The floating shelves (chunky shelves) that I make are individually trimmed on site guaranteeing a perfect fit for any wonky alcove or period Victorian house that may have not very straight walls. When the floating shelves are finished there are no visible fixings or seams and every shelf is fine sanded and gap-sealed to the wall. The shelves are fixed very firmly and can usually (depending on walls etc.) take loads in excess of 40Kg. The Floating shelves I make are around 42mm thick, 50mm is the well known Ikea thickness. Lighting options include the traditional halogen lights, which are not recommended any more due to heat considerations and now I also have available LED lights, with both the traditional round under cabinet look and the long strip LED lights too. Thickness's of the shelf to accommodate such lights depend upon your selection. In the past lights of one form or another have been used in shelves as thin as 25mm upto 50mm and beyond. I lovingly pre make, made to measure, hand crafted, traditional and contemporary and classic, wood or painted finished Floating Shelving, with a fast and easy and friendly service covering addresses. My reclaimed wood Floating Shelves are a must for anyone who wants to recreate that real authenticity and strength. I source reclaimed oak and pine from all over the uk.

All my Bespoke Floating Shelves are fitted with no visible brackets or supports showing, unless you require a more traditional look, and require under shelf supports. I will also be sure to not leave until strength and a fine finish has been attained. I pre make and pre finish everything as much as possible before I come to install and final adjustments are made to gain that special hand crafted finish with no visible fixings or seams and every shelf is finely sanded and gap-sealed to the wall. My shelves are fitted using 10mm or 12mm threaded rods and are drilled directly into the wall for maximum support.

I can hide all cables inside the cabinet to avoid the mess of cables that you usually find around TV's and videos and of course give it that unique fitted look. Along with a whole range of finishes including Oak Birch Walnut, I also have a spray booth enabling me to produce high gloss or satin and matt sprayed finishes with that unique tough long lasting finish.

My bookcases have options including doors on the front or doors fitted low down making cabinets or cupboards. Fitted Wardrobes fitted either side of my fire place. I can design your wardrobes to your required specifications, and produce a sketch for your approval. Once the design is agreed and you decide to go ahead with the work I will need to take a 33% deposit to cover materials I will use MDF or Laminated boards or real wood for the wardrobes depending on our agreement. If you require mirrored doors or sliding doors or hardwood wardrobes the deposit may be slightly higher rising to as much as 50%, with payment due upon completion, and cover areas such as addresses. If you decide to contact me I will let you know immediately my availability, and if you wish to proceed to obtaining a no obligation quote, then all I need is your email address location and design/budget. Or if your just investigating prices then I will send you out past projects and their associated prices. Lighting inside wardrobes Clothes rail LED strip lighting is fitted instead of the normal hanging rail. This interior lit hanging rail has a sensor which turns on a light automatically once you open the door. Wardrobe lighting is low energy, but bright enough. Low-level lighting is an extremely useful addition to your fitted wardrobes, but it does cost. Typically costs for these kinds of hanging rails to measure, order, collect and fit comes in at about £190 per rail. However incorporating hanging rail lighting into wardrobes has clear advantages. Lead Times Lead times are discussed, if you need something fast, then I will let you know what I can do. I am happy to work overtime if it helps one of my customers.

Welcome to hardwood bookcases. I have both a manufacture and fitting service available. Hardwood bookcases can be stained or waxed or Danish oiled, so feel free to inquire for your particular hardwood bookcases requirements.Hardwood bookcases have worked out of a unit in Romford, North East London since 2007. I specialise in making and fitting hardwood bookcases. My preferred materials are Walnut; Oak; Birch; Mapel or any of the hardwood veneered MDF and Ply products, depending on strength and design requirements. Lead times are usually 2 - 3 weeks. Prices are given on a job by job basis so feel free to get your quote.How might you make your hardwood bookcases? What could turn your hardwood bookcase into reality? Ans: It's a process that starts with the right materials. Next you need accurate specifications, then it's just a question of matching the two in the right mix. Specifications vary according to requirements. If in any doubt just drop a line to gain the right shelf for you.Some cabinets can be made with 18mm mdf whereas others need to be a composite of 2 ply 12mm with an 18mm seperator. Ofcourse one of these choices is down to design, but if you want thin and strong, then the material may need to be upgraded to pine or even oak! Costs vary ofcourse, and a mixture of materials could get you what you want at a much lower cost. Why not consider turning your ideas for shelves into reallity using information collect here? Most people when thinking of making floating shelves are torn between using solid wood and the ultra thin, usually high gloss, or pretend wood bought at some high street stores. Well there is an alternative. There are various stages that have to be followed. Stage 1: find the measurements of the shelves you require including the length width height and quantity. Stage 2: Here you'll need to decide on the materials, this can simply be a question of money or finish. I'll explain: Solid oak is exspensive and requires lots of hard work to make it the right size and therefore fit but the finish will always be great regardless of it being painted or varnished etc. Or you could chose MDF which is much cheaper and also takes less work to make it fit and it's just as easy to paint and stain as oak. But ofcourse with MDF you run the risk that your shelf fail, due to excess loads. So oak is a cost=lose quality=win strength=win and MDF is a cost=win quality=win strength=lose. It would have to be excess loads that made a MDF shelf fail. So perhaps the middle ground is MDF with a strengthend core? Stage 3: The fitting or putting together of your project is next. This happens with either fixings bought somewhere or by using fixings you've made. I'd recommend using iron rods when it comes to floating shelves and good glue and screws when it comes to hardwood bookcases. Stage 4: You could view previous job prices: Example completed home library shelving job prices.

The difference between made to measure joinery, fitting some joinery into position that has been made to fit as best as possible, but is free standing vs the made to measure joinery that has the fitted look. Joinery that has been made to meaure and as a finishing touch looks fitted also and has no gaps, and is not free standing, it may also fit floor to ceiling and it looks great!
