He can do the work of carpentry well enough .

He can cook Italian dishes well enough .

Is the use of enough at the end of the sentences correct?

    Yes you can tag enough on the end of these. It suggests he has a competence but not an excellence in these skills.

    However "to do the work of carpentry" is not a very idiomatic expression.
    The Italian dishes one sounds authentic (enough).

    Is it grammatically also wrong? He can do plumbing well enough or He can do the work of plumbing well enough?
