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.?


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.?

Install wall garden kit on balcony


Brunswick VIC, Australia

24th Oct 2020

I will buy a wall garden kit that needs to be attached to a wall on my balcony. It's a 2m square space above the aircon unit. The kit attaches to common building materials such as wire mesh, or wood trellis (though I prefer wire mesh). See the photos and the youtube video. The wall is a concrete sheet (or something like that) but there should be some studs behind it. The balcony has a tape, and I also need a pipe to be run from the tape to a drip system above the garden. From their website: Even easier to install Multi-hang clips onto most vertical garden backing systems or commonly available materials such as steel mesh or wood lattice. Alternatively, you can build your own rail using wood & standard extrusion or screw Multi-hang directly to a wall or fence. Here's the youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAQxFVwGSfI&feature=emb_logo The product is from https://wallgarden.com.au/ The "New Multi-Hang". I will pay for all materials. It's outside so COVID safe.

Tenzin was incredible. He was so knowledge about the task (installing a wall garden with drip system). He was very efficient and reasonably priced. On top of that, he is easy to be around and have in your place. Pretty sure the they would be very few tasks he couldn't complete. Highly recommended!
