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. 

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.

Replace decking


Camberwell VIC, Australia

4th Dec 2022

I have decking which has become unsafe and needs redoing. Along with a small gate & side fence. The decking is about 3.3. x 8 m. This is our thinking for the job however we are open to recommendations: We are wanting the decking replaced with mixed hardwood along with the gate and side fence. We want all stumps repaired underneath (as rotted) with a softwood (as cheaper then hardwood) and painted to seal. The decking will need to be extended longer then current as currently there is a gap between the end of the house and the decking. We are happy to remove the current decking if needed (pending quote to have it removed). We want a professional carpenter/ builder with experience building decking. - Due date: Before Tuesday, 31 January 2023
