New Year, new projects!

Well last year was definitely our most definitive and successful yet! It brought along big changes for us!

Moving workshops in the middle of the year was hard work and a lot of man hours but was most definitely worth it! It has enabled us to grow a little more. We had so much space, that we were able to install a spray booth and can now include this within our services, Matthew would now like an even BIGGER workshop!

During 2017 we have undertaken a lot more commercial work, which we have found has varied the type of jobs we are carrying out! For example, we are currently making bespoke bold red lockers for a business in West Sussex. Last year we made and fitted out a bakery and also an office in Savile Row, London! We would say we are moving up in the world but truthfully we are still a small, family run business that will put the kettle on for you, if you come to visit our workshop!

The Matthew Roberts Carpentry Team are excited about the year ahead and please do watch this space for more pictures of our upcoming projects.

Happy New Year to you all!

Cottage wardrobe

We fitted a bespoke solid oak ledge (batten, if you are in the north) door wardrobe this week, in a lovely old cottage in Crowbourugh, East Sussex. The left side of the unit goes into an alcove making the unit double depth, giving shelving in the back and plenty of space in the front. The bespoke doors are made of solid oak and we tried to keep the boards ununiformed to keep with the cottages rustic feel, with hand fitted tongue and groove joints. The T-hinges and knobs are hand forged and finished with black wax.
