1. Identify the scope of workIt is important to identify the scope of work with your carpenter. There are three ways to work with your carpenter:You can give the whole contract for the custom carpentry to the carpenter, which includes the procurement of raw materials such as plywood, nails, screws, adhesive and so on, as well as the fabrication of furniture and other woodwork items, as per the proposed design. If it is a very big project and you have chosen high-quality wood, it might be better to buy it yourself after the carpenter gives his estimate of how much is needed. For small quantities it is less trouble to let the carpenter buy it with the other materials.
