The spraying was completed by Michenuals of London.

2 x Triple Fold Shutters, Vauxhall SE1

A very complicated build which was very challenging to complete due to the opening being very out of square. A very satisfying build to complete and the client was very happy with the finished result as it acted as a deterrent plus with the shutters able to open independently top to bottom this allowed the lower half to be closed but still allowing light into the clients living room.

It also had to be dismountable so as to be used again.

Testimonials

"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."

'Mr and Mrs. Beecroft - Jan 2017'
