Journeyman carpenters supervise the activities of laborers, carpenter's helpers and apprentices. They use measuring devices, electric saws, hammers, levels, miter boxes, pneumatic nail guns, sanding machines and squares. Journeyman carpenters also construct underground partitions, braces and specialty concrete forms. Many jobs require carpenters to be able to read and act on blueprints and other plan documents.
