Dear Mr. Edwin:

Having mastered the art of carpentry at the vocational institute of Atlanta, I have been offering my services in this field for 6+ years now. Being fully equipped with all the expertise demanded by a position of finish carpenter, I wish to apply for the same at CLP Wood Works.

Following is a list of competencies which makes me an exceptional candidate for this position:

✓ Proven neatness in work, resulted in high level of customer satisfaction
✓ Adept at finishing procedures; lamination, milling, polishing, coating, sanding, sharpening, and topping

My experience with Eden builders had given me the opportunity to perform high-quality interior finishing tasks which familiarized me with modern and contemporary wood finishing techniques. Having some amazing wood paneling masterpieces to my credit, I also specialize in maple wood-based works. Being a crafty and creative finish carpenter, I have always found it very easy to understand plans and sketches.
