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.

Remove piece of wood alongside an external wall (revised task)

I need to have three pieces of wood removed, which runs alongside the wall of the house. This is approximately 25 feet (in total) length x 3 ins x 4 ins, and can be sawn through (see photos). The piece of wood is not screwed to the wall, and can be sawn through at the points that are marked. It is attached to the main body of the scaffold under decking boards, which will remain in place. The decking boards have been removed, and there is no need for any further adjustment to them, or the rest of the scaffold. - Due date: Before Monday, 4 December 2023

Renovate airing cupboard


South Hackney, Greater London

31st Aug 2023

Hi I have an airing cupboard, and I would like to extend the slat shelving backwards, into the space where there used to be a hot water cylinder. This will require the extension of the side support wooden rails back about 45 cm, as well as the addition of three shelving slats approximately 43x45 cm. These can rest behind the current slats, and do not need to be attached to them. I can provide more exact measurements of the sizes if helpful. I would also like to have the side and back walls made good. I can send further photos if you’re interested. Many thanks, Adam Victoria Park E9 - Due date: Flexible
