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.

Simple wood cutting - read description


Hawthorn East VIC, Australia

26th Mar 2024

I need someone with a table saw and experience with woodworking to help me cut some wood I’ve already purchased. If possible, help fitting threaded insert into the wood is preferable too. The initial quote request is arbritrary as I will need to talk it through with the person to figure out how it can best be done/what needs to be done.

Darren was just fantastic. He was happy to work closely with me to ensure the project would work within my ideas but he would also offer his input with how to better achieve my goals. He has a great eye for detail, beyond reasonably priced and I would recommend him to anyone!

Tiling pre-cut terrazzo for a bench


Kew VIC, Australia

1st Mar 2024

I have made a cantilevered bench which is approx 8m long and 300m deep. We bought the terrazzo (30mm thick) and it is being precision cut to size, including mitres. Basically it needs to be precisely stuck down. The front face of the bench is 160mm deep (pre-cut, too) - which is mitred and is to be joined to the flat. There is also a base plate under the seat which is 200m (terrazzo) and this is to be stuck under the seat the whole length.

Very good to deal with.
