Woodworkers may work on an assembly line performing one task in a product-building process, or they may create customized pieces by operating a variety of smaller tools, like drills, saws and sanders. Sample resumes in this field indicate duties such as setting up and operating a variety of different saws; reading blueprints; making any necessary repairs to tools and machines; and operating a forklift to pull stock for projects. Employers may seek out Woodworkers who can show a minimum of a high school diploma on their resumes, though most beginning woodworkers acquire their necessary skills through on-the-job training.
