malleable and universal material. 14. What do you think we did not include in the plan and what else would you like to share with us? Probably, the question is about the “age” of the profession and its relevance. There are “young” professions, and there are “ancient” ones. Wood was the first material to be worked with and is still popular today.
