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.

Build steps in garden


Turramurra NSW, Australia

30th Oct 2022

Supply and install steps/stairs to replace a sloped walkway down to the backyard, as shown in the photos. The slope is approximately 1.2m rise. The top and bottom don't need landing areas. This walkway has been slowly eroding over the years and it is slippery when wet, so we want to make it safer in the steep section. We don't use this area much, so we want to keep the solution as low cost as possible. For example, these could be timber stairs, or timber sleepers with gravel, or flat rock steps with rocks available in our backyard, etc. We are looking for some recommendations and are open to your suggestions. Please get in touch with your thoughts and quote for both labour and materials.

I needed outdoor stairs built; a simple yet sturdy and safe solution. Other taskers were recommending higher end, flashy, and pricey solutions, but Darby listened to my needs, and built exactly what I was looking for! :) He was also highly responsive, answered all my questions quickly, AND he came out within a couple of days to get it all built. I highly recommend Darby and would not hesitate to use his services again.

Carpenter - Build me a bedframe for my toddler


North Willoughby NSW 2068, Australia

19th Oct 2022

I need a carpenter to build a floor bed frame to fit a queen sized mattress. Dimensions of the mattress are: 203cm (L) x 153cm (W) x 31cm (H). All materials will also be paid for, I just need a quote/receipt. Please see reference picture. - Due date: Flexible - preferably in the next month.

All I sent was the mattress dimensions and a couple of pictures and Will made up a toddler bed frame in less than a day for me - it’s perfect! I was looking at a 5 week lead time to order one of these online, so I was really surprised at the quick turnaround. All of the sharp edges have been sanded down so it’s perfectly safe, very excited to be able to get the toddler out of our bed and into his new one. Highly recommended 🙌🏼

Reinstall of Betta shelving & minor items


Naremburn NSW, Australia

26th Nov 2022

Shelving unit was dismantled due water damage to wooden flooring. This will now be replaced with quality carpet and underlay. Two of the panels sit on the skirting board. Three panels will now sit on carpet therefore they will now be sitting at different heights. The top panel connects all to keep it stable. All the shelving and panels have been sitting flat since they have been dismantled. The three panels which sit on the floor are cut around the skirting board and will need to be cut. The two panels that sit on the skirting board will also need to be adjusted so they are level with the other three panels that sit on the floor. Summary: 1. I will need the shelving system reinstalled but some modification might be necessary. 2. Install my Dyson inside a cupboard 3. Screw two door stoppers behind two doors 4. Adjust a door latch so that it closes - Due date: Flexible
