Hello - resurrecting this very old thread, wondering if anyone has any current recommendations for a carpenter to make fitted wardrobes. Can any of the people who had suggestions to PM, please PM me. Thanks very much! Sophie

Hi all

I need a good, skilled and honest carpenter to make for me:

1. bespoke corner shelving unit and tv cabinet with bi-fold doors

2. bespoke cupboards and display cabinet with glass doors/shelves and lighting above

3. 2 radiator cabinets

4. airing cupboard shelving unit

Has anyone used anyone recommended on the forum or anyone else for anything similar who they can recommend (e.g. Simon Kidd, Stephen Trickett, Russel Construction). Ideally I think I need a high quality cabinet maker who doesn't mind also doing the radiator cabinets and airing cupboard unit because I want the bespoke units to be made of wood (not MDF) and follow Georgian design (with routing etc).

Any recommedations would be much appreciated as it's really scaring just picking someone based on their website/yellow pages listing alone.

I previously recommended a carpenter by the name of Iain Parker. He was excellent and his craftsmanship was second to none. Iain's number is 07990 594 995. I am no relation BTW and have nothing to do with him other than being a very satisfied customer.

Hi all,
I would be delighted to look at any opportunities. We are a locally based builder and work to a very high standard. Plenty of local references. Regards Brendan from My contacts are <deleted 2012 - no longer trading>

Not sure if you have found someone now but a friend of mine is very good and reliable too - he is based in Sydenham but happy to work in SE1 - his name is Stephen Trickett and his number is 0790 5533789. He was recently recommended in both the Evening Standard Property Section and Time Out's Essential Services guide. He makes bespoke furniture, fitted wardrobes and more or less anything wooden, I think! Well, maybe not boats.

Can totally second Steve as a very satisfied customer as he built a wardrobe into a small storage room for me and gave me well thought out/lots more hanging/storage space. He really is not a chippie but a real crafstman but will do most jobs in wood if he can.Replaced a front door on my last flat too. Lovely bloke and very dependable plus he quoted far less than anyone else for both jobs.Didn't know about the Time Out and Evening Standard entries but well deserved.
