We have just taken delivery of a set of Oak bookcases for a new room (study) which was part of a recent extension to our property. We looked at buying something generic but was impressed with Andy and made the decision to spend a little bit more and go for a bespoke design. We are both thrilled with the finished article and it was a pleasure to witness Andy putting the finishing touches to his work on site. We would be happy to recommend Chapman Bespoke Woodwork to our friends and will be doing just that.

Our sitting room hearth is brick and tile, topped by a mahogany mantelpiece. The adjacent TV stand has a brick facade but with a substantial mahogany, highly irregular shaped, top. Both were showing significant fault signs and needing replacement having been bespoke constructions designed and installed in 1985.

I learned of Andy Chapman’s bespoke woodwork business from a Google search and also found some internet newspaper extracts about his exceptional woodwork and finishing skills.

I phoned Andy and at his request, sent by email, a couple of pictures with approximate dimensions. Andy came to see us and gave us advice on woods and finish. We decided that the mantelpiece would be reproduced using sapele hardwood in a single piece, but due to the expanse of the tv stand/entertainment top, it would be better to use a first class veneer resulting in an identical finish to the mantel piece. Indeed, it would not be possible, in any case, to obtain a piece of hardwood the size of the tv stand top, and the top would have had to have been produced using about 4 pieces joined together. Perfectly possible, but we preferred the high quality veneered option.

Andy dismantled the existing set-up and took both pieces away to use as a pattern. About 10 days later he returned and installed the new mantelpiece and tv top. The finish and build quality are really superb. We would have no hesitation in using Andy’s services again although we have absolutely no doubt that the mantelpiece and tv stand top, will long outlast us.

We have recently had 2 alcove bookcases built and fitted by Andy (Chapman Bespoke). The experience has been excellent.

Andy came to visit at times convinient to us; offered helpful advice with regard to style and finish; kept us informed of progress; and installed the bookcases on the agreed dates. His work is of an excellent standard and he ensured the room was left clean and tidy once he had finished. In addition, Andy was also clear on work he was not able to undertake but provided us with contact names he felt might be appropriate.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Andy and are planning to use him again on another project.

Mark Costello, Great Hormead.

Andy created some amazing pieces of furniture for us, listening carefully to exactly to what we wanted and needed. He gave us some creative solutions and ideas to make the pieces exactly what we wanted. The quality of the pieces is truly amazing and we’ll be using him again in the near future.

I wanted a bespoke wooden bookcase to a very individual specification and Andy was recommended by a friend. Not only was his work to the highest standard but he had the bookcase finished and fitted in the exact time he quoted. This bookcase is a lovely feature piece in our drawing room and all our guests always comment on its craftsmanship. I will use Andy again in the future. 5 star product and a 5 star service.

I was recently fortunate enough to be introduced to some craftsmanship carried out by a talented cabinetmaker who has a clear and distinct passion for wood. This is obvious when seeing his work which shows a deep love for traditional skills. As an artist myself such painstaking care and love is evident and I could not fail to recognize this when confronted with his bespoke and other furniture, modern and classic. Andrew Chapman comes over as a self-effacing person possessing an attractive personality with the earnest desire of providing a high quality and beautiful piece for any contingency. I commend Andrew to you with a great amount of pleasure and admiration for such art with a certain belief that you will receive complete satisfaction.

I received a full length mirror, handmade by Chapman Bespoke Woodwork, as a Christmas gift from my partner. Andy matched the wood type and finish of the mirror frame perfectly to complimemt the rest of our bedroom furniture. I’m over the moon with it! I would definitely recommend this company, the craftmanship and attention to detail is second to none.
