What does a carpenter 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 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 a small window aircon


Carina Heights QLD 4152, Australia

14th Jan 2021

Downward sliding window. For a 1.7kw aircon, it is small, My guess is you need to cut a piece of wood for it to sit on and a piece of board or wood to fill the remaining gap in the window. Should be fairly straight forward. I don't have tools or resources.

Communative, friendly , did job fast and without problem !

Remove shelves on wall and replace with sheeting


Tarragindi QLD, Australia

25th Nov 2020

Hey after an experienced tradie to remove wooden shelves attached to a wall, it’s going to rip the wall so we need sheeting (fibro sheeting I think) replace and then it plastered so we can paint. You will need your own materials for all of this including being able to source the sheeting, we will cover the extra costs of this of course.

Did a great job removing fixed shelves from our wall and fixing and patching everything. Thanks!
