Why book a local carpenter through Airtasker?

Carpentry plays a massive part in our lives. From the chairs we sit on to the homes we live in, so much of what we interact with has gone through the hands of a carpenter at one point.

Carpenters can help with projects of all sizes. If you’re building an extension or adding a carport to your home, an experienced carpenter can create a frame that’s built to last and meets all council regulations.

On the other hand, if you’re looking at the finer details of your home, a carpenter can be of great assistance too. From small detailing like replacing skirting boards to refurbishing your dining table and chairs, hiring a skilled labourer can make all the difference.

With Airtasker, you can quickly and easily find the best carpenter for your job. Simply tell us what you’re looking for, where you’re based and what your budget is, and we’ll connect you with the people with the most relevant carpentry skills in your area. You can then browse profiles, read reviews and get in touch with your favourite craftsman to get your project underway!

Quick offers

If you want to get started straight away, Airtasker’s system provides just that. With us, you’ll find offers coming in thick and fast – perfect for those emergency repairs.

Get the best carpenters in your area

You’ll be able to see how well carpenters have worked on other jobs because of Airtasker’s easy-to-read rating system

Find insured carpenters

All work on Airtasker is insured – whether it’s your roof, your walls or on the ground – so you can rest easy.

Top Carpentry related questions

What are some common carpentry tasks?

Carpenters work with wood in all manner of ways. From timber framing for a house or carport to the finishing touches on furniture, carpenters are hired for jobs large and small.

What qualifications should a carpenter have?

In Australia, certified carpenters will have normally completed a Certificate III (or above) in Carpentry and Joinery, or a similar course through TAFE, and an apprenticeship. You may find that older carpenters learned their skills through a traineeship.

Do I need a specialist for carpentry work?

Not all carpenters offer the same services. An experienced cabinet maker may not be the best choice if you want timber framing done, while a decking expert may not have the credentials to refurbish your furniture. Picking someone with experience in your field is a great way to get high-

Can a carpenter do multiple jobs in one visit?

While some carpenters have specific areas of expertise, you can employ someone to do a number of small woodworking jobs in one visit. This can be the same job in a number of rooms or different jobs throughout the house. Remember though that some carpentry jobs require more than one day to complete.

What other names do carpenters work under?

Depending on their specialty and level of training, you may find that a carpenter comes under a different name. From specific tasks such as cabinet maker to more general terms like artisan, joiner or woodworker, there are plenty of variations for carpentry workers.

How much does a carpenter cost?

The average price of carpentry services on Airtasker is $250, but depending on the service you need, this can easily range from $120 to $450.

Do I need a specialist licence for carpentry?

For certain types of carpentry tasks, you may need to enquire as to what specialist licenses may be required to undertake your task as this can vary. Please make sure that you confirm that a Tasker has the relevant licence and insurance before accepting an offer.

What does a carpenter 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 can help you with many different tasks. 

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 focussed 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.

Ceiling cornice around cupboard required

Wheelers Hill, Victoria, Australia

7th May 2021

We have a cupboard in our laundry that has new panelling and now the cornice needs replacing. One side will have to go over the wood we have inserted there (totally understand it will have a step and are happy with that). The other side will need to be halved I think?? We have the cornice, just need it cut and fitted. Happy to paint it ourselves afterwards.

Wayne did an awesome job with a tricky bit of corner plastering. Communication was easy and he was both punctual and efficient with his time. Highly recommend

Floor levelling/ screed

$123

Subiaco WA, Australia

7th May 2021

Note - budget isn’t what I’m expecting to spend, please provide quote for 4hr labour and we can adjust later if it is going to take longer :) I need a tiler concreter or handyman of some sort to even out the slab in our house. We will be loose laying hybrid flooring over top. Part of the living area was an extension so there’s a big crack through the middle, at one end the two slabs are almost level so it’s mainly the crack to smooth out, gradually the extended area falls to the other end where it is maybe 20mm difference. Need the gap sealed and the floor level Please quote for labour with an estimate / hourly rate as I will buy the levelling product you need to save having to guess how much to allow for materials. Crack is 4490mm in length. The smaller slightly sunken slab piece in photo is 1640mm wide. I would prefer the job to be done sometime between 15th-17th. 18th or 19th possible if necessary. Thanks!

Vasiliy did a fantastic job of levelling our floor, went above & beyond what was asked to make sure it was done to a high standard. Meticulous workmanship - wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him. Thanks again!

I need someone to remove the wooden bench top from my IKEA Tornviken kitchen island. This is because I'm trying to sell the island but it doesn't fit out of the door with the benchtop on! It was assembled with an impact drill, so you will need to bring one with you to remove it.
