Joe has turned my vision into reality way beyond my expectations! Joe took the time to understand what I both needed and wanted - from defining a creative style that matches me to all the practical touches that make this desk so great. Throughout, Joe was professional with good communication and the finished product is of the utmost quality with wonderful attention to detail made. I love the result and would recommend Joe to anyone.

Where to even start with Joe. His work is absolutely phenomenal. I had a vision for a feature wall but had no clue how to make it happen. I spoke to a few local joiners who had either no interest or no clue how to make it work. After speaking to joe and showing him the plans I knew I had the right man for the job!

He’s passionate about his work, meticulous and incredibly talented. Plus, he’s just a lovely guy. I would recommend Joe to everyone. In fact, I’ve already asked him to create more pieces for me!

Joe has been an absolute pleasure to work with.
Not only he has done the job to an exacting standard, but he also took his time to work out the best possible way to make my design a reality. 
Very knowledgeable, experienced and always on time.

"Joe understood the brief completely and gave us exactly what we wanted. It was a slightly more creative job and Joe was great at problem-solving any issues with wonky walls etc. Communication was great too.

I can highly recommend."

"We commissioned Joe to make a pair of French oak shutters based on a rather hazy picture we'd taken from an old house. His attention to detail both in the subsequent design and build was second to none.

He thought long and hard over the proportions and details 

along with the type of paint that would best show off the fine wood grain. He also installed the shutters and spent a long time making sure they looked absolutely perfect. We're delighted with the finished result and look forward to working with him again on future projects."

"Joe recently completed a bespoke bookshelf with storage units, which he created to the precise specification that we originally discussed. The quality of his workmanship is extremely high, and it’s clear from the finished product that Joe takes pride in his work. We would recommend Joe and will certainly use him again in the future."

"After my husband died 18 months ago, I wanted to have a memorial sun-dial made for him from the remaining stump of a tree from my garden.  On searching locally, I found Jozsef.  The sun-dial he produced is amazing and exactly what I wanted. Jozsef is dedicated to his work and is indeed very talented.....his love of wood and working with it is obvious, he is meticulous and thorough. He is an Artisan of the highest calibre. Jozsef is an extremely genuine person who, I should like to commission to do more work in the future."

"Joe from Workshop No 8 replaced some over complicated kitchen cupboard doors with straight forward opening ones. The doors were custom made to a very high standard, as they were being fitted to a kitchen in a flat I rent out and I wasn’t in the UK, I left all the arrangements to Joe and everything went off without a hitch. My tenants were very pleased with the results and I would have no hesitation in recommending Workshop No8."

Joe has designed and built a number of bespoke items for our studios and we couldn't be more satisfied with the results. He is easy and attentive to work with, thorough in his attention to detail, and his final build quality of the highest possible standard. Joe's own design work is slick and impressive, but he has an equal talent for accurately matching historic design and context, something that is important in studios going back 30+ years, and that versatility is something that we particularly value and keeps us calling him back for more jobs, no matter how big or small."

"Joe constructed a new garden shed for us, built from scratch, rather than a pre-constructed kit. His work was of an exteremely high standard and was delievered on time and within the budget quoted. He was both polite and trustworthy, and I felt confident enough to leave the house keys with him whilst at work. He left the site clean and tidy, both at the end of each working day, and after the job was completed. I would highly recommend Joe's work."

"I have known Joe for approximately 18 Months. Throughout this time he has undertaken various carpentry jobs involving the making and erection of bookcases + other works.

Joe produces work of an extremely high calibre and takes pride in his work He is conscientious, reliable and diligent in all he undertakes. Additionally his rates are reasonable and I would highly recommend him as a true craftsman"
