A carpenter who can easily cost you an arm and leg if you hire him. Instead of building with wood he butchers it
Had a guy build me a flight of stairs after climbing them they broke in the middle I could have killed myself. Turns out he cut most of the stringer support away not leaving enough to support any weight hence he was not a carpenter but a wood butcher

If that wood butcher comes to the door again, I'm gonna sue the pants off of him.
