Featured Reviews for Carpenters and Joiners in Chelmsford, Essex
Woodsmith Ltd
Carpenters and Joiners in Chelmsford, Essex
"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!"

Shape London
Carpenters and Joiners in Chelmsford, Essex
"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 in Chelmsford, Essex
"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."

Thorsen Joinery
Carpenters and Joiners in Chelmsford, Essex
"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"

Blake-Amos LTD
Carpenters and Joiners in Chelmsford, Essex
"We have had several items of furniture designed and built by Scott and a large piece of furniture remodelled. ALL work has been beyond excellent and dealing with Scott has always been a pleasure (from our end, probably not so great from his - we keep changing things!) Scott is excellent at translating our rather strange ideas into working pieces of furniture which then fit into our old and awkward house. Working with Scott you get an excellently designed, beautifully constructed, piece of furniture."
- Caroline Anthony

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 Chelmsford, Essex, 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 Chelmsford, Essex 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.
