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.

Shelf for my wardrobe


Streatham, Greater London, SW16

11th Feb 2024

I need someone to install a shelf in my wardrobe on top of the rail just like the ones down there. You’ll need to provide the wooden piece as well. I took a picture of the other ones. If it’s light wood colour, it doesn’t need to be painted. If it’s dark, painted white would be nice. I have the measurements in the picture. It will need the be narrower so 96x30-35 would be enough. Maybe 25-30. Thank you!

He was very kind, nice and helpful. He did a perfect job and left the place clean, neat. Definitely would work with again!

Varnish/treat my external woodwork


Streatham Hill, Greater London, SW2

13th Mar 2023

The size of the garden is 3.6 x 7m. This is a highly UN-skilled job so give me a realistic offer. This job is aimed for a regular labourer on the standard £50-70 day rate. I need 2 coats, each coat takes about 3-3.5 hours to apply so I work it out to a full day of work in total. With the sanding of the fence I will round the work up to about 1.5 days of work I will pay for the varnish separately so we don't use cheap crap, this task is for the labour. I want all the woodwork treated with weatherproof varnish. That includes the door/gate and all support posts. Do you think you recognise the brand/colour? I want the same stuff used. I want all sides of the wood to be varnished/treated not just the angles we see in this photo. I am naturally talking about painting the wood from outside too. I will talk to the neighbour to get you permission to go into his garden. Please look at the top right section in the birds eye view photo. It was covered by vegetation so it was never treated. Would you recommend sanding that section before treating it with varnish? Please look at the small bit of brick wall in the top left of the picture, it is just to the left of the garden gate. There are a couple of small doors behind it in the first photo. I want those to be varnished/treated too. If you go out of the garden gate you will find the bin shed where the two doors are. There is a wooden table in the garden, heavily weathered. Would you like to sand it and then varnish it? Let me know and we can discuss money to do that. We can have that as a separate task or we just alter this job, for the right price. - Due date: Flexible
