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.

Vj panelling installation


Glen Alpine, New South Wales, Australia

29th Jan 2023

Hi .. I have 3 bedroom walls I’d like to install Vj panelling to. The walls are cement and painted. The walk measurements are: Bed 1: 2.6m H x 4.1m W (two PowerPoints on this wall) Bed 2: 2.6m H x 3.4m W (no power points) Bed 3: 2.6m H x 3.1m W (no power points) Would you be able to pick up Vj panels from my local Bunnings after I order and pay for them? The rooms have all been freshly painted. No need to paint the Vj panels as I’ll do that myself. I do require a professional finish (paintable caulking). No timeframe on this job. It’s on my list of things to do. Can be available two business days a week as I work flexibly. Also I am happy to be your helper throughout (assist in carrying tools, be on hand with installation etc). I have other tasks I required done at home (bench seats made in bedroom and dining room) so am looking for a reliable, reasonably priced person who can also do joinery. Thanks. Kellie
