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.

Get in touch with carpenters such as Jamie G, Kimberley E, and Mantas J today to get a wide variety of Carpentry jobs done.

Repair kitchen island

£80

South Hackney, Greater London

12th Aug 2022

Hello - I recently bought a kitchen island from Gumtree and have built it in my kitchen. The only issue is that the table top (oak) is bowed and does not rest flat. This means that the central 2 x screws cannot fix the island into the console. I am looking for someone who can straighten a slightly bowed/curved kitchen worktop. - Due date: Flexible

Build a cabinet and shelves

£200

Hackney, Greater London, E8

11th Jun 2022

I got the cabinet and shelves pictured second hand. Everything is in pieces and I’d like it built into my living room alcove. The cabinet isn’t one piece of furniture- it’s got sides, a top and the doors (no bottom and no back) and needs to be all put together and built into/secured into the alcove. We have carpet in this room so not sure the best way to do this hence seeking help of someone who knows what they’re doing! The shelves are actually one solid piece and will then hopefully sit on top of the cabinet once that’s secure. - Due date: Flexible

Table varnish

£100

Hi, We’ve marked this vintage table due to hot mugs touching the surface and need an affordable solution to varnish its top (the table is rented). The table is deployable and the measurement is 87 x 195 cm, deployed. You can see that the varnish has been long needed as the middle of the table presents a darker colour than the outer parts, exposed to the sun. Please let me know if you can send us a quote. Many thanks in advance! Best, Alexia - Due date: Flexible
