Duncan built us fantastic fitted wardrobes and new kitchen units in our 1970s listed flat in Gospel Oak. We would highly recommend him for his exceptional attention to detail, extremely high quality carpentry, and his willingness to take on new projects with enthusiasm, creativity and sensitivity. We have been trying to restore our flat in keeping with the original architecture, and Duncan really got on board with the project - he takes a huge amount of time researching (site visits, gathering pictures and ideas from you and online) to really understand what a project is about. It gives you lots of confidence knowing just what a perfectionist Duncan is in getting it exactly right. He's is especially great for a hands-on collaborative project - we were really closely involved with the design process all the way through and appreciated how patient he was with our slow decision making. No qualms at all in recommending Duncan - he did such a great job in our flat - the design and built quality are both flawless - totally worth it!

Duncan's work is fantastic. He is a complete perfectionist and takes upmost pride in his work.
We hired Duncan to create built in cupboards and shelves in our bedroom and the same in our two kids rooms - they look amazing and make the most of the space.
Duncan is lovely to work with and very knowledgable. I would 100% ask him back to do future work for us.
Woodsmith were commissioned to design and build our kitchen. The job they did was outstanding from start to finish. The design is beautiful, unique and extremely stylish and the standard of workmanship and finishing is second to none. Throughout the whole process from design to installation, Duncan and his team were a pleasure to deal with and the few small issues we had (inevitable in any project of this nature) were resolved efficiently and effectively. We love our kitchen and take daily pleasure in the attention Woodsmith paid to small details and the exceptional overall quality of the finished product. It has attracted numerous comments from people who have visited our home, and allowed us to inject something very unique and special into a standard Victorian terrace house layout. Highly recommended.

Duncan produced four beautiful cupboards for us after our building work. He was the ultimate professional he had some brilliant sugggestions about what would work. He had a great attention to detail and produced exactly what we wanted. His 3D plans were excellent. He was polite, kept to his schedule and was open to make adjustments and always kept the house clean after a days work. A brilliant carpenter could not have asked for anything better.

We had some bespoke shelving built along with some steps and cupboards. Duncan did an excellent job and was also very helpful during the design process. I highly recommend.

I am delighted with the excellent job that was carried out. Communication before hand when designing the storage space was efficient, then they were adaptable to feedback and changing plans to ensure I got exactly what I had hoped for. It came in on budget, was done promptly and I would certainly recommend them again. I wouldn't hesitate to use them if I needed more work done.
Kirsten, East Dulwich.
Such a fantastic job. We are so happy with our cupboard. Exactly like we imagined it or hoped it would look like. Great quality and finishing. Thank you so much!

We contacted Duncan to design a made to measure wardrobe for a space in our home. He was very approachable and gave us some good ideas and a very reasonable quote as well. We went ahead with the job and were more than pleasantly surprised with the results. The work was of an excellent standard - way beyond our expectations. The wardrobe looks fantastic and above all is extremely functional. We would not hesitate in recommending Duncan/Woodsmith and will definitely be using him in the future.
Saida & Hershil, East Dulwich.
We've recommended Woodsmith to several friends. The quality of work they've done has been amazing on both jobs - an airing cupboard and alcove shelving. So much so that a few other tradespeople have commented on the quality when doing other jobs. Duncan is meticulous in the finish of his work and is very friendly to have in the house when he's working, leaving everything clean and tidy each evening.
Tom & Sarah, Nunhead
Duncan has made a number of superb items for us including shelves and cupboards. He has great ideas for storage in difficult spaces and he's come up with some really inventive ideas for our house. We'll definitely be using him again later this year. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

I would like to recommend a wonderful company, Woodsmith, who have just built two fabulous Polyrey worktop/shelving units for me at St Thomas's Cancer Centre. The project was quite tricky, both in dealing with the construction and also the logisitics of working in a healthcare setting. They were completely professional, courteous, and have made two extremely neat and well made units. I knew they'd be good craftsmen though, when I saw how neat & tidy the workshop is!
