Essentialy, it’s just me, a bloke called Steve. My ethos is all about being as conscious of the environment I live in as possible, which is why instead of using a battered old transit van for means of transport, I choose either a Pashley Classic 33, Pashley Pronto with trailer or a Surly Big Dummy (If you are not a bike geek, you can ignore this and just ogle at the pictures)
I studied furniture making at Rycotewood College, Oxford, and have 22 years experience of trade related experience. Originally this took me into furniture making but life careered me into becoming a technician / teaching assistant in carpentry and joinery at Cambridge Technical College. My life since then has taken a different path, one of the freelance joiner/carpenter. From an unusual, custom-built cabinet to a stage-build at a festival or theatre prop, if it’s buildable or restorable, I’m all ears!
First I wil get back to you, be it via email or telephone. Then we will arrange to meet and discuss your needs. All first quotes and negotiations are free from charge.
The next point of call will be arranging a time and schedule and also to discuss where the work will take place. In most instances this will be in situ, but work is arrangable off-site if neccesary
I am polite and dignified to to a tee. I’ll do my best to contain our mess by cleaning the work area at the end of each day
Every project gets my upmost attention regardless of size or cost. You invest in my time to get it right. If I don’t get it right, I won’t sell it to you
I am accountable. Start times, deadlines and schedules are commitments you can count on. My phone is always on so you can reach me whenever you need
I do not cut corners. What you ask of me, I will build it to last a lifetime. This is your baby, not mine. Whatever it takes, it shall be.
