  • Where to look for carpenters and their pay rate?

    So where is a good place to find carpenters? Also, what type of pay rate is pretty standard for them?

    Thanks in advance,

    Jake

    One good place to look is your local theatre group. Theatre carpenters have to build all kinds of crazy things. And as for wages sometimes they are cheaper than union because they love the artistic challenge, Mike

      Offstagejobs.com is a good place for theatrical carpenters. If you are looking to build props or set pieces. If you are looking to just build a large space (ie the walls, floor, ect) then I would look up some General Contractors and see who they would use.

        I agree with morte615, using a GC is your best bet. Also it depends on where you are located. Using a theatrical carpenter wouldn’t fly in Chicago for example, any work that will be open to the public needs to be done by a licensed professional.

          You know a good place to post some ads is craigs list or even facebook market place.

          There is also websites called MEET UP and you can join groups where people talk about that stuff and introduce yourself.

          On my website with applications for actors, we also have section for this very thing as well as techs.
