I was searching for someone with a high skill level and good taste to finish a very nice/high quality raw walnut door. I was very nervous as I wanted to make sure I got the look I wanted. I was SOOO lucky to have found Johnny! He arrived with excitement for the project as he truly loves what he does. His confidence, knowledge and skill level delivered a BEAUTIFUL door! I will now hire him on all woodworking projects for all of my clients!

This guy is a real artist. He took an antique dresser a previous owner had installed as a bathroom vanity without drawers or protection of the wood and added 8 custom drawers and inlaid glass tile on the top including a beautiful backsplash in addition to refinishing the vanity. I can't imagine this vanity could look any better, and I am so happy I opted to repair it rather than replace it. It is now truly one of a kind. Jim is a perfectionist who did not give up when pieces of the vanity fell apart; he simply added new pieces that appear to have been there forever. If you want something wooden of value created or repaired, seriously, talk to Jim White. You will be amazed. I would love to attach the before an after pics but if you email him I am sure he will send you some as well.

I did not use Mr. Henry as, ultimately I was able to find a handyman only 5 miles away. I had no problem with the price quote from Mr. Henry, finding it to be reasonable. As I am a 'Senior' I often have need of repair persons, so, I am familiar with probable charges

Don restored and painted neglected Dutch doors I want to use to replace my front door. There were deep dog scratches in the wood and uneven surfaces. Don did a beautiful job restoring them. No sign of scratches and the paint on them is flawless. You can tell he truely enjoys his art of woodworking and painting. On top of that he gave me a great price too!

    Ray does exceptional work. We are impressed and pleased with his help. Ray did a wonderful job of cleaning up our property of all the overgrown shrubs. He hauled a few loads of clippings and junk last tenants left behind. We like Ray's work so much, that we've hired him on for more projects on our property. Ray is trustworthy, friendly, respectful, on time, thorough, great with woodworking projects, and works hard in extreme conditions (very windy, sunny, and hot). We are hoping he stays on as our new handyman.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      Who is a carpenter and what do they do?

      Carpenters are skilled craftsmen who build things out of wood. Depending on what the carpenter builds, they may be referred to by various names. A framer is a carpenter who puts up the framing on a house. A trim or finish carpenter installs the finishing touches of prefabricated or custom trim and detail work once a house has been built and the walls are up. A furniture maker or woodworker builds furniture — such as tables, beds and dressers — out of wood. A cabinetmaker is a carpenter who builds custom and semi-custom wood cabinets. If you’re having a home built or remodeled, your general contractor will either provide or subcontract the carpentry work for the framing, cabinets and trim. You can hire a carpenter directly to update the trim in your home, build you a piece of custom furniture, or repair or replace your wood cabinets.

      Do carpenters build houses?

      Carpenters are trained to work with wood. That means that any part of your home that is built of wood is very likely to involve a carpenter. Framing carpenters will put up the wood that makes up the bones of your home. If you’re having a wood floor installed, it may be done by a carpenter — although being a carpenter is not a requirement to install flooring. Trim, baseboards, wainscoting and any other detail work is typically installed by a finish carpenter. The wood boxes of custom cabinets will be built and installed by a carpenter.

      Although all of these components in your new or remodeled home are built by carpenters who specialize in building things with wood, a general contractor typically oversees construction of the entire house. If the general contractor is also a carpenter skilled in all these areas, they may well construct your entire home. More often, the general contractor subcontracts out the various building stages to different individuals, including carpenters.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
