Recent Carpentry reviews in Whitechapel

Absolutely amazing! I’d recommend every time for any plumbing to carpentry job. Really lovely personality and a hard working professional.

Installing doors and handles


Fantastic service. This was a tricky installation job which required a range of skills and tools, and George completed the task brilliantly. He's smart and enthusiastic and I would certainly recommend him.

Install outdoor cat run panels


Great service! Great at the job! And very fast!! Thank you very much! I hope to use your services again.

Build my shed


Unfortunately our job didn't go entirely to plan so I can't give 5 stars. Derek did however go above and beyond to try to make things right, and throughout the job he was completely clear in terms of communications, costs and turning up on time (he did overrun, but when a job doesn't go to plan that's pretty much inevitable).

Build desk in bay window


Quick tidy job. Thank you for shaving the doors.

Carpenter to shave doors


Great job and very friendly! Thanks for building the cupboard

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.
