As i show good hand skills for the locksmith trade i am also a qualified Carpenter and Joiner. I hold a NVQ level 1, 2 and 3 in this area and had also left my apprentiship of Carpentry and Joinery with an Advanced Qualification Award. My Aprrenticship was finished in 2009 were at this point i had done partial of my working learning with a Carpenter who had also did Locksmithing and i had learnt many things from him which did not all contain how to break locks. Soon after qualifying i became self employed and continued on with practicing Locksmithing.
James Cardiff Locksmith believes that Carpentry and Joinery has a major impact on a Locksmith. I stand to believe this because a lot of locksmith jobs are to fit locks, and as a carpenter i show a lot more knowledge and hand skills than any other Locksmith in the fitting of furniture to doors. Not only does a Locksmith just fit locks but also does a lot of Ironmongery work such as fit Door Closures, Latches and much more of door fittings.
My toolkit does not hold just Locksmith equipment but also a range of tools to do my job of a Locksmith and Carpenter for the people of Cardiff.
