Richard and Jeremiah were friendly, hardworking, and very considerate of my preferences. The construction took a little longer than anticipated and Richard came back again the next day to finish the job correctly. Very professional and friendly and would trust with another project again.

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.

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 and making wall partitions, to refurbishing your dining table and chairs, hiring a skilled carpenter nearby your home can make all the difference.

With Airtasker, you can quickly and easily find the best carpenter in your area.

Carpenters work with wood in all manner of ways. From timber framing for houses or carports to the finishing touches on furniture, carpenters are hired for jobs large and small.

Not all carpenters offer the same services. An experienced cabinet maker may not be the best choice if you want timber framing done, while a decking expert may not have the credentials to refurbish your furniture. It's recommended to choose someone with experience in the specific job of your request.

Yes. While some carpenters have specific areas of expertise, you can employ someone to do a number of small woodworking jobs in one visit. This can be the same job in a number of rooms or different jobs throughout the house. Remember though that some carpentry jobs require more than one day to complete.

Depending on their specialty and level of training, you may find that a carpenter comes under a different name, such as a master carpenter. From specific tasks such as cabinet maker to more general terms like artisan, joiner or woodworker, there are plenty of variations for carpentry workers.

In the US, carpenters can attain certification for different specializations by joining carpentry classes or training in community colleges. Some also obtain work experience through an apprenticeship program under the guidance of experienced master carpenters or experts in construction trades. 

For certain types of carpentry tasks, you may need to inquire as to what specialist licenses may be required to undertake your task as this can vary. Please make sure that you confirm that a Tasker has the relevant license and insurance before accepting an offer.

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 have the knowledge and expertise in using power tools and building materials for construction projects.

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. 


Want to transform your backyard into a functional space? Carpenters can work as a decking specialist to help. 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 specialize 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.

I have the case and the CPU cooler In the video it was built with a RTX 2080 white edition because that was all that was available at the time but I want to run a RTX 4080 white edition Is that graphics card compatible with the ROG STRIX 850w power supply and CPU (RYZEN 7 5800X)? And also I want to have the LIAN LI strimer cables in white but I don’t know what would be compatible with this build In the video the guy had the power supply connected from the outside due to space but in the comments someone mentioned they rearranged the internal configs of the case and the shelving inside the case to make it fit but it was a different power supply. Would I be possible with the STRIX 850W?
