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. 

Decking

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.

There is already a concrete slab for it to be installed on. The shed is due for delivery on 20th Nov so installation on 21st or as close as possible.

Cut, sand and deliver 9 mdf shelves

$110

Potts Point NSW, Australia

18th Oct 2020

I need 9 pieces of board (measuring 740mm x 275mm) cut from 9mm mdf, quickly sanded down on the edges to take away any splinters, delivered to Potts Point. The type of MDF I want to use is the following: CustomWood MDF 1200 x 900 x 9mm Standard MDF Panel at 19$ a board from Bunnings - Item no: 0590084. This task includes: - Providing the wood (the cost of materials is included in the price) - Accurately cutting it to size (it needs to fit inside a cabinet) - Sanding down the edges - Delivering to Potts Point. I'm not precious about where the mdf comes from. If you have a spare sheet laying around at home as long as it's the same type of stuff (mdf, 9mm) and in newish shape (not waterdamaged, stained and is reasonably clean) it's good to use. You also don't need to install these boards for me. I am envisioning delivery as meeting you on the street with a trolley, unloading the boards and me quickly going through with a tape measure to make sure it's accurate.

I can't recommend Steve enough. Great communication, speedy and amazing quality of work. Am more than happy to work with him again!
