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.

Urgent Kitchen: levelling units for new worktops


Clapham Common, Greater London, SW4

4th Mar 2024

I am having my kitchen worktops replaced with quartz worktops, and in order to do so, the kitchen units need levelling, and some need securing to the wall. The worktop company have just come out with their laser measure to say they cannot measure/fit the worktops as they are at the moment. Kitchen units are an L shape approx 3m x 3m and utility units is one length of 3m. There is some front to back slope and some lengthway slope also. I’m desperate to not have to replace the units, but they need levelling to be within 3mm of level left to right. Laser level likely needed. Let me know if you can help!

Fantastic! Would highly recommend Josh to other people - the work was completed to an exceptional standard - very accurately and neatly

Someone to put together a desk that has been broken (metal bent)


Clapham Park, Greater London

1st Feb 2024

The metal bar that holds the top of the table of the electric workstation has bent in the middle so the old screw holes do not align, the ends pieces that hold the table in place have also expanded due to the bend in the middle and we can not slot the 2 metal pieces back in place. This holds up the table top. The legs are fine and are not bent. The electrics of the table works perfectly fine and does not need fixing. * The metal part of the table is hard to bend back- it is very solid - we need someone to put new nails based on the bend of the table and come up with a solution (either making new brackets using wood for the end pieces) so that the table can be put in screwed on. - Due date: Flexible

17th Jun 2023

Garden decking repair Door repair with minor touch Repaint Basic other minor things before new tenants move in Exact details as requested are as follows: Happy to negotiate the price further. 1. Decking in garden - floorboards are wobbly/sticking up, wood is rotting in some places. 2. The wood on the bifold doors from the 2nd bedroom/office could do with treating to prevent decay. 3. There is some mould in the bathroom above the shower and window. 4. The dishwasher cabinet cover in the kitchen is peeling off. 5. The front bedroom windows have some paint stains and could do with some attention. There's also one window that is not frosted though I think we should be able to sort that ourselves. 6. The gate in the garden could do with a lock that can be accessed from both sides. Also the wood on the gate is decaying so may be worth considering replacing the gate. 7. The planter outside has a panel sticking out. - Due date: Flexible
