61,254 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

Joinery Studio
Carpenters and Joiners
"Thank you Donal you are a true professional, I wanted to do something with an area in my living room but had no idea what to put in the space. You listened and came back with designs and when we decided on the design you built me a fabulous unit to fit into the area. I call it my Wow wall. Thank you so much for a beautiful design and build."

DS Interiors
Carpenters and Joiners
"David Shannon has been making custom carpentry for many of my clients over that past few years. His attention to detail and craftsmanship is second to none. He is very creative and listens to both the clients and my requirements. He always provides clients with hand drawn plans of what their finished furniture will look like. He provides detailed quotes and is good value for money. He always gives a start and finish date and sticks to it. The furniture is made off site in his workshop so causes the least amount of disruption to my clients. He is respectful and well mannered and my clients love him! He has made wardrobes, kitchens, window seats, library units, panelling, coving, bathroom vanity units, beds, lockers, and bespoke pieces of furniture for my clients. I am always very happy to recommend David to my clients and will continue to do so. If you are looking for the best with a brilliant service then David Shannon is your man! Thank you David for all our successful projects!"

Complete Carpentry Services

"Steve of 'Complete Carpentry Services' is a master craftsman with his carpentry skills. I am an artist and designer and Steve interpreted all my ideas, and brought them to life. I like to reinterpret salvaged materials of age as they were made with heart, of high quality, and built to last. Steve made me a stunning victorian french kitchen, fitted heavy 100 year old salvaged doors, converted an old door into a wardrobe, and created a stunning front deck and garden under challenging conditions. Steve is an undiscovered talent, the Jamie Oliver of carpentry."

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?
