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.

Need help build and installment of new plant box for balcony wall.

£800

South Woodford, Greater London, E18

31st Oct 2021

You'll need materials to build this, I can provide dimensions ahead of time. It's approx 3m x 30cm x 30cm and will be a simple design. The box itself needs to be secured to brickwork. It was previously secured to brick work at either end but due to degredation id now suggest its secured to the brick and slatework the box will be sitting on. Lining the inside of the box to protect the wood in future is preferred. Ill paint the box myself once installed. I expect this is probably about a days work. - Due date: Needs to be done on Saturday, 13th Nov 2021

Friendly chap, good work. Thank you very much

£100

South Woodford, Greater London, E18

17th Apr 2021

I've got 2 side panels that aren't vertically straight and my fridge can't slide into its space properly. I'd like one of the panels shortened to create enough space for the fridge to slide in, a few screws put in to prevent the cabinet from falling due to weight. Before starting we need to take the fridge out of that space and it seems stuck. Thanks

Cover small gap in wooden facia on house.

£45

Charing Cross, Greater London

10th Jun 2020

There is a small gap in the wooden facia of the top part of the house. The size of the gap is apprx 10cm x 20cm. Need to screw a piece of wood on there to cover the gap. There are two gaps. So two pieces of wood need to be fitted. Doesn’t matter how it looks as it’s just temporary to stop the pigeons getting inside the gap. You will need a double extension ladder to reach it because it is at the top of the house. I don’t care what it looks like, only needs to cover the gap. This is only a 20 minute job, but you must have a double extension ladder, and this can only be done before 11am or at 5/6pm See the pictures.

Fantastic guy. Would use anytime
