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. 


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.

Carpentry to alter a bed


Camberwell VIC, Australia

15th Jun 2021

I am wanting a king single bed adjusted to make it smaller so I can fit a desk in my son's room. Reduce the height of the bedhead to 1 panel instead of 2 (so it can sit in front of a window). Trim and reposition the legs so instead of being on the outside of the bed they sit underneath the frame in order to reduce the length of the bed. Legs are attached with bolts.

We are so happy with Frank’s work and his professional attitude that we would be hiring him for more handyman and assembly jobs for our renovation. Top bloke… highly recommended for all flat pack assembly, carpentry and handyman jobs.

Shed install


Hawthorn East VIC 3123, Australia

20th Mar 2021

Hi! We're looking to get this shed installed in Hawthorn East (need some kind of base as well- either concrete or othetwise) as current location just has dirt. Can you help? Might need some shelves installed as well inside. https://www.bunnings.com.au/absco-sheds-3-0-x-0-78-x-1-95m-ezislider-double-sliding-door-garden-shed-woodland-grey_p0091221

Damian could quite possibly be the best shed installer in Melbourne!! We purchased an Absco shed from Bunnings (3m x 0.78m) and Damian did an excellent job of installing it. He created a very sturdy base for the shed and ensured it was all bolted down and safe. He has so much experience installing sheds that he also uses his own screws etc to ensure a sturdier and more aesthetically pleasing finish. I wish I could share share a pic as we had such a narrow space and Damian did an amazing job of installing it nearly into the space. Couldn't recommend him more if you're looking to get your shed installed - he is worth every dollar!!!

Wardrobe Doors (Supply & Install)


Kew VIC, Australia

13th Jun 2021

We are looking for a cabinet maker to supply and installation of 10no. wardrobe doors total doors to be fitted across 2 bedrooms. Details: - material: laminate (laminex or equivalent) - colour: white - door handles: flat pull type or powdercoated slimline handle (to be supplied - or we can source if easier) - architraves have been installed overlapping the edges of the wardrobe carcass so for the doors at each end (adjacent to the architraves), we will need offset hinges that can offset the door (so that it doesn't clash with the architrave when it opens) and will need to be fractionally less wide to accommodate the architrave. This is for the end doors only. - approximate door size is 500mm W x 2300mm H (end door sizes will differ slightly). A site measure will be required to confirm exact sizing In terms of timing, we understand there will be lead times for materials and fabrication. It is really an ASAP type thing so as soon as you're available to come site measure we'd be ready.

Create a temporary tarp wall for car port


Doncaster VIC, Australia

Just moved into a new rental property with a carport with one side exposed. Would love to have some sort of temporary tarp walling installed to protect my vehicle.

Quote fence build decking replacement and other


Templestowe VIC 3106, Australia

18th Mar 2021

Hi all, I’m currently in need of a very tiny area of decking replaced, I also need roughly a 20 meter timber fence replaced, as well as a few repairs such as a bin drawer fixed that runners have broken, a few pailings replaced on a cubby house, some sleepers pushed back that have come away and a few other small jobs. I also need a landscaper and a painter also..so an all in one would be a miracle but for now the above will help me..I haven’t listed full price as I am not sure whether one person can help me with all of the above, but I’d be happy for you to come and take a look and we can arrange a price and get started immediately..

I am so grateful Vernon offered to complete my task...a quote for various jobs in the home turned into everything I needed being completed within 3 days!! He replaced my decking, fixed my French doors, replaced grout in my bathrooms, fixed my bin drawer in the kitchen and quite a few others...Vernon is so helpful, and takes so much pride in his work, which makes the end result perfect! ! It looks fantastic!!! He was in constant communication as to when he would attend, and what he was going to do, he discussed the materials required, and did not stop all day. I will definitely be contacting him again for anything my family or I may need. Thank you so much🙏🏼

Strip, sand and stain deck


Surrey Hills VIC 3127, Australia

22nd Feb 2021

Looking to get my backyard decking area redone. Currently there's a dark stain on the wood (Merbau) that I want to replace with a matte finish oil. From experience with the same deck in the front yard that has turned out well, I need the following: - strip existing deck with Deck Stripper; - high pressure wash; - sanding to remove obvious remnant paint; - 2 coats of matte finish natural decking oil. The dimensions of the deck (see photos for reference) are: - around pool (25m2) - undercover (25m2) - pool side (7m2) To note: - BBQ/sink/fridge: only cover visible area and not move the whole thing; - pool fence base: the aluminium caps can be raised to allow stripping/sanding underneath

Performed as described, on time and to budget, and the final product is great.
