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.

Joinery work required - creating storage area under the bed

£460

Notting Hill, Greater London, W11

20th Feb 2022

I have a platform which is the continuation of what has been circled in the photo. I need someone to help to openit up, and create some new storage area under the bed. I suspect the platform was built to cover the pipes that connect to the bathroom. However, I have no idea how big those pipes are, and we won't know until we open up the cover (should be easy with a chisel). I want to make use of the empty space by creating one or two big drawers (depending on how much empty space). I won't provide material, but I will cover the cost of materials should you provide me with a separate quote. Tasks: - Prepare the material required - removal part of the existing base, - creating new storage (drawers) - Protecting the timber floor - Stick fabric to the platform so it looks more like a bed frame (base) Due date: Before Sunday, 6th Mar 2022

Sofa bed legs repaired

£80

Notting Hill, Greater London, W11

6th Dec 2021

I have an old sofa bed (basic design) which needs to be repaired. The 4 legs are becoming loose from the frame, which causes it to drop occasionally. Note. Due to the small flat, we cannot purchase a big sofa, so we opted for this basic sofa for £350 in the sale from Made.com. Not prepared to pay too much for repairing the 4 legs and frame for reinforced status... may as well purchase a new one. We were looking to see if this could be a solution hopefully last a bit longer. I hope you understand, if you can fix this on a fixed agreed fee with confidence. Please get in touch. Thanks. - Due date: Flexible

Thank you, Alex! He was great at the task, very professional. He quickly realised what the issue was and fixed it. In addition, he is a great person to converse with. In case of need, I will definitely contact him again - I really recommend Alex.
