Carpenters and joiners complete a four year  apprenticeship. I left college with City & Guilds qualifications in Advanced Carpentry, Site Management and a professional qualification with The Chartered Institute of Builders.

I am lucky that I have a passion for the job I do. I am not saying every day is a sunny one but there really is nothing to compare to the pride and contentment of the smile on a client's face of a good job or project completed.

I would recommend him to anyone looking for carpentry services. Thank you for you excellent work, Paul!" Mr. B, Abingdon. January 2021

"Paul worked quickly, efficiently, and with great skill at my property. I had rough ideas of what I wanted done, and he came up with better solutions in all cases, costing them very fairly and completing them very quickly. The finish was excellent, and he left the site clear each evening. Paul designed and built a heavy duty set of deep shelves for art materials in a spare room; decorative cladding to cover a boiler; installation of bespoke shelving in a pantry; and designing and building a set of shelving and cupboard to accommodate a record collection, while fitting in with the 1930s decor around it.

He also hung 5 oak doors in the house, and advised on sourcing the locks/mortices/etc. All required significant adjustment by him to accommodate the quirks of the house.

I would warmly recommend his services without reservation and would certainly approach him again in future." Mr. O, Oxford 2021

"Paul built a brilliant set of floor to ceiling bookshelves for us, with 'secret' door through to downstairs toilet. Despite disruption caused by lockdown, it came together perfectly and we're delighted with the results." Mr. M, February 2021

"Paul removed our awful old solid staircase and bannister with gorgeous spindles and oak bannister. Totally transformed the room! Also fitted a bookcase under the stairs and lovely latched cottage type pine doors on 3 cupboards. The staircase was a tricky job - Paul dealt with all the weird angles and bumps without moaning or doing that sharp intake of breath that some tradesmen do when they encounter something unexpected and use as an excuse to charge you more.
Charge was as quoted, despite rising costs of materials post Covid and Brexit.
All finished to a very high quality…so happy with the results.
No hesitation in recommending him."
Mrs Gable, Abingdon, March 2022

"Paul is an excellent and experienced carpenter. I had a fairly tricky job for him, turning our homemade super king bed into two single beds! But he worked on it confidently and found a way of making it work. We are very happy with our new beds and the wheels on them are great. Paul was also quick to reply to emails and to do the job. He's great at what he does!". Mrs C, Headington, April 2022

A real craftsman and a swift worker. Punctual, reliable, and helpful in suggesting good sensible ways to repair a whole list of things. Does not overcharge. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. Mrs. C, Oxford, April 2022
