The quality of his workmanship can not be faulted and we are thrilled with the end result that went far beyond our expectation. Darren pays attention to detail and takes the upmost pride in his work.

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 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. 


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.

Campervan bed extension


Balmoral QLD, Australia

15th May 2022

Looking for a handy man to create a bed extension for my existing campervan bed. The bed is currently 1500mm length and 1400mm width. I'd like an extension to be added that gives the bed an additional 330mm length (so it can be made up to 6foot length) I would like the extension to be on some sort of hinge system so it can fold up onto the original bed so the battery box and pull out cupboard located under the bed can be accessed. cheers Kerrie - Due date: Flexible

Sanding & Coating Wooden Benchtop in a Van.


Fortitude Valley QLD 4006, Australia

15th Apr 2022

Hi, We have a superhigh top LWB campervan that needs its interior wooden benchtop sanded back and recoated to a lighter colour. We tried doing this ourselves and messed it up. The varnish that we had for it wasn't the right colour. I have attached a couple of pics of before and after and you can see its quite orangy now. Where we keep the van isn't really the best place to get the job done unless you have a cordless sander and don't mind working on an angle. We would be happy to bring it out to you if you have a better location to do the work. I have a pot of clearcoat with no tint added. I think this job will require a trip to Bunnings to get the right coat. Flexible with the date that we've put. Hope you can help!

Chris has incredible attention to detail and care in the work he did for us.
