The Invention of Carpentry

The craft of shaping and using wood – carpentry has its roots in prehistoric times.

Early woodwork consisted of the use of wood for a basic tool, but there is also archeological evidence that Neanderthals were shaping wood into new forms as long ago as the middle paleolithic (Old Stone Age, 300,000 to 30,000 year ago) using tool made from flint and stone.

In this way, many useful things were created from wood, including fire-hardened spears and logs hollowed out to create simple boats.

By the Neolithic (New Stone Age) basic woodworking had evolved into a more complex craft- carpentry. The largely nomadic cultures of the Paleolithic era were setting down into more agrarian societies resulting in an increase in permanent dwellings, and these were often constructed of timber.

Researched settlements in Japan and elsewhere include wooden houses of circa 5000 B.C.E

The word Carpentry actually derives from the Latin word Carpentries, which means a maker of a carriage or wagon.

Even in ancient Rome, however, carpenters were producing not only wagons but a whole array of different wooden products from a weapon (bows, spears and large rock throwing machines) to beautifully crafted furniture.
