Carpentry also refers to the incrementable skill Carpentry.

This skill allows you to build various wooden structures and vehicles, to craft wooden objects, and to cut Logs into Boards. Unlike some other crafting skills, the quality of Carpentry products is not known to be affected by any Attribute and is instead only affected by the incremental Carpentry skill.

Do note that wood is not hard capped. For beginners with access to only q10 trees, this is a very good thing. If you happen across dead deer (bears sometimes kill them and leave the corpse it seems), get the bones and make yourself a Bone Saw. The highest quality Board you can get is sqrt(bone saw q * tree q). If you get a q54 bone saw, q10 trees can make up to q23 boards. Raising your carp to 23 in that case will produce the best boards you can make. The quality of the board is the average of the boards maximum quality and your carpentry skill, obviously capped by the max. Higher quality boards raise the quality of tanning tubs and therefore leather you produce. For beginners, leather is probably the first tradable item you will be able to produce after Foraging for things.
