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.

Install skirting boards in 4 bedroom house


Wyee NSW, Australia

I am looking for an experienced handy-person to install pine skirting boards throughout my house. The bedrooms have carpet and the rest of the house is hybrid plank flooring. The skirting boards are Primed FJ Pine, Bullnose 42x11mm 2.7m long (see image) from Bunnings and will be painted, ready to be installed. I have had a quote before and told it would take 2 days, but have attached the layout of the house so you can make your own estimate. Don't take the measurements as being TOO accurate as this was a real-estate agent drawing. I would like the job to be completed in the first week of December if possible but am flexible with timing. When you bid, please tell me your expectations around when you can do the job. Thank you! I look forward to hearing from you. ps the person who gave me a quote was offered full time work, so pulled out of doing handy-person work and wasn't able to complete the work at my place, there was no actual problem with the job - Due date: Flexible

Jake was a great communicator who did his work with skill and a lovely demeanour. Highly recommend.
