This past May, I contacted Thumbtack in search of a carpenter to downsize a farmhouse table that I bought from Habitat For Humanity for a wonderful $75.00, which was constructed of solid fir wood. Tim Martinez responded to my request, then I explained to him what I needed done to the table. I wanted the table modified in size with a rustic finish. Tim was so excited to do the job and explained to me what the job entailed. He was very knowledgeable in his craft and was excited to do the work, so I hired him. He gave reasonable quote for doing the work and for pick-up and delivery. Upon arrival to my home, he was very cheerful and excited, with portfolio in hand. I saw pictures of his woodwork projects, which were of doors, farmhouse tables, bars, etc. He informed me that it would take appx. 30days to complete the work, which I was fine with. When the table arrived, I was so pleased and it was exactly what I wanted. The table was beautiful! It was downsized to my specifications and the lime wax finish was nice! Then he gave me thorough instructions on how to care for the table. As a person that does many DIY furniture projects, I often call Tim for suggestions to complete the jobs. He's really cool and I will most definitely hire him for future projects.

I called James at 8:15 am and he was at my house in 25 minutes! Now that's service! My husband and I needed a carpenter to install two cabinets and a counter top in our laundry room. These items had already been delivered and were sitting in our garage. What seemed like a pretty simple job turned out to be a bit more complicated. It turned out James had to make some modifications which required him to design and build an additional component on the job site. Miraculously, he accomplished this feat, and the finished product is perfection! Our laundry room looks beautiful! We are very fortunate we had James do the work. He is an excellent carpenter, very professional, very articulate, and he takes care of the surrounding areas in the home. We will be calling on him again when we need his services. He is a gem.

Jay is a pleasure to work with and far exceeded my expectations. While an experienced carpenter he can easily jump into doing a laundry list of handyman work and is very efficient with his time. Thumbs up!

In the end of April, we found ourselves with a large project of building a 40 foot booth in just under 3 weeks. After meeting with 3 carpenters, I met with Brent and was immediately impressed with his knowledge and passion for carpentry. He was upfront, stayed in good communication throughout the project and built a booth that was shipped to New York and back with no damages. There must have been hundreds of details that he worked out during the design and construction and each was well executed. We shipped on time, the set ups and take downs were fast and best of all the booth looked great! We will be able to use this for the next several years, and really appreciate the time, experience and knowledge that Brent has. He is a very professional carpenter, completely passionate about delivering what you need and want and will put in that extra mile if you need it. I would recommend him to anyone, and in fact already have! Thank you Brent for such a good product and I will call you first next time.

I had been using a good carpenter for projects around our new houses for the last 3 years and when he wasn't available recently we found Micah and I am so impressed with his work. The first project he did was this patio cover in the photos. Amazing craftsmanship, every joint and line is clean and straight, and it's sturdy and stable. The finished project, I think you'll agree, added soooo much appeal to our yard. The next project was a custom built-in bench, cabinet piece in our foyer. I hope you can see from the pictures that it's immaculate. The lines are clean, the spacing is tight, all the little details that differentiate good carpentry are present. The doors and chest top work smoothly and seamlessly. It's been two days and it's already proven to be super useful and integrate perfectly with our home decor. Highly recommend!

We hired Pedro to fix our bi-fold closet doors in two bedrooms which were broken off their rails, a couple of interior doors that no longer closed properly, and a couple of side gates that had closing mechanisms that did not work. We were amazed at Pedro's work. Not only did he know his carpentry stuff, but he was thorough, neat, and exceeded all our expectations. We have now found our carpenter for life, and will be using Pedro for other upcoming carpentry projects.

Ryan is my Son. He has worked with me off and on since he was thirteen. I have been a Carpenter for 48 years and I taught Ryan the trade. You can read about me on Thumbtack . My company name is Frank Williams Home Repairs. He is an excellent Carpenter and Handyman. He has worked on a wide array of projects over the years. He is a quick thinker and a very creative person. He is a problem solver and because of that I relied upon him on many different occasions with many difficult projects we did together over the years. I would highly recommend Ryan for whatever project you might be contemplating.

    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 you tip cabinet installers?

    In general, home service providers such as electricians, plumbers and contractors are professionals who don’t expect tips. They expect to do a job for you for the specific price they quoted. Of course, they may appreciate a tip for a job particularly well done or for which they’ve gone beyond what’s normally expected, such as completing the project early or under budget. Even better than a tip, it’s always appropriate to leave a positive review online after a good experience.

    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.

    How much is custom cabinetry?

    Custom cabinets can be built for any room, including bedroom closets and built-in armoires. Measured carefully and built precisely, custom cabinetry can increase storage and beautify any room. The national average for building custom cabinets ranges from $500 to $1,200 per linear foot. The cost is highly variable because there are so many styles, colors, glazes and other options. In general, the linear footage of the cabinets, the materials used to build them, and the cost of the labor will determine the cost. Solid wood costs more than plywood and wood veneer, and costs vary among different types of wood; maple and cherry cabinets are more expensive than pine. Glass-front cabinets can cost more, as can decorative hinges, handles and door pulls, which can cost $2-$45 each; choose carefully to stay within your budget and pull off the exact look you’re going for. Some carpenters also charge for installation, on average $100 per cabinet box. Additional molding and trim, such as crown molding at the ceiling, cost an average of $70 per 8-foot section, and adding finished ends to exposed cabinets averages $100-$200.

    How much does it cost to have kitchen cabinets installed?

    In any kitchen, the cabinets are the main focus, so you want to make sure new or replacement cabinets are installed correctly. A professional carpenter can properly, securely mount new cabinets to the wall; the national average cost for this service is $7,725, although the cost varies widely depending on the type of cabinets, their material and their size, and the accessories you add. A typical fee is $70 per linear foot to remove existing cabinets and assemble and install new ones; the cost is less if you do the demolition and removal yourself. Stock cabinets are the least expensive to have installed, ranging from $75 to $400 each; semi-custom cabinets range from $150 to $900 each; and custom cabinets cost from $500 to $1,400 each. Wood cabinets are more expensive than those made from plywood or medium-density fiberboard (MDF) and finished with a laminate. Wood cabinets range in cost from $80 to $160 per linear foot. Laminate-finished cabinets cost $35 to $75 per linear foot, on average.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
