30 Best Gifts for Carpenters on Holidays, Birthdays and Other Occasions

In the ancient civilizations of more than 2,000 years ago, carpenters were an essential occupational group. Chinese, Egyptians, Jews, Romans and Greeks depended on these skilled woodworker artisans to design and build furniture and structures. Items and enclosed structures were needed for architecture, agriculture, recreation, transport and religious purposes.

Virtually all of the carpentry tools that are in use today evolved from the simple designs of ancient tools. These tools include lathes, saws, planes, rule sticks, squares and chisels. Carpenters and other artisans working with the ancient bow-lathe used a leather strap like a bow, moving it back and forth to cut designs into revolving wood items.

Many carpentry practices and processes also originated with these skilled and innovative ancient artisans and their primitive tools.
