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. Carpenters can visit a construction site or take on any work in homes that require additional labour for different projects or repairs. 

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. 


Want to improve your outdoor space? Hire a carpentry in your area to build a deck. Carpenters who work as 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 focused 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.

Build wooden platform for minivan


Christchurch 8011, New Zealand

12th Feb 2023

We would like someone to build a wooden platform for a bed in the back of our 2005 Mazda MPV. We would like the platform to extend from behind the driver's seat to the back door of the van. We need the platform to be sturdy enough to hold about 160-170 kg of weight. The only other feature we would like to add to the wooden platform is a piece of wood that can slide in and out from under the bed to be used as a stable platform to cook on. I have attached a photo below of the general idea of what we are looking for. I have also attached a photo of the general idea of the sliding surface that comes out from under the bed. This is just a rough example of what we want. We would prefer cheaper materials and a simpler build of this sliding platform though. - Due date: Before Tuesday, 21 February 2023
