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.

VJ Panel Kitchen Peninsula (MDF install, inside, in air con)


Taigum QLD, Australia

6th Mar 2024

Finish a kitchen peninsula with VJ paneling from benchtop to floor, not the return. I’ll supply and pre-paint the VJ panels in dark navy blue, understanding I’ll probably have to do some touch up’s post install which is cool. Need the Airtasker to then cut the panels to size and attach including a very slight return to in-fill where the kickboard is on the side view. It’s attaching to semi gloss kitchen cabinets, so ok with glue or small nails (subtle), neat finish. To be clear, the kitchen is already built. It’s attaching cutting and attaching 3x panels to cover the existing cabinet back. The area is about 2.6m long by approx 88cm high. There’s 2x PowerPoints to cut around, one near a corner, the other in the middle. The VJ panels are “surround by laminex” style and I’ve got 3, 90cmx120cm panels to cover the space. They’re 9mm deep. I’ve included pics of what the kitchen looks like, where the panels would go (shaded), as well as inspiration pic and info on the product. Looking to get the task done on Saturday 9 march and will have the air con pumping if it’s hot! Tasker to supply all tools, fixings. Painted panels supplied.

Awesome job and very neat. The VJ paneling on the kitchen looks great and gives the space a whole new look. Thanks again. Highly recommended!!
