What do carpenters do?

Whether you’re planning a major renovation on your home or you simply want to make things look a bit nicer, hiring a carpenter or chippy can help you with many different tasks. Carpenters use different types of power tools and hand tools to carry on building and construction work. 

Carpentry work is generally broken down into two types: rough and finish. Rough carpentry refers to work that doesn’t have an intricate look, as it’s covered up – often by bricks, tiles, or plaster work. Finish carpentry covers the work that will be on display, so needs to have a nicer finish. Furniture, decking, and window frames all fall into this second category. 


Many Australian homes are blessed with a large backyard and plenty of sunny hours to enjoy that space. A decking specialist can add an outdoor deck or upgrade an existing one that opens up your outdoor space. This is great if you want to entertain guests or eat outside as a family during the sunny months. 

Cabinet making

Cabinet makers are one example of finish carpentry, because of the high level of detail that goes into their end products. Unlike structural work, it’s important that a cabinet looks nice, so this type of carpenter is a lot more focused on fine details. Cabinet makers often specialise in other forms of furniture making too. 

Refinishing carpentry

While structural carpentry is concerned with jobs on the large end of the scale, trim or refinishing carpentry looks at the small end. A trim carpenter is the way to go if you want someone to fix up your skirting boards, cornicing, or a similar aspect of your home.

Custom made furniture

A house isn’t a home without a few personal touches, and if you’d rather avoid the cookie-cutter Ikea approach to decorating your property, hiring a carpenter to create custom-made furniture can make you stand out. Whether you want chairs, tables, or a shoe rack, there’s someone nearby who can help. 


Joinery services encompass the craftsmanship of creating and joining wood in workshops, distinct from on-site carpentry. These services range from bespoke projects to crafting timber buildings, emphasizing precision and passion. Joiners play a crucial role in interior woodwork, window and door production, and specialized construction, offering tailored and quality timber solutions.

Remove old and Install new woodworkers window hood x 2


Paddington QLD, Australia

21st Apr 2024

Remove two metal hoods and install two new metal window hoods from Woodworkers. It's a one piece of metal hood that includes the flashing which needs to be placed under weatherboard walls and then screwed in with the right accessories to ensure longevity. I Size: 95cm width Please note that you'll need your bring any necessary tools and joining accessories (screws and etc) as the hoods are being delivered without any accessories. Instructions for install attached as image. Please only quote if you have %100 confidence. People with previous experience with installing these hoods would get preference. - Access is easy, ground level. Woodworks generic explanation for install- Metal hoods should clear the external jambs of joinery by approximately 30mm and are usually simply screwed directly to the chamferboards with dome head screws & nylon washers to ensure electrolytic compatibility with the hood metal. Remember water cannot flow over zincalume onto galvanised fixings. Because metal hoods are so light they can easily be installed by two people in a fully assembled state. The metal hood needs to be positioned to avoid interference with the window opening (especially with casements) and ensure pedestrian traffic cannot collide with the hood. Ensuring the hood and window are parallel, the top flange of the hood is usually slipped under the chamferboard or weatherboard overlap and the sides are screwed down with to 4 screws each side. 100) AA •

Cut kitchen cabinet to fit new dishwasher


Seven Hills QLD 4170, Australia

3rd Mar 2024

I have an unusable fully integrated half dishwasher. I'd like to replace it with my LG full size freestanding dishwasher under the bench. Task includes: - remove old fully integrated dishwasher - remove the drawer under - remove the side panels and bottom panel to create a space where it can fit my new freestanding dishwasher (60cm X 60cm X 85cm) under the kitchen bench. - place the dishwasher under the bench - install the dishwasher. The section of the cabinet is 60cm wide, so it should fit the dishwasher. Bonus if you can close the space between the kitchen bench and the top of the dishwasher. (Kitchen bench height 87cm vs dishwasher 85cm tall) ETA of dishwasher is tomorrow Monday 7/11. So anytime after that would be awesome!

Quick to respond, communicative. Did a great job. Will contact him again if needing anything else done. Thanks Mark!

Cabinet maker needed to make cavity 4mm wider


Hamilton QLD, Australia

26th Feb 2024

I replaced my ice machine and the new one was wider than expected, it is about 4mm too wide for the cabinet that is intended to house it. I need the cabinet modified to fit it... it *appears* as though there is a fillet panel between the carcases that can possibly be removed which would allow more than enough room, but... I'm not cabinet maker so, I don't know how to do this and don't want to just start tearing my cabinets apart. Hope you can help.

Super fast, on time, friendly, helpful!
