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. 


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.

B&B accomodation in Cambridge for carpentry


Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, CB1

29th May 2018

I offer B&B accomodation in my home for repairing my back garden gates. They are made of wood and in need of a little readjustment, strengthening with extra screws and water-resistant treatment. We can negotiate the length of the stay when you see the work. I would guess 2-5 days max. I have a nice single room that also has an extra mattress under the bed, so it can accomodate 2 people. The best dates for me are between the 13th and 17th of June. Thank you.

Chris is a hard working and versatile builder. He did a number of carpentry, plumbing and painting jobs for me around the house. Chris works fast and to a high standard. I will invite him to carry out more work in the future. Many thanks, Chris!
