Testimonials

“James installed a bespoke desk and cupboards in our new office extension.  One of the main reasons for selecting James to do the job was the impressive set of testimonials on his web site and we’re delighted to add to these.  It has been a pleasure working with James.  He was always prompt in his correspondence, rapidly understood what we were looking for and contributed many good suggestions.  He was realistic in setting our expectations for delivery and delivered on time.  We’re extremely happy with the result and would thoroughly recommend James to others.”

“We needed a bespoke bedframe made to manage our extra-large non-standard mattress. Liaising with James was effortless. I felt he put a lot of time into making sure he knew what we wanted, and now that we have the bedframe in situ, I am delighted to report that it absolutely fits our requirements, and I couldn’t have hoped for a better piece. I felt the price was remarkably reasonable. James was patient enough to wait a few weeks past our agreed date as my builders had delayed the room being ready, which I really appreciated – excellent customer service. I would not hesitate to recommend James to anyone. Thanks very much, James, and good luck with your business.

Mrs.Trewartha, Dundee.”

James created glass doors to make a feature of a wall cupboard. As you can imagine in our Edwardian house nothing was “square” but he managed to create exactly the look I wanted including keeping old paneling and installing interesting door handles.

We also needed some old skirting board renewed and he succeeded in making an exact match for the rest of the room.

Not only are we delighted with his work but we enjoyed working with him. Everything was thoroughly discussed and debated initially and then the work was all completed at the time we had agreed.

We would thoroughly recommend his work, his vision, his work ethic and his quiet competent manner.

“James fitted my beautiful walnut kitchen worktops, incorporating an old Belfast sink. He is a true craftsman; he took great care and paid real attention to detail. He is very easy to get on with and quietly works away. I quizzed him about making a feature of my Aga and he suggested a few designs, one of which I will progress with. I would have no concerns recommending James to anyone as his skill and ability are evident”

“Employed James to fit panelling in various rooms throughout our bed & breakfast and found him to be exceptionally meticulous.  He was very receptive to my ideas and I was extremely pleased with his workmanship – would have no hesitation in using his services again”.

From responding to our enquiry, to advising on design and finish James was reliable and easy to work with. He even coped with our indecision. Most impressive of all is the quality of the workmanship and attention to detail he showed in building our bookshelves. We cannot recommend him highly enough”

 “My home has truly profited from James’ craftsmanship. I quickly learned that James can be trusted completely in understanding my ideas. He also offered very helpful advice, was very reliable and accurate. I always instantly fell in love with every new piece of furniture I got from James. I enjoy being surprised by the way he plays with and combines the patterns in the wood. His obvious attention to detail and to the finish (up to the wonderful smell of the oil) evoke comforting feelings of care, solidity, smoothness and stunning beauty, which are precisely the qualities I want to have my home filled with.”

“Looking for a personal piece of furniture, we asked James to design and build something to fit our particular requirements. He designed, built and delivered the wardrobe to a very high standard with a personal and informed level of service. The final piece of furniture is fantastic and we are both delighted with it, even down to the smallest finishing touches such as the handmade handles that James sourced for us. We would recommend him to anybody looking for a high-quality, personal piece of furniture that stands out from the rest.”

“James has worked on a variety of items for me, ranging from desks and tables to his hand crafted bowls. He has always been full of good ideas, helpful, positive and creative. His work is of an excellent quality finished to the highest standard, produced on time. There seems to be nothing that he can’t do, or any problem that he can’t find a solution to. I have recommended him to many of my friends and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. It is good to see proper craftsmen who don’t cost the earth are still around.”
