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. Carpenters take on a wide range of work, such as fixing areas of houses and building furniture from scratch.

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. 


Don't know what to do with all that space in your backyard? Hire a carpenter who specialises in building decks. 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

Cabinetmakers 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. Cabinetmakers 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.


Joinery services encompass the craftsmanship of creating and joining wood in workshops, distinct from on-site carpentry. These services range from bespoke projects to crafting timber buildings, emphasizing precision and passion. Joiners play a crucial role in interior woodwork, window and door production, and specialized construction, offering tailored and quality timber solutions.

Decking Repair


Stockwell, Greater London

3rd Apr 2024

I have a wood plank on my balcony decking that is broken and needs replacement. Would also consider replacing the current wood decking with aluminium decking depending on cost.

French Polish Dining Table


Stockwell, Greater London

26th Dec 2023

I have an Edwardian dining table top that needs to be stripped and French polished. It is actually the cover to a pool table and so handily the top splits into four pieces so the French polishing could be done off site. - Due date: Flexible

David did a great job - the table now looks stunning again. Highly recommended.

Shed assembly


Brixton, Greater London, SW9

6th Nov 2023

*Please let me know your available days when you can come for certain. Needs to be this week.* Need to build a wooden 5x7 "summerhouse" (shed with windows), please see photos. The instructions are easy enough. I have a cement base a little larger than 5x7 foot, in the corner of the garden, so the shed would need to be erected close to two walls. Assembly requires simple tools (drill, spirit level, screwdriver, ladder) but I don't know whether one person can do it by themself. I can help after 3pm but I'm only 5'2. Please bring your own tools. Please let me know if you have a friend who can help you and whether you can bring the tools required.

Paul did a really good job constructing the shed in a tight space and with poor instructions from the shed company. Also very understanding when he/we found out that the shed company had sent a wrong panel, which meant that he couldn't complete the job and had to come back to complete the job when the correct part was delivered. I appreciated that he was transparent with things and also gave advice. Thanks a lot Paul!
