Kenny has been tremendous from start to finish. He listened carefully to our vision for our large kitchen larder cupboard and then helped us to develop a design that complemented our kitchen beautifully. The quality of the finished cupboard was fantastic – he really pays attention to the detail. Kenny was very clear about price and timing and sent us progress photographs from his workshop. It was really interesting to see the journey from our vision to the finished article. Mr & Mrs Paton.
We commissioned Kenny to make us a contemporary fire surround after seeing a similar one he was offering on the internet. Our fireplace is not on a flat wall but sits in a corner with 45 degree sides. We explained what we wanted to Kenny who said "No problem!" and took great care in interpreting our vision into detailed plans - and not minding at all that we were only used to feet and inches! Several draft plans went back and forth until absolutely perfect. We explained that we had the builders still with us - but this posed no problem for Kenny - he just organised a timed delivery with his courier - and when the surround arrived, it fitted perfectly! Thank you Kenny, look forward to our next project with you! Lin & Philip Hunter-Mayer.
We engaged Dowels & Dovetails to make a custom version of their elegant console table as a memorial piece of furniture along with a matching walnut literature rack for church. Kenny worked patiently with us to get the dimensions and the finish of the pieces just right. We are delighted with the result which shows a high level of craftsmanship as well as Kenny's flair for design. We would recommend Dowels & Dovetails to anyone who wants a high quality piece of furniture made with care, which will retain its beauty for many years to come. Mr Chris Duncan.
We asked Kenny to build a contemporary fireplace surround for our sitting room, and after several email conversations asking all the questions one would hope to hear we felt comfortable in proceeding with the order. Kenny, despite his youthful looks, is a wealth of knowledge and understanding of his chosen profession. His enthusiasm and technical skills show in the wonderful piece he produced for us and his attention to detail is beyond his years. In conclusion I would gladly recommend and encourage Dowels and Dovetails for any fine woodworking needs. Mr & Mrs Kinnear.
Kenny produced some cupboards to fit in a space under newly contracted stairs to the converted attic. All his work was meticulous and he has gone to a lot of trouble to ensure that the finished product is to my complete satisfaction. The product fitted the niche admirably! One bonus of using a local craftsperson such as him is the opportunity to find out why certain woods are used in different situations and to have an input into these decisions. I will certainly recommend him to others. Mr Russell Ecob.
I would like to thank Kenny and say how impressed I was with his work. He was professional and friendly whilst keeping me informed at each stage. You can tell how much he loves his craft & art. Once again many thanks. Mrs P Grant.
My husband and I were looking for a specific piece of furniture to fit into two alcoves in our living room but all the ones we saw in the furniture stores were not quite what we were wanting. When we contacted Kenny he came out and produced some drawings of the design and sizes we had in mind. We are very pleased with the finished cabinets which were made in oak with a lovely finish. I would recommend Dowels & Dovetails to anyone looking for furniture with that little bit extra. Mrs & Mrs Roberts.
I was very impressed with the way that I was kept up to date with the progress of my furniture and radiator cabinet. I really liked the personal touch in the fitting of the radiator cabinet and Kenny made sure that I was happy with the tables. I would definitely recommend Dowels and Dovetails. Mrs Lesley McColl.
We had an area of our dining room that was very hard to find a suitable item of furniture for due to the shape of our walls. Kenny was recommended to us by a friend, and we are delighted with the cabinet he designed and made for us in oak. Mr & Mrs Roland.
We have had furniture made in the past by other craftsmen; both of which are now retired. We found Kenny at Dowels & Dovetails as we looked for a new maker. We are quite old fashioned and if we’re honest we were a little apprehensive about the prospect of dealing with someone new. Kenny was great in his approach and attitude in reassuring us at each stage throughout the project. We are so pleased with our cabinet and would highly recommend Kenny’s work. Thank you. Mr & Mrs Clarke.
