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.

Carpentry skills needed! Bespoke drawers made for inside a wardrobe

£300

Wanstead Flats, Greater London

6th Mar 2022

I recently had 3 bespoke wardrobes fitted in my bedroom, two for hanging and the middle one for drawers. Unfortunately we haven't been able to build the drawers to fit inside the cupboard (due to life getting in the way) so I wanted to get a quote to see how much something like that would cost. The cupboard is roughly 92cm wide and 32cm deep and we would be looking to have 5/6 drawers. - Due date: Flexible

Bespoke bedroom cupboards/storage

£2,000

Forest Gate, Greater London, E7

14th Mar 2019

We'd like to fit out our second bedroom which is a small room (2990x2282). We ideally want to have a single, ottoman style daybed built with storage inside. This would be very simple, essentially a box base with a hinged lid that a mattress can sit on top of. In addition to this we have in mind a tall narrow cupboard and a couple of cupboards up high above the bed with open hanging space below as well as another ottoman style storage chest. We would like all exposed sides to have a smooth sprayed paint finish. The cupboard doors would have rattan cane panels.

Replace the felt on my shed roof (felt supplied)

£100

Wanstead Flats, Greater London

30th Jun 2022

Half the felt on our shed has peeled off (and torn in places), so it needs removing and replacing with new felt. I'm ordering a roll, so this will just need someone to come with a ladder and fix it properly. I'm not totally sure how you'd reach the middle of the shed where the nails need hammering, so you might need to being a couple of planks of wood (or something) to run the width of the shed that you can walk on. I can send photos to make this clearer. - Due date: Flexible

Conor did a really great job fixing our shed roof. He was very diligent on quality, and was super helpful in selecting the right materials etc.
