Take a glance around you; you may have seen wooden furniture and yet do not know what joinery is? This happens with many.
Until they get their places built/renovated, many people do not know what exactly commercial joinery is.
Joinery, by definition, refers to the act of joining or attaching two things. This may be used in building furniture, providing flare with the old wooden piece that is passed on to you from generations, or anything that involves wood.
Commercial joinery, as the name suggests, refers to building wood items that are to be set up in a commercial space- Offices, Hotels, or cafes, etc.
Commercial joiners, to put it differently, are wooden architects. They build you wooden or timber stairs, windows, or any wooden intricate piece you can think of, by nailing/gluing/screwing the wooden planks together.
Who Is A Carpenter Then?
Having read that definition of Commercial Joiner, you may be trying to run the services of a carpenter in your mind and connect the dots.
Commercial Joinery focuses on ‘creating’ the pieces- staircase, cabinets, while carpentry is focused on 'fitting’ them on the construction site.
Commercial joinery builds what the carpenter installs in the under-construction building. So whilst the commercial joinery takes place in a workshop, carpentry takes place on the construction site.

Run your needs and budget by your Joiner. No matter how spacious or tight your space is, Commercial Joinery helps you make the best use of your space by knowing your style, needs, and budget.
Enquire about Joiner’s experience. Everyone prefers a joiner that has been in the profession for a significant amount of time. Experienced joiners know how to deliver to the customer’s needs and can even suggest designs fitting your space and profession.

With a plethora of material choices available, focusing on sustainability can help you narrow down these options and make your work-space sustainable.
