Bespoke Joinery FAQs
Bespoke joinery is a type of woodworking that involves creating customized, one-of-a-kind pieces for specific spaces or projects. The possibilities for what types of projects bespoke joinery can be used for are nearly endless, but some common examples we do for our clients include
- Furniture such as tables, chairs, cabinets, bookcases, and beds.
- Doors and windows, which can include everything from large, ornate front doors to intricately designed stained glass windows.
- Staircases, from simple straight staircases to complex, winding designs for that can fit with your loft or attic conversion
- Architectural features, including decorative moldings, paneling, and wainscoting
- Outdoor spaces, such as decks, pergolas, and trellises
Overall, bespoke joinery is a versatile woodworking technique that can be used for a wide variety of projects.
Bespoke furniture simply means that the piece of furniture is custom-made to suit the specific wants and requirements of the customer. It is created uniquely for you and is made to fit the shape, size and dimensions of your choice, using materials that both you and the joiner have agreed upon.
Bespoke joinery and regular joinery differ in several ways, including the level of customisation, quality of materials, and level of craftsmanship involved in the process.
Regular joinery typically involves the creation of standard or pre-designed woodwork, such as doors, windows, and furniture, using pre-cut and pre-processed materials.
Bespoke joinery, on the other hand, is a more specialised and personalised form of joinery that involves the creation of unique, one-of-a-kind woodwork to meet the specific request of the customer. Bespoke joinery also uses high-quality materials and requires a greater level of skill and expertise to produce.
Whilst bespoke joinery may cost more than regular joinery, it results in a unique product that will meet your specific needs and preferences.
Whilst bespoke joinery and carpentry are both skilled trades that involve working with wood, they are not the same service.
Carpentry is a general term that encompasses a broad range of woodworking tasks, such as framing, roofing, and finishing. Bespoke joinery, on the other hand, refers to the creation of custom-made wooden components and structures that are specifically designed to fit a particular space or purpose.
Bespoke joinery will often take longer than standard joinery due to the level of detail and craftsmanship involved.
As you might expect, different pieces and projects will take varying amounts of time. For example, a simple joinery piece such as a shelf or small cabinet can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks to create. More complex pieces, such as a large wardrobe or custom kitchen cabinetry, may take several weeks or even months to complete.
A wide variety of materials can be used for bespoke joinery projects. It all comes down to the requirements of the customer the suitability of different materials in relation to the project.
Some of the most commonly used materials in bespoke joinery include:
- Wood, including oak, ash, walnut, cherry, and mahogany.
- Medium Density Fiberboard
If you have any specific requirements when it comes to materials used for you own bespoke joinery piece, simply let us know in advance and we’ll be sure to take your request on board.
Yes! One of the key benefits of bespoke joinery is adapting to unique shapes, sizes and dimensions so you can get the piece you desire in the location that you want.
Some common pieces that need to be customised to fit specific or unusual dimensions include; wardrobes, an alcove for TVs, shelves, storage cupboards and fixtures.
Like other pieces of furniture, bespoke joinery pieces need to be looked after properly in order to ensure they stay looking their best for many years to come.
Some helpful tips for maintaining your bespoke joinery pieces are:
- Regular cleaning with a soft cloth or feather duster to remove dust and debris. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners that could damage the wood or finish.
- Avoid exposure to moisture by using coasters and mats for glasses and dishes, or a tablecloth for dining tables.
- Keep out of line of direct sunlight
- Refinish as needed to ensure long-lasting protection
What Our Clients Say
Don't normally do reviews like this but I feel I must on this occasion after having several companies in at my elderly mother's house to convert a stair so we could get her a chairlift to assist her with her mobility we were met with comments like "waste of time" and "impossible". We were lucky to have met Dave and his approach and attitude of yep I can make and alter that for you. Thank you will never be enough from me, a great guy and a great job.
Just want to thank Davie for a lovely conversion to our summer house, to allow us to use it for an additional workspace, always dubious about what some contractors say to me in the past, but no worries here whatsoever. Can't thank them enough for this...we have used them after this for other works in our house and will continue to do so.
A big thanks to David and his son Brian first class service from them both made a great job of fitting a new insulated loft hatch and loft ladder for us to give us additional space in the the house maybe just as small job for them but a massive improvement for us did exactly what the said they would do great job clean and tidy at a very reasonable price.
Big thanks to David for my new bathroom window great to find a joiner that can actually make something from wood to match what we already have in place just a plain wooden window with a small top opening made exact to match the other window good price good service and on time very happy and will use again later this year for our wooden deck.
