"Clayton and his team understand the subtleties of an interiors job. It’s so refreshing to work with a company that literally do the job, no fuss and no messing about. We had a time sensitive salon refit to do and it was done without any issues. Clayton is a calming leader and I will be forever grateful that we achieved my designs, cobbled together in Photoshop, without any issues. Thank you’"

Oliver Hazael Bespoke Carpentry and Plastering
Carpenters and Joiners in Bristol
"We hired Oli to extend our bathroom and carry out a complete refit. We were really pleased with the work. The quality of the finish was very high and Oli was adaptable to changes which we required as the works progressed. Oli was really engaged in the design from start to finish, and we are keen to use him again on other work. He and his team were punctual, tidy and professional. Many thanks."

MLM Carpentry Limited
Carpenters and Joiners in Bristol
"I hired Lucas and his team to renovate our two bedroom flat. What can I say - the most reliable, trustworthy team you could meet. It gets better .... workmanship to fitting a kitchen, fixing a complete new floor, tiling, plumbing, painting and more. Very good on keeping in touch, updating with receipts, ideas and problems if they arise. He even went back to the flat when not working and received a parcel that arrived for me (as not living there at the time) and put it in the kitchen for me to collect later. Would highly recommend."

Arborhouse

"Arborhouse built our new kitchen in our house which we were renovating. They were helpful at the design stage and then completed the work to a high standard. They used modern materials , stainless steel worktops, solid plywood cupboards and doors with coloured melamine fronts. We love our new kitchen and would recommend this team for building the kitchen of your dreams. They also made us a huge built in wardrobe and alcove shelving-again the work was of a high standard and we are delighted with all their work."

Vamp Industries
Carpenters and Joiners in Bristol
"Top marks for these creative guys! Vamp Industries recently designed & fitted a bespoke wood kitchen for me & I could not be more excited with the result. I supplied Dan & Lewis with a "look book" of images which appealed to me, torn from magazines, to give them a snapshot of the style I wanted. They soon came back to me with a great design, taking into account my thoughts, & coming up with space saving ideas for my bijou kitchen. I had already purchased a ceramic sink, & tiles for the sink splash back & these were incorporated into the design. We decided on solid wood units in reclaimed oak, & sweet chestnut, which had been sourced from Powys Castle.Dan & Lewis created & assembled the freestanding units & wall shelves in their Cardiff workshop. Fitting was completed in 2 days, speedily & efficiently, with Dan & Lewis clearing & tidying as they went, to minimize any discomfort to myself. Having a new kitchen fitted can be a lengthy, traumatic business but this was honestly so well coordinated in such a short time I was totally impressed. The quality of workmanship, & finish to the units, is excellent & I am so pleased with the result. The kitchen seems much larger now due to clever use of space & units designed specifically for my requirements. Vamp Industries have provided me with a unique kitchen & I can confidently recommend their services & the high standard of workmanship."

Westwind Oak Buildings Ltd.
Carpenters and Joiners in Bristol
"Weatwind Oak designed a two story oak framed extension for me last year , I like the oak building was very green as to how it would work although I had done many building projects in the past . I need not have worried from the start of the project the advice and service was exceptional . First of all we worked through the best design to suit my needs , as we are in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the Cotswold escarpment this needed to be both practical and aesthetically pleasing. I visited the factory on several occasions which was fascinating to see the progress and the wonderful craftsmanship that took place . When the Oak frame and SIP panels were ready they were delivered , the team arrived on site and in 8 days very efficiently erected the whole building . To sum up the project was delivered on time on budget with excellent customer advice and support . If you would like to see or stay in this building you can hire it , it is called Hirons Piece and is marketed through Jigsaw Holidays there lots of photos ."

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 in Bristol, 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 in Bristol 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 Bristol carpenter or joiner?


On Houzz there are many professional Bristol carpenters and joiners that specialise in providing a full carpentry service or bespoke joinery in Bristol, whether dealing with fitted or freestanding, traditional or contemporary furniture. Simply search for a joiner or carpenter in Bristol 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 in Bristol is the easiest to get along with and who best understands what you’re trying to achieve.
