Hi Martyn, You could say we’ve gone a bit mad about our absolutely gorgeous new front door.  It’s a total masterpiece and feels as though we’ve actually moved house!

So monster congrats and huge thanks from both of us, and all the best for the future,

Nicolas and Lydia, Howarth


We absolutely love our new chest of drawers and bedside cabinets.  Everyday when we use them, we think how fantastic they are and what a change they are.  I only wish we could steal you for a month and have you tackle all our carpentry needs.

Susan, Ilkley


Hi Martyn, Alison really likes the door and says it’s lovely.

Granville, Saltaire


Hi Martyn, thank you again for such a beautiful door.  (My neighbours love it too!)

Yvonne, Menston, Ilkley


I’m absolutely delighted with the cabinets.  They are amazing.  They look very elegant and understated and are perfect for the room.  Thanks so much for all your hard work on them.  You have excelled again.  I’m so happy.  They have really made the room. 

Susan, Ilkley


Just wanted to say thank you once again for the most wonderful door!

Anna, Ilkley, West Yorkshire


Absolutely love it Martyn.  I get real pleasure walking through my front door now.  Such a simple thing but it makes me happy.

Thank you – you were worth waiting for. 

Elisa, Thorner, Leeds


Hi Martyn,

I’d just like to say thank you, the door looks amazing and exactly how I’d pictured it.  It’s made such a difference to the house and the hall way is much lighter.

The downside is, Janet wants the windows doing now…

Thanks once again, you’ve done a fantastic job.

James, Bramley, Leeds.


Hi, Thank you for the door.  It’s really lovely.

Jenny, Batley, West Yorkshire



A fine job indeed and a pleasure to do business with you, but the main thing is that Pat really likes it [the new door] and is extremely particular!

I hope we have the need to call on your services sometime in the future, we certainly will if we can.  Best wishes for continuing success.

Steve & Pat, Ilkley, West Yorkshire


Martyn fitted three exterior doors on our barn conversion recently. From the research I’d done and from working with Martyn through the design/ manufacturing process, I knew I’d be impressed but he totally surpassed my expectations. As I’m a bit of a perfectionist, this rarely happens to me but from the design, the quality of the doors, the workmanship, the fitting process and generally getting to know this really nice guy, I couldn’t recommend him highly enough.

Martyn’s attention to detail is so refreshing and I’m looking forward to working with him again soon.

John M, North Yorkshire


Hi Martyn,

I just wanted to tell you that I’m really happy with the door.  Your workmanship is second to none.  Amazing skill you have. Thank you.

Regards, Mark

Mark, Bardsey, West Yorkshire


Martyn,   We are all delighted with the window – it has transformed the view from inside and you made the frame more delicate and stylish.  A very professional job and we are most grateful to you for your skill and expertise.

Many thanks, Regards

Alun, Ilkley, West Yorkshire


Hi Martyn,  Many thanks for supplying and fitting the barn door.  We both really like the quality and finish of both the door and frame.  It’s a great addition to the barn.

Thanks once again, best regards

Dear Martyn, Patricia and I thank you very much for the work you’ve carried out.  Anyone who has seen the radiator cover and mirror have been full of praise.  Thank you once again for the attention to detail, the work done by you was to a very high standard.

Mr and Mrs Beard, Oakworth


Hi Martyn, Just wanted to sat that we arrived back home on Sunday evening and absolutely love the work you’ve done, the shelves and bannister look great… we’re really pleased.  Many thanks again Martyn.  Yet another great job! Kind regards,

Dom, Rebecca & Emily, Rawdon


Wonderful door – thank you!

Mr and Mrs Purvis, Glusburn


Martyn did a great job in restoring my solid oak bureau. This is an important piece of furniture to me, so I was keen to know that it was in good hands. He was helpful and knowledgeable from the start and his passion for working with wood is evident. I have no hesitation in recommending Martyn for the quality of his work, his expert advice and attention to detail.

Kathryn, Silsden, West Yorkshire


Thanks Martyn, the doors are terrific!

Mr Fisher, Ilkley


Dear Martyn, many thanks for delivering my new Oak door and frame all the way down here in Hampshire.  My wife and I had a good look at your work last night and we were very pleased with the fine craftmanship and excellent finish.  I am sure it will greatly enhance the house when it’s finished.  Best regards,

Chris and Rosalie Howitt, Hampshire


Thanks for a lovely gate, Martyn.  We’re very pleased with it and our neighbour thinks it’s super. Very best wishes.

Mr and Mrs Bunday, Baildon


We are very pleased with the windows – thank you for all your hard work.  The craftmanship is superb.

Derek and Barbara Hawkins, Leeds


Dear Martyn, May I thank you, yet again, for completion of what became a mammoth task for you during the last year.  You made what could have become a very disruptive process, much less painful and even pleasant at times.

We are thrilled with the quality and craftsmanship of the final outcome and I am positive it won’t be too long before we call on your services yet again!

With kindest regards

Julie & Jonathan Archibald, Oakworth

Martyn, what a fabulous job!  We came back today to a really wonderful wardrobe.  We love it, it looks great – like something out of a five star hotel.  Its a fabulous design, far better than we expected.  Its changed our lives, or at least a bit of it.  Thank you so much for getting it done before Christmas and so painlessly on our part.  Thanks again.

Jill, York

Hi Martyn, Very many thanks for the fabulous cabinet and computer desk – they are both brilliant.

Kevin Prime, Harrogate


Martyn has done a number of jobs for me, including wardrobes, cabinets and wood flooring. I have been consistently impressed with Martyn’s work both his friendly approach and advice on style, design and explanation of different types of wood for the piece I was asking about. I am very impressed with the high standard of workmanship and his clean and tidy work when he was working in my home. I have been pleased to recommend him to a number of friends who have been equally satisfied and tell me they would have no hesitation in recommending him to their friends also.

Kath Buttery, Saltaire


Dear Martyn, thanks for the excellent job you’ve done.
