Testimonials


Excellent cabinet making Gavin and Isa have just built and fitted a beautiful bespoke set of oak-topped cupboards for our lounge and we are delighted with it. They have also previously fitted bookshelves with cupboards in our office and the quality and service was why we returned to them this time.
The service, timing and craftsmanship were excellent and they are both lovely people too.
We are so pleased to be able to leave a review for them as we are sure that many others will be just as happy if they choose to use Shelves and Things.

Made to measure desk and bookshelf  Very professional, thorough and a lovely piece of furniture. We hope to use again in our extension at some point.

The work of a true artist craftman Gavin essentially carried out the work of a conservator on the antique oak door we selected for our C19th cottage. He made a new frame too and fitted all inc the door furniture. Beautiful job. A true artist craftsman.

Superb design and craftsmanship. We went to Gavin with a very ambitious and unique brief for a wardrobe.
We found him to be a real pleasure to work with on our project. Gavin put in a great deal of time and effort to help us realise what we wanted in terms of design and finish.
I would describe the end product as a labour of love by a real craftsman with an eye for design and a passion for what he does.
I would thoroughly recommend Gavin as someone to bring in on your project at the design stage and enjoy collaborating with him as we did.

Stunning work Gavin was very prompt at replying to my request for a shelves and unit to fit an alcove in my flat. When we discussed what me and my partner wanted he immediately got our style and new whatwould go nicely with the style of our home. He kept in touch throughout the process, which I thought was incredibly quick! And when the piece arrived it was absolutely stunning! I couldn't stop smiling at it. Beautifully made with great quality materials. I couldn't recommend him enough!

The shelves Gavin built were really beautifully made and were a centrepiece for the whole room.
The workmanship and attention to detail, alongside creative solutions to issues that arose during the job, left me confident I was in safe hands.
Every time I look at them they make me smile. Thank you shelves and things.
