If you Google it, a carpenter is a person who makes and repairs wooden objects and structures.

So a carpenter is a person who is involved in the job of construction, erection and repairing of wooden objects, furniture, and other materials. Apart from this, they are involved in many other kinds of construction works, which range from highways and bridges to cabinets and cupboards.

Suppose you want to install a new window in your room or want to change the frame of your old windows, you will call a carpenter. If you want a new bookshelf for your books, you will call the carpenter. If you want to a kitchen cabinet built, or a new table, the carpenter is the person you would go to.  

Carpenters also do the job of making sofa sets for your living room or a dining table for your dining room. They also replace the glass panes and change locks of doors. They can shape any wooden object in your desired shape and size.

There is no education needed to be a carpenter but you need to have proper skills to be one. The skills are usually learned by working as an apprentice under a senior carpenter. They teach you to use tools like screwdrivers and pliers, to fix nuts and bolts, to build frame walls, and partitions, and to make models based on blueprints.
