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. 

Decking

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.

Cutting wooden pieces of my IKEA loft bed

£50

South Lambeth, Greater London, SW8

30th Sep 2021

I have a double IKEA loft bed that needs some modifications to suit my room, which has a relatively low ceiling. The legs (See markings) need to be cut off by about 35cm. Similarly, the ladder needs to lose a step or two. Another thing I need is for the ladder to be installed across the width of the bed (See arrow in picture), rather than the length as provided by the. For this, the wooden pieces in the frame need to be cut off and holes need to be drilled accordingly to fit the nails provided for ladder installation. By the way, it has not been installed yet, so all the work needs to be done on separate pieces. I am intending to install it by myself once all the work is done. If you could let me know how much the works would cost, that would be wonderful. Thanks!
