What is Finish Carpentry

Finish carpentry is the last step in the carpentry process. It involves the installation of finish woods and trims made of plastic or molded polyurethane. Our Eugene Finish carpenters perform tasks such as installing crown molding, baseboards, windows, stairs and other features of a building that requires an aesthetic appeal.

Kempf Construction proficient finish carpenters have years of practice and know a wide range of woodworking tools.

Cutting, fitting and installation of fascias and molding comprise a significant portion of finish carpentry work. The installation of the frame is a straightforward task that doesn’t require a lot of tools. Hand tools are mostly used to cut and fit molding; however, some carpenters use power tools to save time and effort.

Another significant portion of finish carpentry work includes putting up the trim surrounding doors and windows, as well as installing each unit, so it is level and operates correctly. Once the door or window has been established, the trim is cut and nailed into place. A lot of window or door trim should be installed with a similar method of creating a picture frame by connecting each corner at a 45-degree angle.


The field of finish carpentry involves so many skilled tasks, such as cabinetmaking and stair-building, that some regions of home-building may be handled by just one person or even a small crew. Building stairs and cabinets are two of the more complex tasks, where at least the original work needs to be done in a woodworking shop. Once the cabinets are made, or the stairs are built, the finish carpenter will have the task of installing these items on-site.

Finish carpenters use a wide variety of tools. Some commonly-used power tools are the electric drill circular saw, electric screw gun, table saw, router and power miter box. This last tool is one of the most important for a finish carpenter to make the angled cuts the job requires. Our Eugene Finish carpenters also use measuring tools such as tape measures, rulers, and scribes, which are used to measure curves.
