Thanks! Makes me wonder what kind of things a joiner typically made.

Hi Roots,
Church Roofs, Wooden Ships, Lock gates, Timer Frame Houses. Consider a joiner as a Wood engineer.

A skilled carpenter, capable of finer work than a plain carpenter. i.e. skilled in making joints for furniture-making. The term is still very much in common usage.
