Verified review

Michael Boyd completed an upgraded kitchen remodel in July of 2003 at our home in Aurora, MO. The job took approximately 3 weeks to finish. Michael was very exacting and meticulous about his work. He even matched the molding above the cabinets he installed with the existing crown molding in our kitchen. He completed the job on time and his work was excellent. He also completed a large cabinet for our double ovens that included a slotted cabinet above for oven trays. Michael also installed 5 new doors on our cabinets that included two that contained glass fronts. He cut Victorian arched trim below the glass cabinetry that went with our Victorian home. He installed a wood top made of teak on a built-in desk. In addition, he installed bead board above counter tops in kitchen. Michael also installed all wood type laminate on counter top areas in kitchen. He also repaired and installed new wood runners on our built in breadboard. He completed custom trim on all cabinets including tops of cabinets and counter tops. He also installed 8 drawer guides and fronts with easy closing ability to our kitchen drawers. In addition, Michael completed all tear off work involving cabinets himself. My wife especially liked the custom glass doors that he made for our cabinet that displayed our dishes. We truly enjoyed working with Michael on our kitchen remodel. We also hired Michael later to complete a washer/dryer installation with all the necessary plumbing that was needed. We had him move the washer/dryer from our basement to a utility room just off the kitchen. He built a special custom cabinet behind the washer/dryer to hide the plumbing fixtures. In addition, Michael built a broom closet with an upper cabinet above for storage. He also built two additional cabinets above the washer/dryer for storage in this utility room. We truly appreciated all the quality and professional work that Micheal Boyd completed in our kitchen and utility room. We would highly recommend him to anyone who desires excellent cabinetry work in their kitchen or home.

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.
