Hello, I'm Stephen Allen, Carpenter/Joiner/Cabinetmaker,
here to help bring your requirements into reality.
Based on our discussions and your input, I will design, cost, produce and instal, for you, a unique beautifully well made piece of quality furniture into your chosen location.
Then all you need to do, is simply use and enjoy, in the full knowledge and satisfaction of a job well done and money well spent
Don't settle for 'run of the mill', you work hard enough for the things you want, and deserve better.
Have it designed, manufactured, installed and finished, all by me.
Woodwork is what I do, it's what I've done since the early 70s,
I have been in business here in the Surrey/Hampshire area, supplying excellent quality woodwork and cabinetry for a discerning clientele since 1984.
You are already fully aware of your own individuality, the clothes you wear, the cars you drive, your choices and style set you apart.
What I offer, is not available 'off the shelf', if you so desire, it could be the only one on the planet.
It doesn't come more bespoke.
Working with the raw materials, to your designs or my own, I am not restricted by the limits of the mass produced ready made, and am able to provide, custom made products to your unique requirements.
Solid timber or timber based sheet materials, I use only the finest quality of, ethically sourced, hard and softwoods, furniture grade veneered sheet materials and premium grade particle boards, along with the very best, state of the art hardware fittings and mechanisms, I am able to make the following:
Furniture, both built-in and free-standing, Cabinets, Alcove cabinets, Bathroom cabinets, Bookcases, Copy existing furniture for add-ons, Wardrobes, Under-stair pull-out storage solutions, Beds, Bed headboards, Bedside cabinets, Bedroom suites, Coffee tables, Dinning tables, Board room tables,TV cabinets, Home offices, Play rooms, Libraries, Framed mirrors, Secret doors......
Do I need my own detailed drawings ?
No, although that would be great, a pencil sketch or scribble is an excellent start, but if you are unsure as to what you actually want, we can just talk, to establish your requirements, and what it is you want to achieve from the finished piece.
Pintrest is now a very popular source of inspiration for many.
I have some holiday photos, can you make this ?
Yes, I can scale up from pictures; if you've seen something whilst away, and you have the pictures, then why not have it made.
I have a very awkward corner, no one seems able come up with something, can you ?
Just browse my photos, you will see I do not shy from the challenge, it's one of the benefits of working to a drawing, it shows not only the problem but the solution as well.
