In joinery, a carcass (or carcase) is a simple solid box that is used as a building block or basis for the production of a piece of furniture. This may also be referred to as carcase work, carcase construction or case construction. A carcass is typically constructed from an inferior substance that will be given a higher quality covering or veneer. Common carcass materials include softwoods, plywood, laminated board or some other inexpensive material.
