"This part of the project was probably one of the most challenging builds of my career. Whilst the house was being built I marked out the datum points for the cornice and down lighters in the room with regard to the positions of the alcove units. I also laid trunking in the wall and lay all of the cables necessary for both sides of the room as the left hand unit contains the Blu-Ray Player, required 240v power etc. The first challenge was to work out the position of the hydraulic jack system for the L.C.D T.V panel and once that was finalized the lower carcases could then start to be fabricated from paint grade MDF. The jack required me to fabricate an access flap on a sprung stay and once that opened the T.V effortlessly rises and then turns toward the desired seating position within the room. The upper carcases were fabricated from Maple veneered MDF and featured 10mm thick glass shelves with the front aspect finished with fluted columns and ‘pyramid block’ detailing. Once again the finished project was finished/sprayed etc by Michenuals of London."
"Nicholas Jones is a talented and experienced craftsman who made a substantial and varied amount of bespoke cabinetry for us when we recently moved into a newly built flat.
The major items he made for us were a wall mounted display unit with individual compartments that were each illuminated by dimmable LED lights, a floor standing unit with a retractable housing for the television, storage and built in LED lighting, two bedside tables and two mirrored bathroom cabinets and a vanity unit. He also built a rack to display patchwork quilts, an elegant frame for a mirror and installed lighting in the glass fronted top of a secretaire.
We enjoyed participating with him in the design of these objects and found him an excellent communicator and a joy to work with. The standard of finish of all his work is outstanding and he is ingenious in finding solutions to practical problems of design and execution.
We are delighted with his work and unreservedly recommend Nicholas to anybody who wants quality, imaginative bespoke cabinetry."
