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.

Woodworker To Build Custom Design


Sydney NSW, Australia

4th Dec 2022

Ignore the suggested price. We are looking for quotes. Hey All, Looking for a woodworker to create a basic prototype. The prototype is a rectangular base (about 1 m long and 40 cm wide. It has a 'U' shaped wooden beam attached to it perpendicular to the surface. This wooden beam will be used to screw 4 wall mounted food dispensers and an iPad into. I have attached a really really basic document below that has the design that we are looking for. I am in the process of getting a proper 3D design made. Can provide measurements on request. Please provide: 1. A guide on price. 2. Some examples of your previous work. 3. A timeline you'd like to work to. Thanks, Jack. - Due date: Flexible

Cabinetry work +


Sydney NSW, Australia

3rd Dec 2022

The location is Macquarie street in the CBD. The proposed scope of work comes in two parts. The second part may be postponed if it's out of budget. Part 1- A cabinet in the corner of a suite. Approximately 2.22m wide, 0.70 deep, 2.4 from floor to ceiling. Probably 3 or 4 doors. The purpose of the cabinet is to hide a small kitchenette. I'm thinking of installing a cheap & cheerful IKEA product, but if you can fabricate a solution I can afford, I'm sure it would be better. It needs a sink, a small bench, a space for a fridge, power, and some shelving/storage. Whatever happens, it will need to be plumbed in. Drain & water supply is in the correct location. It will also need a power supply from an existing GPO that is & 3.5m away & 200/270mm off the floor. This will involve routing & patchwork or a conduit. Part 2- A partition stud wall with a glass panel door. This will provide a waiting room/area at the entrance to the suite. 1.94 wide, 2.4 from floor to ceiling. Please let me know if you're interested. Many thanks, - Due date: Flexible
