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.

Install sliding wardrobe doors


Forde ACT, Australia

3rd Apr 2022

Reposting: missing some notifications and unable to respond to previous quote. 2 Wardrobe sliding doors need to be measured, ordered and installed. Previously outward opening doors on the built in wardrobe. Additional info added: Air tasked forces me to put a price in but I am happy to take a more reasonable assessment. Am uploading a couple of photos. Currently removed the doors off the built in wardrobe as there was not enough space in the room for them to open out. So marks in current wardrobe frame that need to be patched. I am not sure if there are standard doors that can be purchased or if it is a custom measure. Approximate size of inside of frame is 205 cm high, 164 cm wide. Tracks and sliding doors need to be fitted. Open to options.

Just so easy to coordinate with. On time, good work and cleans up too.
