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. 

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. 


Many Australian homes are blessed with a large backyard and plenty of sunny hours to enjoy that space. 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

Cabinet makers 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 focussed on fine details. Cabinet makers 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.

Help from a carpenter with skirting boards and adapting a cupboard


Bessels Green, Kent

29th Jan 2023

I’m looking for a competent carpenter to help with two jobs. The first is with a cupboard that was built around our boiler (see photos). It serves a purpose so far as it looks good, but It’s been built in such a way that it when a heating engineer arrived to service our boiler last week, the woodwork obstructs the boiler’s casing so much that the cover of a the boiler can’t be slid forwards as it’s designed to. We need to find a solution so the boiler can be accessed, I'm thinking perhaps using some kind of clips? The other job is some skirting boards and architrave around doors. There’s skirting boards to go onto three walls, totalling around 7 meters with a few joins (see photos). Plus architrave on two door frames. As you can see from the photos; I have given this a go already but have realised it’s beyond my skill level and so I’d rather start from scratch and hire a professional! I’ll supply all materials and do have various tools here, let’s chat before the job to ensure we have everything we need. - Due date: Flexible

Install skirting boards


Upper Shirley, Greater London

10th Dec 2022

I'm looking for someone to install baseboards in my flat. I already have 10 boards à 4200mm so the work should be limited to cutting and installing the boards. I also have a glue gun with two cartridges if this helps reduce material cost. One corner is blocked by heating pipes; I am hoping that those could be covered up by skirting (or other) board but happy to listen to alternative ideas. The outer walls are slightly sloped, which needs be considered when fitting the skirting in those corners. The photos show the old skirting boards in one of the rooms but I will remove those myself ahead of time. The skirting needs to be installed alongside the walls and black lines as shown on the floor plan, excluding the kitchen and bathroom.
