Fantastic job highly recommended

Deck stain


Great job and some very happy children. Thanks Allan

Cubby construction


Jack did an awesome job on our laundry, he was super flexible to work on weekends. He’s very friendly, good at communicating, easy going and he didn’t finish the job until it was perfect - even if it meant a bit of extra time here and there. Thank you and highly recommend him.

Louis was on time and completed task quickly.

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.

Cut ply wood table saw


South Hobart TAS 7004, Australia

25th Oct 2023

timber cuts for subwoofer enclosure. timber is marine ply 18mm thick, has to be a super accurate so a table saw or something equivalent is a must, timber was too expensive to do by hand, for someone with the experience & right tools it's not even a ten minute job I can come to you, its already in the car . If you would like more info ask whatever you need to know. cheers Jeff! Edit Cmon guys I've had offers of 100 bucks and 150 seriously for 10 minutes work. I'm here to try save money if I wanted to pay anywhere near that for 10 minutes work I'd go to the cabinet maker who did it last time for around 80 bucks. I'm not a tight ass but those offeres are ludicrous, and unless you have a proper table saw or drop saw please don't enquire. Most I'll pay is 50 or go to the cabinet maker again or probably even Bunnings and pay them to use their drop saw. I would much rather put $50 can someone's pocket who didn't have much work going at the moment as money is tight for most people that doesn't justify the offers I have had and I won't be replying to them because I have nothing nice to say about that skulduggery.
