We’re both really happy with the bookcase, the colour and grain are fantastic and we are looking forward to filling it!
We are so happy with the bespoke 3m high wall-to-wall bookshelves and ladder that Ed has built for us. He is a wonderful craftsman and his work is so beautiful - very high quality and great attention to detail. We had very specific requirements in mind and he was able to accommodate them and added his own suggestions to make the bookshelf ladder in particular work better. He was always happy to discuss things and very readily available - no question too bothersome for him. His prices are very reasonable for the impressive standard of work and he was very mindful of our budget. He will certainly be our first port of call for future projects.
We had difficulty finding someone to create what we had in mind at a price we felt was reasonable. Then we found Ed. He spent over 2 hours with us making detailed notes and then emailed drawings which we amended until we were happy. Ed has built us beautiful cupboards with display shelving above. These were installed on Saturday and have transformed our living space, enabling us to get rid of an old sideboard creating a more spacious dining room. Ed's attention to detail is impressive and he is a real gentleman - a delight to do business with. Thank you!
Ed has made us twin bookcases and fitted them both sides of our living-room fireplace. We are most impressed by the accuracy and skill shown. Keep up the good work Ed!
Ed Garrett-Jones exercises the highest standards of craftsmanship, including working with us to get the specification of the commissions exactly right before he started. The finished products are very impressive, with every joint and edge a work of art. He took time to fit them precisely, working with the challenges of the walls in our house, none of which were straight. We commissioned four bookcases, from the small ( 0.9m X 2.3m) to the enormous ( 2.75m X 2.3m) and are very happy with all.
As these were pieces to stay in our home for the foreseeable future, we wanted high quality which future generations will enjoy, and that's exactly what we have.
Ed was a pleasure to do business with.
Ed is a really helpful guy who pays very close attention to detail. He makes sure that the final product is exacly what you are looking for.
Ed has just fitted a shelving unit made in oak which perfectly fits in with our existing oak floors and the feel of our living room. We are absolutely delighted, it has turned out just as we imagined. This is of course down to Ed's craftsmanship but also the effort he makes to fully understand your needs and tastes. What's more he calls, writes, turns up and delivers exactly when he says he will. It has been an absolute pleasure working with him, we would certainly use him again and unequivocally recommend him to othres.
I had an ambitious idea for a breakfast bar that came with storage but also needed to sit on a variable floor height, I had no clue if it could be made real or not. The result is beyond my imaginings and a lot of this is because Ed has gone above and beyond what I had asked for in order to really capture the look and feel that I described. It's really beautiful and looks like it was designed to be part of the room - already the neighbours are wanting one and asking for Ed's details.
Ed a huge thank you and can't wait to talk about the next piece of furniture!
Ed made us a bespoke oak headboard for our bed.
Design was easy as he adapted a prior design of his to our particular wonky house - all done through pictures and measurements over email. He also adapted the design so that we could get the piece up a narrow stairwell and then assemble upstairs.
The finished piece was just as hoped - fine wood and finish, classic design, very robust, looks great.
There was in fact one element of the fixing that in hindsight I thought needed adjustment - Ed came straight back out within a couple of days to sort it out.
All was carried out with charm, passion and efficiency - I would thoroughly recommend.
We wanted a table that would sit up to 16 people comfortably. Ed was very proactive from the start and discussed all design aspects with us. The result is a stunning piece of bespoke furniture that meets all our needs. In addition Ed also produced a beautiful bookcase, which again met all our specifications. The quality and the craftsmanship in both these pieces of furniture, are evident for everyone to see. Many thanks Ed.
