About Rainey Wood Works
Rainey wood works, owned and operated by qualified carpenter Lorraine Hull is a unique business fresh to the scene of Perth. It offers an experience like no other, workshops run by a female for females (but not limited just to the ladies). Attention to detail in all items designed and created and an all-round ‘you become the carpenter experience.’
Owner of Rainey Wood Works, Lorraine has been involved in the building & construction industry for 10 years. She developed a passion for working with wood in high school but it wasn't till her early 20’s that she finally began an apprenticeship as a Carpenter & Joiner. Lorraine has also completed a diploma in Building as well as numerous license courses to ensure she is up to date with relevant working standards for Australia.
Lorraine runs workshops for women and she hopes that in being a female, others will feel comfortable enough to come along and learn a new skill or just enjoy allowing their creative streak to shine, while making something practical to take home with them.

Opening its doors in 2014 Rainey Wood Works creates an atmosphere where you the client become the carpenter. Through workshops targeted at various groups, including but not limited to single women, or women who would like to be independent in their homes. Rainey Wood Works allows the client to learn skills necessary for attending to their own home maintenance needs without requiring the use of an outside tradesman. Having spent years in a male dominated industry Lorraine discovered the need for women to feel empowered and enabled to achieve things around the home which were traditionally deemed the 'mans job'. Wanting to share her knowledge with others, both women & men she felt it was time to create Rainey Wood Works and offer workshops to show people just how capable they are, without the need for hiring a tradesman or 'hire a hubby' service.
Lorraine has a broad range of skills & knowledge collected over the years of working as a Carpenter for various companies around Perth. She also offers a commission system of works, where she can design and tailor make items to your needs & requirements. Allowing you the customer to design your own bespoke item for a commissioned work also puts you in the ‘Carpenters boots’, ensuring you are purchasing an item made to your needs.
Not forgetting her Carpentry roots, Lorraine offers a range of Carpentry services for your home, whether it be hanging a new door, installing skirting throughout your home or organising and installing a wardrobe/shelving system Lorraine is ready to take on the job.
