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.

Build me a bench that is 420cm long, 40cm deep, and 45cm high


New Cross Gate, Greater London

28th Feb 2023

EXPERIENCED CARPTENTERS AND JOINERS ONLY I am looking to have a long bench with open shelf storage made to fit along a wall. The previous owners did not tile the whole floor, leaving a gap that the bench will cover. Due to the specific measurements, I believe the bench would need to be bespoke-made rather than anything "off the shelf," as it may not be sturdy enough to support people's weight. I am looking for a bench that is 420 cm long, 40 cm deep, and 45 cm high. The design should be simple and basic, yet sturdy enough to support people's weight when seated in the central part. The ends of the bench would likely be used more as shelves than as a bench. I have attached photos of the wall in question and a sketch of the design I have in mind. The placement of the shelves in my drawing is not set in stone, and I am open to suggestions. I would prefer mainly open shelves with one concealed part, possibly at the end with the plugs. The only required measurement thus far is that the shelves be at least 30 cm high to accommodate books. - Due date: Flexible
