Inscription.  
A carpenter would build and perform various repairs on all the fort structures. Also, tables, desks, bunk beds, lanterns and other furniture could be made if needed. Leather work and repairs would also be done.

The cutting, sewing and making of leather goods were essential tasks. From clothing wares to the repairing of saddles, bridles, reins, stirrups, etc. was a constant much needed job.

Carpenters may have been hired from the surrounding area if needed. Many soldiers however were self-taught and able to perform and fend for themselves. Outside help wasn’t always available while garrisons were on the move.
