Carpentry is not only a craft, but also a unique technology, but also a general technology for decoration and construction. Carpenter is widely spread in Europe and America. Unlike China, European and American people regard Carpenter as a job that can be done by both the upper and lower classes. Carpentry is taught in many private schools in Europe and America.
In addition to complete sets of tools commonly used in carpentry, such as axe, bow saw, bow drill, shovel and chisel, spherical drill, sheep horn hammer (nail grasping hammer) capable of pulling nails, double saw for logging, etc. have also been developed. Long axis lathes and pedal lathes are also widely used to make furniture and wheel spokes.
