By saying general carpentry, I am talking about jobs such as hanging doors, putting in architraves, skirting boards and picture rails, fitting kitchens and designing and constructing built in shelving.
I work fast, while producing tidy, well finished results.
On more complex jobs that require different tradespeople and professionals, I make sure I keep in good communication with everybody involved, to ensure no time is wasted, and that works can proceed in the correct order.

The Kitchen is often the heart of the home and great care should be taken to make sure that the layout of cupboards, worktops, cooker, hob, sink, fridge and other utilities makes the best use of the space available.
Once the kitchen design has been agreed on, It is important that the carpenter works closely with the plumber and electrician to ensure that the installation goes smoothly.
When hanging a door, accurate measurements and precise cuts are vital if it is to fit correctly and swing nicely. A hinge, even half a millimetre out may cause problems, such as creaking as it opens and closes, or not quite fitting in the frame snugly. These days I tend to use a router when cutting the recess in door for the hinge to sit in, as this is a great way to get a perfect fit each time.
