Why book a local carpenter through Airtasker?

Carpentry plays a massive part in our lives. From the chairs we sit on to the homes we live in, so much of what we interact with has gone through the hands of a carpenter at one point.

Carpenters can help with projects of all sizes. If you’re building an extension or adding a carport to your home, an experienced carpenter can create a frame that’s built to last and meets all council regulations.

On the other hand, if you’re looking at the finer details of your home, a carpenter can be of great assistance too. From small detailing like replacing skirting boards to refurbishing your dining table and chairs, hiring a skilled labourer can make all the difference.

With Airtasker, you can quickly and easily find the best carpenter for your job. Simply tell us what you’re looking for, where you’re based and what your budget is, and we’ll connect you with the people with the most relevant carpentry skills in your area. You can then browse profiles, read reviews and get in touch with your favourite craftsman to get your project underway!

Top Carpentry related questions

What are some common carpentry tasks?

Carpenters work with wood in all manner of ways. From timber framing for a house or carport to the finishing touches on furniture, carpenters are hired for jobs large and small.

What qualifications should a carpenter have?

In Australia, certified carpenters will have normally completed a Certificate III (or above) in Carpentry and Joinery, or a similar course through TAFE, and an apprenticeship. You may find that older carpenters learned their skills through a traineeship.

Do I need a specialist for carpentry work?

Not all carpenters offer the same services. An experienced cabinet maker may not be the best choice if you want timber framing done, while a decking expert may not have the credentials to refurbish your furniture. Picking someone with experience in your field is a great way to get high-

Can a carpenter do multiple jobs in one visit?

While some carpenters have specific areas of expertise, you can employ someone to do a number of small woodworking jobs in one visit. This can be the same job in a number of rooms or different jobs throughout the house. Remember though that some carpentry jobs require more than one day to complete.

What other names do carpenters work under?

Depending on their specialty and level of training, you may find that a carpenter comes under a different name. From specific tasks such as cabinet maker to more general terms like artisan, joiner or woodworker, there are plenty of variations for carpentry workers.

How much does a carpenter cost?

The average price of carpentry services on Airtasker is $250, but depending on the service you need, this can easily range from $120 to $450.

Do I need a specialist licence for carpentry?

For certain types of carpentry tasks, you may need to enquire as to what specialist licenses may be required to undertake your task as this can vary. Please make sure that you confirm that a Tasker has the relevant licence and insurance before accepting an offer.

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 plasterwork. 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.

Burn marks of varying sizes (penny to pound coin-size) on grey laminate floor with patterned wood-grain.

I had scattered burn marks on laminate floor. Michael walked in and knew exactly how to fix them. He talked to me all about the type of flooring, what the problem areas might be and how to avoid them. I was unbelievably impressed with the quality of work. The end product is indistinguishable from the original flooring. Absolutely stellar work. Cannot recommend him enough. If you have any issue with flooring, Michael is your man.

Kitchen fitting and Plastering

£500

Isle Of Dogs, Greater London

21st May 2021

Hi, I am searching for someone who can remove and dispose an old integrated freezer and an old integrated fridge, guide me on the purchase of a new 50/50 fridge-freezer which fits in the cabinet, install the new 50/50 fridge-freezer (maybe integrated, maybe freestanding, depends on your suggestions, and perhaps install a dishwasher as well and potentially replace all kitchen cabinet doors. The scope depends on our possibilities, but the appliances need to be changed for sure. And the ceiling area of 80cmx60cm needs plastering fixed, as the area in the ceiling is broken through at the moment unfortunately. So we need a new plaster board and potentially place some material under the foam in the loft above before we put a new plaster board. The plaster board needs to be painted (white) as well. Please feel free to ask me any questions. Thank you

Ade did a fine job, very efficient and reliable. Great guy!
