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.

Hi all, I need a new truss and slats replacing on a deck in Pascoe Vale. The house is due to be demolished at the end of the year but needs to pass a rental inspection this week.

Saw off part of a wooden cabinet - urgent


Pascoe Vale, Victoria, Australia

17th Jan 2023

Price negotiable as per the required effort. Our fridge has died and we need to buy a new fridge. The previous home owners had a restrictive wooden cabinet around the fridge. We want to buy a large fridge and don't want this limitation. Seeking an experienced carpenter to help saw off the side and bottom of the wooden cabinet as seen in the pics only up until the steel hinges. We want this asap as in today itself if possible. Only asking for a decent good looking solution whatever we end up doing. Thank you.

Matthew did a great job on a challenging task of modifying a cabinet to allow for a larger fridge. He had great attention to detail, showed up on time and was very courteous. Definitely recommend!
