While the products other Tradeskill classes in one way or another concern your adventuring life, most of the Carpenter's wares are for the non-combat relaxing lifestyle. Carpenters make House Furniture, Strong Boxes, Consignment Containers (Tier 3+), Portable Repair Kits (T7, T8), and Deity Altars (Tier 4,7).
Unlike other professions which use 1 station their whole life, Carpenters use four different tradeskill stations!
For the most part, it's the standard fuel per station being used.
Note: exceptions may apply to both stations and fuels. (There may still be a fuel bug present in the game.
The vast majority of a carpenter's creations are designed to be placed in one's home. Carpenters are the only class that crafts furniture*, and so they create all types: from standard fare such as chairs and tables to exotic light fixtures and foreboding sculptures. Almost all crafted furniture has an amount of Rent Status Reduction, which reduces the status upkeep cost of a home (up to 0 status cost).
Galleries of crafted furniture can be found at EQ2 Trader's Corner, which has recipes and images of all crafted furniture, and Everseek which has both crafted and other-source furniture images.
The T4 recipes are available in 'Deity Altar Crafting' (Costing 42g). They use common T4 materials. They are named "Crafted Altar of <DEITY>".
The T7 recipes are scribed from 'Advanced Deity Altar Crafting' (Costing 6p). They are named "Imbued Altar of <DEITY>". Despite the name, they use no Imbuing Material. Instead these recipes use the T7 Rare Wood Ebony.
Strong boxes are heavy wood-based containers (weighing 100 units) with no item weight reduction. Along with their larger weight, their storage capacity is greater also. Although not specifically intended for everyday use, many people use them in place of bags such as a backpack, if their player strength will allow them to carry the extra weight.
The most common use for a strong box is for the bank or house vault, and, at early levels, storage containers for the broker.
By using a consignment container, you can then "Place" the display in-house (from a right-click menu, accessible from the market board). Upon doing so, other players can then enter your house and purchase your items directly (bypassing the markup imposed by the broker).
Carpentry was a skill that was in the stat screen on RSC for much of its early life, though there was no way to train it. It wasn't until the Agility skill was implemented that Carpentry was removed to be resurrected later as the much more comprehensive Construction skill.
Originally the empty houses and large building on the east side of Falador were set to be the Player-owned houses along with an added and then removed part of Varrock. When Falador's graphics were updated on RS2, Falador's Player-owned house area simply became an NPC residential area.
