Many trades and professions used wood as their raw material with many

specialising in different areas of construction. Example of these are the Cabinet Maker,

the Wheelwright, the Joiner and several others. The carpenter could be considered as a

general woodworker, called on to make and repair many items that may cover several trades.

The majority of artefacts displayed are the more common hand tools. Two larger items of

machinery, are a morticer for cutting square holes in wood and a power bandsaw.
