    A good carpenter (framing,finish,siding) should be able to furnish you with references or a portfolio of their previous work.Don't be afraid to ask questions.Be sure to discuss ALL aspects of job to be preformed.If you add EXTRAS after the job has started they will cost you more than if you discussed them beforehand.

    As far as finding a GOOD carpenter take a ride around town and look for any projects currently being done.Stop and talk to some of sub-contractors even if their not carpenters.These guys all work on the same projects.

    The best guy to talk to is a finish carpenter he's the one who has to follow behind the framer.If the framing is well done it makes his job alot easier.

    By the way as far as giving him a drink as referred to above I've been a carpenter for 21 yrs. and I don't drink we're not all drunks that's stereotyping

    Newspaper...but dont give him anything to drink...and talk about everything you need to be done before hiring him, including the price, so that you will not find yourself having a big surprise cost

    Depends on what you need it for. But the phone book or a news paper... look in the help wanted ads for fraimers.
