Carpenters and Joiners

Investing in bespoke furniture, perfectly designed to fit your space or complement your style might seem a real luxury, but it’s an investment you are unlikely to regret. Carpenters and joiners are true craftsmen, highly skilled at working with wood. The range of jobs a carpenter or joiner might do for you is almost limitless, whether producing made-to-measure pieces of home furniture and bespoke joinery or woodwork, or working on larger construction projects. You might want to employ your carpenter for everything from constructing a roof frame to architectural trims, from building a wall-to-wall bookcase to crafting a bespoke kitchen table, and from designing a one of a kind balustrade to building open shelving in the kitchen. They can also add a special artisan’s touch to normally incidental items such as door frames, picture frames and panelling, or fashion storage solutions in normally unused spaces such as under the stairs or in alcoves and niches. Essentially, joiners and carpenters can cope with all sorts of woodwork and bespoke joinery, install it in unusual spaces and dimensions, and also instil your home with real handmade quality. More

Featured Reviews for Carpenters and Joiners
Bath Bespoke
Carpenters and Joiners
"Really friendly team of talented craftsmen working with wood in the Bath area, a young dynamic team with a bright future. Bespoke kitchens, furniture and joinery - we have worked with Bath Bespoke and recommend them."
- Ironart Ltd
Clermont Ltd
Carpenters and Joiners
"Fantastic service, quality, and finish. From the initial meeting through to the 3d images and build, William couldn't have been better. He took time to completely understand what I wanted and we went through many drafts before they started on the construction. Clermont has brilliant carpenters working for them and the finish and build are perfect. Once painted (beautifully I must add), it completely finishes the room. Can't recommend highly enough!"
- jboyton
Woodsmith Ltd
Carpenters and Joiners
"We couldn't recommend Duncan more highly. He made us the most beautiful fitted cupboards for our lounge, as well as a bespoke home office. Great value for money, super nice guy as well as clean, tidy and courteous. We've already recommended him to friends and they're also thrilled with the work he's done. We're just deciding what work we want him to do next!"
- Sarah Jones
Shape London
Carpenters and Joiners
"Amazing personal service from Rob and the rest of his team. Lots of time and effort went into the design stage so we were comfortable with the scheme, materials and scope of works prior to installation. The quality of workmanship was very high and the follow up service dealing with any snagging has been exemplary. Have no hesitation in recommending them."

MW Creative Carpentry
Carpenters and Joiners
"Martin was recommended to us after our relatively small but highly bespoke projects were turned down by several large companies. Looking back, we’re very glad they did, as we are absolutely delighted with the work Martin did for us. Martin took the time to discuss with us what we were trying to achieve, understand how we wanted the end result to fit within our interior and came up with great design ideas. His craftsmanship is really excellent and you can definitely see the quality of his work in the various pieces he produced for us. Further, he is very responsive to emails and sticks to deadlines (or will let you know in advance if something takes longer than expected). Even better, the rooms he was working in were clean at the end of each day when he was on site. Overall, we can only give high praise to Martin for his work. We have recommended him to our friends and neighbours, who have all been equally pleased with his work."

Alex Burgess Carpentry
Carpenters and Joiners
"We hired Alex Burgess Carpentry to complete a number of carpentry jobs around our house, including door hanging, boxing stairs and fitting skirting. He was always completely focussed on achieving the best outcome and did an excellent job for us. We would definitely use him again."
- Kirstee_b
MJS of London
Carpenters and Joiners
"Bespoke panelled wardrobes (contemporary) for an awkward space with sloping ceilings. Excellent joinery: only reason for removing one star is the fact that the undercoat/primer was applied roughly and needed refinishing. If we had used a decorator for the finish I would have awarded 5 stars."
- market32
Thorsen Joinery
Carpenters and Joiners
"I found Klaus Thorsen through various local web sites with high recommendation. I needed some special shelving units and cupboards to be built in my study. The space was complex due to it being in a loft extension and my requirements were very specific. Klaus took my very rough drawings and measured up perfectly to adapt this to the actual space. The quality of his work was perfect and I am delighted with the result. As important was his attitude, which including being punctual almost to the second, being excellent to work with, ensuring not a speck of dust remained after he had finished and keeping perfectly to schedule. Indeed the only problem is that Klaus is booked up for several months in advance!! I would HIGHLY recommend him"
- alan1716
S&S Joinery
Carpenters and Joiners
"S&S Joinery provide bespoke joinery of a very high standard at reasonable price. They can provide anything from simple door linings, timber windows to very intricate curved staircases. I would certainly recommend them."
- Richard Hansen
Joseph John Ltd
Carpenters and Joiners
"Great work on a number of projects including decking, bespoke gates and fencing and a number of internal projects (windows, doors and more). Very reliable, does what he says to a high standard at a good price. Comes up with some good ideas too."

What is the difference between carpenters and joiners?


Carpentry and joinery are two specialisms within the overall trade of woodworking. There is certainly much overlap between the two trades – both primarily work with wood, of course – but one does not perfectly equal the other. At its simplest level, a carpenter will create, install or repair on site what a joiner makes in a workshop – the latter focusing on cutting and fitting joints. But there are also exceptions to this broad distinction. Some joiners will be involved in finishing and fitting certain pieces of bespoke joinery such as skirting boards and architraves, and many professionals work as both joiners and carpenters.

When deciding whether to employ a joiner or carpenter, it is best to pick your professional according to their experience on projects similar to your own. For example, installing bespoke joinery such as a staircase involves significant structural work and you might want to work with a carpenter with considerable experience in bespoke staircase joinery. You will often find you need to employ both a carpenter and joiner on a single project, and some firms will offer both skillsets which can simplify your overall hiring process.

Where can I find a good carpenter or joiner?


On Houzz there are many professional carpenters and joiners that specialise in providing a full carpentry service or bespoke joinery, whether dealing with fitted or freestanding, traditional or contemporary furniture. Simply search for a joiner or carpenter in the Find Pros category, then add images of designs that you like to an Ideabook and contact those on your shortlist. If you need reassurance beyond photos of their work and reviews of previous clients, then you might check to see if the carpenter or joiner is a member of The Institute of Carpenters (IOC), The Guild of Master Craftsmen, the British Woodworking Federation (BWF) or the Federation of Master Builders (FMB). Each asks its members to meet a certain level of expertise and abide by a code of conduct. Have a face-to-face consultation – basic brief and image references in hand – see which joiner or carpenter is the easiest to get along with and who best understands what you’re trying to achieve.


Important questions to ask your joiner or carpenter


  • How long have you been a joiner or carpenter?
  • Do you offer bespoke joinery as well as standard carpentry?
  • Do you have a portfolio of your previous work?
  • Who will be working on the project?
  • Are you a member of a trade organisation such as the Institute of Carpenters or The Guild of Master Craftsmen?
  • Do you design and build only or will you also fit my bespoke joinery or custom woodwork?
  • Will there be a range of materials, samples and finishes to choose from?
  • If I source a material myself, would you be willing to work with that?
  • How will I know what the final design will look like?
  • Do you require a deposit and if so, how much?
  • What is your proposed completion date and what happens if you can’t meet that?
  • Will you be working at my home or at your premises?
  • How much do you charge for delivery?
  • Is your work guaranteed and if so, for how long?
  • Do you have a stock of ready-made furniture that I can also look at?
