"Great work. "

Finish install of garden shed

$120

"Ian was great, can't thank him enough. He put up our shed, knew exactly what to do and when some parts came faulty he went and bought new ones to complete the job. He even cleaned up and made sure there was nothing sharp left that our kiddies to step on.. Thanks Ian. "

Garden shed installation

$75

"Awesome Airtasker!!!"

Set up shelving in garage

$100

"The task was completed to the agreed time and standard. I was most impressed with the outcome. The shed design was unusual and some lateral thought was required to fit it in the designated area. Ian did not work to the clock, he took pride in his work and I have no hesitation in recommending him for any task he seeks to undertake."

Absco shed assembly

$100

"Quick response to my add and fast turnaround. Difficult job to make perfect but happy with the result, as have had a cabinet maker knock it back due to nature of the job. Rory was easy to deal with, good communication and happy to change anything I required. I would recommend Rory as he is a very capable polite industrious young man."

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. 

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.

Cut 900 x 1200 x 9mm sheet of MDF into 12 pieces

$50

Manly QLD, Australia

9th Aug 2021

Wynnum-Manly area, preferring someone within 20 km. I have a sheet of MDF that I need cut into 12 pieces (4 at about 297 x 420 mm, 8 at about 210 x 297. I'd like beveled edges on all sides of each piece, 3mm up from the base, 45 degrees (see attached sketches). Easy pocket money for someone with a table / miter saw and a bit of skill, and this shouldn't take too long. Repeat work is very probably. I will supply the MDF and can deliver it to be cut, on a weekday evening or weekend, and pick up after. This batch is just for testing purposes, so exact measurements aren't essential - as long as it's within a few mm of the stated sizes it should be fine. Straight cuts are pretty important, though. No further sanding needed, just the cuts.

Excellent work, better than I had hoped. A likeable, communicative, easygoing guy. John has delivered far more than expected. Looking forward to many more projects together!

Destroy and remove rotting timber deck and lattice

$500

Wynnum QLD, Australia

16th Aug 2021

Hi there! We have a low timber deck at the back of our property that has begun to rot, and so we would like to have the area cleared so that we can build something new and more durable! We are seeking somebody who has the skills to destroy the deck and built in seating / planter boxes, whilst leaving the attached shed intact and then removing all of the debris via our side gate (1.5m wide walkway down side of property) The deck area is approx 9m x 6m including the front rounded area. The wood of the deck is really weak so shouldn’t be too difficult to destroy We would also like the latticing removed off the fence that was put up around the deck area. For reference, it is approx 30m from front to rear of property. Looking forward to working with you!

Great work from Glenn. Hooked in and got the job done as needed. Would use again
