"Based on just a couple of sketches and some pictures ripped out of magazines, Abingdon Carpentry built the most fantastic, original and elegant bookcases and storage walls."
Simon took the time to listen to what we wanted and discuss ideas. He made helpful suggestions, had ideas about materials and his experience shone through when discussing the actual construction of the units. He takes great pride in his work and his accuracy is spot on. Having seen the quality of his work, we then asked him to build fitted wardrobes, shelves and a wonderful window seat with cupboards underneath.
By now, Simon had become a member of the renovation team, so we asked him to do all the structural wood work and timbers for the roof of a triple garage (with a dormer). Simon completed all the timber work on the .garage, to an incredibly high standard. Simon is totally trustworthy, creative and reliable. If he has questions, he asks. If he has
ideas, he suggests.
To top it all, Simon is a wonderfully, cheerful, pleasant and tidy guy to have around. I would unreservedly recommend him as a carpenter for both structural and fine work, for jobs large or small.

“A high degree of skill.”
We recently completed a sizeable extension with Abingdon Carpentry undertaking extensive work on the interior woodwork and exterior guttering. The interior woodwork is exposed oak skirting, architraves and doors requiring a high degree of skill to ensure joints are butted closely together with no gaps or misalignments. Abingdon Carpentry managed to do this consistently to a very high standard. Simon has proven to be a reliable, hardworking and good natured craftsman who keeps his promises and helps out in any way he can to get the job done. I would (and-have) recommended Abingdon Carpentry for other work and I've heard great things from other customers.

The quality of Abingdon Carpentry's finished work is without exception exemplary. They helped design a large built-in wardrobe I was considering, applying experience, knowledge and plenty of patience to complete the task on-time, on budget, and to the normal high standards. Simon also displays ingenuity, taking ownership of those extra bits of pieces needed to complete a job. For example, Simon personally rectified the arrangement of a complex sliding door mechanism that had been incorrectly fitted by a previous tradesman, showing versatility and skills beyond his specialisation.
In my experience, Simon has always been reliable, organised and easy to deal with. He estimates his tasks with accuracy and integrity, and I have had no experience of any hidden costs. I would recommend the services of Abingdon Carpentry unequivocally and without hesitation.
