I’m just kidding.
I didn’t set out to be a carpenter.
I was just bored.
I don’t know what that feels like, to see something I built become something that was created by an unseen hand for a living. And the thing is, I didn’t like it either.
In my early twenties, I went to college to study anthropology, which is really the best thing I’ve ever studied. I loved it: study, study, study, study, then graduate and get a better job in a different field to supplement my degree.
Then I saw a lot of ads about jobs in factories.
I’m an art critic, so I’m looking for a job that would allow me to make art.
Well, a lot of art people are looking for jobs to make art.
That got me thinking.
What art positions are there for carpenters? (Which probably means that “jobs in the automobile manufacturing industry” are also out there.)
Well, it seems there are tons of opportunities.
But there is one kind of work where the job just isn’t open to carpenters at the present: carpenters in an airplane manufacturing plant. That’s what my friend Matt and I did.
In the 1960s our jobs were mostly as mechanics on old airplanes.
That’s not really an air craft job you’re going to want to take on.
However, a lot of people are now asking me to do “carpenter” jobs in airplanes.
I’ve seen some people who just can’t wait to see us. I think it’s because they want to see something different.
In addition, I think airplane and car repairs are probably the two jobs with the greatest amount of jobs in automotive manufacturing.
My advice to carpenters out there is to just keep studying and learning.
Here’s one interesting link for you: https://www.cars-cargo.com/archives/carshow/2009/10/27 . There are quite a few “old planes” companies in Southern California. The most recent one I’m aware of (that I know of) now has a Facebook page.
Here’s an interesting thing I saw on Carshow a few weeks ago:
