Finish Carpentry

Actually, I need my front wooden door stripped & restained . . Is this considered "finish" carpentry (since the door is being refinished?) or is it something else. I think I found an answer. Picture a home being built from the ground up. Most the rough wood framing would be considered "regular" carpentry. When the crew moves indoors, and start putting the window moulding and floor molding, that's "finish" carpentry. Any time you're using a hammer and have to worry about making a mark, that's finish carpentry.

    Refinishing a door is not considered any kind of carpentry actually. It would be named refinishing. Maybe call a painter or look for a wood-refinishing service. Carpentry is building things with wood, finishing carpentry is doing details like baseboards, mantels, railings. I have a friend that does finishing carpentry and he is the one the builders call once the house is built and needs all the inside details done. Hope this helps.
