Assemble and secure a thin linen cupboard


Pip and I were very impressed with what Salar offered and then delivered. We purchased a very large good quality kitchen for a smaller space and Salar was able to redesign the kitchen to fit and make our kitchen a beautiful quality. He also designed some additional concepts for us we envisioned and went really above and beyond. Would happily recommend him and look forward to getting him back to do some more work in the future.

Replace old rangehood with new one


Sydney NSW 2000, Australia

12th Sep 2023

We need someone to initially come and look at the exising space with the old rangehood, do measurements and determine what new rangehood will fit in the space, then buy the new rangehood for us. After that do the removal of old rangehood and installation of the new one plus any carpentry work required for the installation. The first photo shown the existing rangehood with the cabinet doors opened. The second/third photo shown the measurement of the slide out, which is 83 cm. The fourth/fifth photo shown the measurement of the longest side of the rangehood, which is 86 cm. I believe the slot in the cabinet for the rangehood cannot accommodate anything bigger than 86 cm. The short side of the rangehood is 28cm.

Scoping: Custom desk and shelves for a study nook


Surry Hills NSW, Australia

23rd Jun 2023

I have a very small room (1m wide x 1.8m deep) that I’d like to explore converting to a study nook. I’m looking for someone experienced in joinery/carpentry to visit and provide some advice on whether this is viable. This task is just for the advice and initial scoping. I will follow up with a build task based on the advice I receive. Notes: * The room has plasterboard walls on all sides. I’d like advice on whether it’s able to support a floating desk. * I’d like 2 matching shelves installed above the floating desk (see photo). * The room has a door that I’d like to get removed as part of the process, include patching the areas where the door hinges are. * I would need to get an electrician to install a power outlet (separately). Happy to answer any questions to clarify. Thanks! - Due date: Flexible

Matt provided solid ideas and options for my custom desk and shelves. Friendly, approachable and action-oriented. Thanks Matt.
