Design and installation of fitted wardrobe Carpentry & Joinery
John and his colleague Paul did a fantastic job. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.
They managed to create us a custom built wardrobe exactly how we’d enviseaged it (despite the unexpected wonkiness of our floors and ceiling!), and provided a top quality service at an extremely competitive price.
They were also both polite, respectful and clearly took great pride in their work.
It was a joy to work with them and we’ll certainly turn to them again for all future jobs.

Build and install large fitted wardrobes Carpentry & Joinery
Measured and fitted great wardrobes as described, with reasonable flexibility the whole way through the process. Excellent communication and balanced opinion on client thoughts and concerns. Final stage was of concern; quote should come with taking rubbish away but did not, also, workmen left various scratches and damage to surrounding paint work inc ceiling for loft installation. Painting not possible and had to be contracted to someone else. Make no mistake, we are pleased with the final products.

Built in wardrobe Carpentry & Joinery
John spent 2 days with Paul to complete the built in wardrobes to span one side of the room. He came early each day on a weekend and worked fast and made a lot of effort protecting my wooden floors. I am very pleased with my new wardrobes and he was very helpful with suggestions with regards to the final design. I wished I had found him earlier so he could have built the fitted wardrobe in the main bedroom. Overall he was on time, hard working and very productive and I am very pleased with the finished wardrobes. I would gladly recommend him and would most definitely contact for any further carpentry jobs.

multiple carpentry work Carpentry & Joinery
The Quote we received from John was not the cheapest but was very competitive and after chatting through with him what it was we would like done we felt he would do the best work.... we were right.
He did a fantastic job, our new stairs look great and door frames and new doors are lovely. He also rescued a door frame that had been done by somebody else as it was so badly done a door would not have fitted (no extra cost)
John and his workmate (Hi Paul) were punctual every day, very polite and left things tidied away at the end of each day.
I have never had anything done on this scale before and was quite nervous about what would look right, John helped me with choices of door furniture etc and was not phased by me changing my mind on things at the last min.
The Quality of his work was perfect and i would have no hesitation in asking him back if i needed anything else doing in the future and would recommend him to anybody looking to have carpentry work done.

Bespoke alcove cupboards in a 1920s terrace Carpentry & Joinery
John was helpful, polite and accommodating to our needs. When we decided to change the design from two cupboards either side of the chimney to a desk and drawers with cupboards above on one side, he had no trouble adapting the design. Final result was of excellent quality, and filled the space precisely. Very happy indeed. Recommended (and will probably hire again for further rooms in the house).

Absolutely delighted with John's work! He installed alcove shelving for us, and they look brilliant. John paid attention to lots of little details, and as such the shelving is both professionally finished and looks very handsome in our living room. Not only that, we had quite a difficult space, but John was able to work with it. Most importantly, he completed the work to time and on budget, was also very friendly, and asked questions and made suggestions for what would work. Have already enquired about hiring John again. Definitely recommended!

Book shelves Carpentry & Joinery
I can't heap enough praise on John for the job he did for us.
John constructed a 19ft wide bookcase with cabinets, from floor to ceiling.
In his unassuming manner, he came by promptly to give a reasonable quote and booked us in for the job a few days later.
With his no-nonsense, get-on-with-it professionalism, John and his assistant Mathew crafted a beautiful piece in no time at all. Within 2 days the book case was complete, with adorning detail all over.
I am delighted with the quality of his work, efficiency, manner and price and am looking around the house for more work to give him!
I can recommend him with no hesitation.

John was very polite and punctual. His quote was reasonable. He constructed some built in cupboards which we are very pleased with. I wanted someone to paint the cupboards and room after John had finished and he recommended his uncle. The paint work wasn't of the best standard as his uncle was painting in the evening and it was quite rushed. Other than that everything was great. Would definitely recommend John to do any carpentry work.

Custom built loft wardrobe and and 2 loft storage areas Carpentry & Joinery
I would highly recommend John and his team. He is a very diligent, courteous and punctual carpenter and even though he is young, he has learnt much of his craft from his father and this experience shows in his work. He was very well priced compared to the market and he was able to take onboard any late changes to the alcove wardrobe without any fuss. Also, another small but good thing is that he and his team would clean up after themselves after each night.
I would definitely hire him for wood work carpentry jobs going forward.

Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder Carpentry & Joinery
I got Johns name from a friend who he had done some work for before. I found him approachable, friendly and professional. He clearly explained the options available, designs he could do (wardrobes) and the pricing. He was clean and methodical and completed the job as planned on time, within budget. He laid the wood laminated flooring in my kitchen/diner and living room. He hung 5 oak doors with fittings and built me a double wardrobe from scratch. His expertise and attention to detail is second to none, and i would highly recommend him to anyone who needs any building or carpentry work, he is definitely someone you can rely on.

Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder Carpentry & Joinery
John has done quite a few bits for me, he built a wardrobe from scratch in my bedroom, laid some wood flooring downstairs and done different bits and pieces around the house. He is very clean and tidy and quite a perfectionist; he likes to finish everything to a high specification. For my wardrobe I knew vaguely what I wanted but John gave me lots of advice on what is actually possible and what would look good. I passed him name on to some work colleagues and they have all been happy with the jobs he did for them too. He is really good, excellent.
