Meet the Team

Our emphasis is always on quality, and this begins with recruiting the right people. It is worth noting that just as most of our customers are referred to us by existing customers, so most of our recuitment is as a result of referrals by existing team members who have previously worked with a prospective recruit and can vouch for the quality of their work, and the pride they take in producing quality products. As a result we now have a waiting list of prospective team members. The majority of team at our workshop are fully qualified, time served Bench Joiners or Cabinet Makers who have more than 20 years experience of furniture and kitchen making.   

Your kitchen will be made from scratch especially for you by a small team of 3 people, chosen to work together for their complementary skills. The team will include a dovetail drawer expert and a door making and fitting expert.
