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. 

Decking

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

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.

Cut 3x Plywood sheets in half

$80

Brighton VIC, Australia

16th Jun 2024

I need 3x 19mm plywood sheets cut at the 645mm mark. They are 1200 in length. Unfortunately, I just don't have the right space or equipment to safely get it done, while also ensuring the cut is straight. The first photo shows my attempt at the cut and setup with support pieces of wood, I was able to get through 1 board but had a kickback on my circular saw. Second photo shows the first board cut. Third photo shows the other boards that need to be cut. You'll need your own tools to get the job done.

St Kilda East VIC, Australia

15th Jun 2024

Need assistance securing pax wardrobe to brick wall. Ideally someone with pax experience. Pax units have been assembled and joined. We’re not cutting the skirting boards so are using wood planks to connect the wall to the wood and then the wood to the pax via this method: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=JFyu866UqgU&pp=ygUTUGF4IHdhcmRyb2JlIGFuY2hvcg%3D%3D Wood pieces have been cut and pre drilled, we have bremick 25mm wall plugs for a 6mm drill and what we have been advised are the right screws for the task bremick chipboard screws What we need? Someone with more skill/confidence in drilling into the brick to assist with the steps from about the 4.17 mark of the video. We have a Stanley FatMax Impact Drill with Hammer and a 6mm masonry bit but you may want to bring your own tools if you think we haven’t got the right ones for the job. We will put the doors on and configure the internal cupboards, just need someone to attach to the wall. Thanks!

Thanks so much Mark, you saved us ☺️ So knowledgable on the pax system, and gave us plenty of tips

2x deck repairs

$200

Carrum VIC, Australia

15th Jun 2024

I have videos of both decks which explains it more clearly, can send this if needed (airbnb doesn’t allow videos). Two deck repairs: First one is to make some small repairs to the timber supports under this small deck in the front of house. A few of the decking boards have sunk and I believe the timber supports underneath needs to be adjusted. The photo with the arrows shows the area needing fixing. Boards are ecoboards and snap-loc clips are used. I have new decking board and snap-loc clips that can be used. Second one is to add some additional framework to the back deck to fill in where there were plant pots previously. Again I have the deck boards and clips ready to go. Videos explain it better, I can send these.

Glen Iris VIC, Australia

14th Jun 2024

Looking for someone to help install ikea wardrobes into my master and kids bedrooms. See images of current wardobes, and photo of desire finish. I am purchasing custom doors for the ikea frames so the required work is for someone to modify bulk head and sides to make wardrobes look built in. Additionally, we have a switch board in the main bedroom, work would be required to box the angled part of the wall in and move the switch box to be accessed in the built in cabinet. (Or if the carpenter has a better solution I’m all ears!) No painting required.

Had crew lined up but they have been held up on another job. It's a quick simple job. I need 5 sheets of scyon flooring lifted up from below up on top of the new balcony frame. It's about 2.7mt height i think so might need 2 people (one on top to pull it up while the other one pushes from below). Needs to be done in the morning tomorrow. These are the 5 sheets https://www.bunnings.com.au/james-hardie-2700-x-600-x-19mm-secura-exterior-flooring_p0710430?store=6240&gad_source=1&gclid=CjwKCAjwjqWzBhAqEiwAQmtgT4EjEVfBwkj2fVSvg6rqclzA6_SzwoEnLJuBm6tACujSOnODf4MjJRoCbD0QAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds Very quick job, they weigh a bit so you'll need to be able to physically push and slide them up there.

Carpenter and stainer

$180

Chelsea VIC 3196, Australia

27th May 2024

Two tasks 1. To put up four shelves in a wardrobe. I have all the fixing screws, wood, shelves, nail glue and filler. 2. Sand down lightly a new laundry door and give it two coats of stain. Sand paper can be provided and I have a clear coat stain

Has some very good ideas and worked quite late to get the job finished. Plus coming back to complete the task, as I required another stain and it took 18 hours to dry. Good at saving costs by using materials in an efficient way.
