Despite our name, membership is not restricted to carpenters - we also welcome joiners, shopfitters, formwork carpenters, furniture & cabinet makers, boat builders (woodworking skills), heavy structural post & beam carpenters, wheelwrights, wood carvers & wood turners – in fact, most professional people working with wood. Our purpose is to support members and to help raise standards by bringing together a network of people with a genuine interest in wood and our trades.

To ensure that membership of the IOC continues to be a sign of quality, we only approve applicants with relevant qualifications such as a proven track record, backed up with references. This can reassure prospective customers that they are using a genuine, skilled craftsperson who takes real pride in the quality of their work.

We would like to welcome you to a ‘family’ of like-minded, highly skilled and respected professionals who are proud of their heritage as craftsmen. For less than the cost of a coffee a week you too can stand out from the competition.
