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.

Source, build, install shed about 2.2x1.5, 1.8high


Yarraville Victoria, Australia

11th Apr 2021

Hi taskers, Lacking the tools and skills required, I need your help. We were looking at building a 2.2x1.5x1.8m shed like this ( but we're time poor and not willing to risk our relationship by building this together :). What we'd need from you: * Purchase/Delivery of the shed (I have access to a medium van and can purchase/pickup if needed) * Installation of shed (on cement) The shed can't go above 1.85m in height. This is for storing a bicycle, golf clubs, but nothing overly heavy/valuable. We're not fussed about metal/wood/plastic or colour. We'd consider used. Note: The Task Budget includes you purchasing all shed materials. If you'd prefer I buy the shed, tell me what to buy and tell me your labour budget.
