Why book a local carpenter through Airtasker?

Carpentry plays a massive part in our lives. From the chairs we sit on to the homes we live in, so much of what we interact with has gone through the hands of a carpenter at one point.

Carpenters can help with projects of all sizes. If you’re building an extension or adding a carport to your home, an experienced carpenter can create a frame that’s built to last and meets all council regulations.

On the other hand, if you’re looking at the finer details of your home, a carpenter can be of great assistance too. From small detailing like replacing skirting boards to refurbishing your dining table and chairs, hiring a skilled labourer can make all the difference.

With Airtasker, you can quickly and easily find the best carpenter for your job. Simply tell us what you’re looking for, where you’re based and what your budget is, and we’ll connect you with the people with the most relevant carpentry skills in your area. You can then browse profiles, read reviews and get in touch with your favourite craftsman to get your project underway!

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 plaster work. 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

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 focused 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 a 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.

Hello Martin, We've given it some thought...... Here's the solution / fix to your storage box lid ........ The Glue has broken down and the top of the lid framing is separating........ #1 Re Glue the fingers of the slats that's separating...use a good Premium Wood Glue........Gorilla Glue or Tite Bond Premium Wood Glue #2 Use a Long Clamp (36" or so) that can go across the top of the lid.......and clamp the lid together for 24 hours #3 You can also add metal Mending Braces (2" long) on the underside of the lid.........where the horizontal frame meets the vertical frame on the end......use 4 of them ...one for each of the corners... see pics......we've added the metal braces to a storage box we have here in the store for illustration purposes for you - Due date: Flexible
