Below is feedback received from clients on mybuilder.com.

Wooden Bathroom shelf Joinery & Cabinet Making Ian was brilliant. Responded quickly and was happy to come and see exactly what I needed. Then produced the shelf really quickly and the install was quick, clean and tidy. I’m thrilled with the end result. I’ve already asked Ian to quote on other jobs and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him. sophy_79 – 14th Feb, 2020 Positive feedback

Simple units Joinery & Cabinet Making Working with Ian was so ridiculously stress free. I told him what I wanted and he produced it, perfectly. deborah58919 – 10th Jan, 2020 Positive feedback

Loft Bedroom Storage Solutions-fitted wardrobe &drawers  Joinery & Cabinet Making When my previous carpenter disappointed us by not delivering on his word, Ian stepped in and in extremely short notice (two or so weeks from first contact) designed built and fit a bespoke birch plywood wardrobe for a slanted ceiling loft bedroom. He took the time in our initial meeting to figure out exactly what we wanted, then took our sketch and provided a computer design. The finish is top quality, the drawers all work perfectly, very happy with the results. He was very professional and also really likeable, so one didn’t feel put out by him being there. Happy to recommend. linmae – 2nd Aug, 2019 Positive feedback

Book-nook bookcase and replacement wardrobe doors Joinery & Cabinet Making Ian was an absolute dream to work with!

Supply and fit wardrobe doors Carpentry Very pleased with the wardrobe doors that Ian made and fitted for us. He came to provide a quote very promptly and we wouldn’t hesitate to contact him again for future work. kj32 – 28th Jul, 2016 Positive feedback

Bookshelves Carpentry Ian made two huge bookshelves for me from reclaimed scaffolding boards and I’m extremely happy with the result. Ian is not only “a carpenter”, he’s a furniture maker with a real vision and an artistic vein. The design process was very constructive and indeed exciting: I had my own initial concept that he made a plan of on the computer, and then we discussed it in detail on site. He didn’t mind travelling (twice!) from Bristol to Bath for consultations and measurements. He is most reliable, he was always on time, returned every call, replied to all messages and he also listened carefully (e.g. I asked him to sand the boards deep and he dyed the wood the exact colour I wanted). And to top it all off, all these services came at a very competitive price. Last but not least, Ian is a very friendly and nice chap, a real pleasure to work with. (Ian also fixed some skirting boards for me “on the fly”, which I was equally happy with). aron_93 – 16th Jun, 2016 Positive feedback

Pippy English oak, live edge floating shelves. Unique, robust and incredible looking. The oak has had all cracks and knots filled with epoxy resin and they've been finished with @fiddes_woodfinishes hard wax oil. Swipe along to see what the oak from @vasterntimber initially looked like. #floatingshelves #floatingshelf #liveedge #waneyedge #rawedge #naturaledge #oakshelves #shelving #kitchen #kitcheninspo #kitchendesign #pippyoak

Resin filled English oak worktops. These were installed just in time for Christmas. In the New year I'll be going back to install upstands and a new windowsill behind the sink. The units were made over 3 years ago by a local maker.  The clients have had a long wait to get it finished with worktops after having temporary chipboard tops for all that time! #worktops #kitchendesign #oakworktops #oakfurniture  #resinwork #woodworkuk

To go with the huge home office shelving and storage unit I recently did, I was also commissioned to make these 2 desks and complementary drawer units. The beautiful English oak is loaded with characterful grain and knots adding warmth to the simple contemporary design. All oak is finished with Fiddes hard wax oil for a robust long lasting finish. #homeoffice #officedesk #officedesign #oakfurniture #bristolfurniture #drawers #contemporarydesign

It's nice when things go to plan! Second lot of floating shelves fitted in as many days. Fortunately these went up without any hiccups, (although I did get yesterday's shelves up in the end and they're looking great, will photo them when the rest of that kitchen is finished). These shelves are in a kitchen refurb and in their previous life were the clients old oak worktops. Great to reuse the timber and give them a new lease of life!  #floatingshelves #reclaimedwood #reuse

Just installed this huge bespoke home office storage unit. I've also made 2 desks and under desk storage units for this purpose built extension, which I'll photograph and post next week. The unit is MDF, hand painted with Dulux trade satinwood timeless, with a solid English oak top finished with fiddes hard wax oil. Recessed hand pulls on the doors and drawers keep the unit light, simple and contemporary. And the ascending upper shelving units follow the pitch of the roof, making good use of the space without overwhelming the room. The clients won't be short of storage space! #bristolfurniture #fittedfurniture #homedecor #homeoffice #storageideas #shelving #woodworkuk #contemporary #interiordesign
