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.

Cabinet maker


Ringwood East VIC, Australia

1st Jul 2024

Hi guys: My house is in Ringwood East, I had a renovation done 2 years ago but still have quite few things needs to be completed, one of the issue is this wall showing in picture 1 and 2. I want to leave space for the piano, and make full use of this wall and build a cabinet to have more book shelves, and also (preferably) have place for a small reading table. I would like a quote for 2 options: 1. a standard option using mdf and other standard materials. 2. using somewhat better materials (ie. Maple, birch, walnut, pine...which ever is more reasonable, I want durability so it last long rather than caring about looks) I have funds ready and prepared to go ahead straight away, I understand it's hard to come up with accurate quote so I only need a ballpark figure or a range of pricing. Regards ie. I really love the HEMNES look from IKEA: https://www.ikea.com/au/en/p/hemnes-storage-combination-w-doors-drawers-red-stained-light-brown-stained-s89494833/ however it doesn't really cover my needs. That's why I choose to get someone to make custom cabinets instead.

Very nice gentleman, came to our place very quickly and great communication

Replace a rotten timber plank and a broken cement sheeting


Knoxfield VIC, Australia

21st May 2024

Not sure how much it will cost... One side of the wall of the garage is cement sheeting fixed on timber frames. The base timber plank which lies flat on the concrete floor is rotten. The bottom edge of the cement sheeting is supposed to be fixed on this base plank, but, because the plank is rotten, the bottom edge is not fixed. So the storm blew part of the sheet away. You need to do 1. Replace the rotten timber plank lying on the concrete floor. You can tell me the dimensions of the plank and I can buy it for you. 2. Replace the cement sheeting with Fiber Cement Board.

Excellent work and communications! Will hire again!
