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.

I need a single strip of wood planed

£40

Gospel Oak, Greater London

13th Feb 2019

I've got a strip of 15mm varnished plywood just over 2m long, 16cm wide, eg quite long and narrow. I need a tiny bit planed off the length edge, the amount to be planed varies - eg c.7mm at the top, down to about 1-2mm at the bottom. (see photos for reference). This is a thin sliver, but i need a good straight line, so my sanding tools are not suitable. It needs to fit into a pre-existing cavity which cannot be re-sized. A strip of masking tape is on the wood as a cutting / planing guide. I just need the tiny edge planed off, retaining the same smooth edge ideally.. Note: this is a small job and better carried out in situ at my property (London Kentish Town area) to ensure a snug fit in its intended location. thank you.

Martin is an experienced all-rounder and I would describe him as above average in terms of his skills and his application, I have no complaints at all. He turned up on time, professionally equipped and dealt with all requests politely and without fuss, this was a tricky threshold job which involved some skill, perseverance and problem-solving. Plus he took care moving around working inside my house which for me is a definite bonus. I'm happy to vouch for him.
