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.

Demolish 1 small shelf wall in a walk-in-wardrobe


Glen Waverley VIC, Australia

22nd Oct 2022

I’m looking to get rid of 1 “open shelving walls” in my walk-in-wardrobe to make space for new wardrobes. The shelf wall is approx 3.8 metres in length in total and 0.47 metres wide. Would be amazing if you are able to dispose of the wastes. Also need help emptying the space at first by moving everything elsewhere in the house. I anticipate that this could take a whole day - from emptying the room to the cleanup. The payment amount is negotiable depending on the scope of work to be completed I’m flexible in terms of when it will be completed, but sooner the better. This coming Monday and/or Thursday would work well! Many thanks, Irene - Due date: Needs to be done on Thursday, 27 October 2022

Im estimating 12 to 14 hours in total.
