Jim installed a beautiful stair rail on our previously open staircase. He then painted the wood and surrounding wooden areas to a very high finish. We are really happy with the end result and would certainly use him again. He is a very pleasant person to have around. He delivered exactly what he said he would and was very clear and transparent about costs. We were really impressed by how clean he kept everything. He tidied everything up at the end of the day so there was absolute minimum disruption. We'd certainly recommend him.Report this
Excellent quality of work

I was looking for a carpenter to carry out some repairs to my conservatory which was suffering from soft wood in parts. I contacted one carpenter who wanted to rip my conservatory down and he rebuild it! I then contacted Jim from JK Woodcraft - he is very professional, calm and considered in his approach. Subsequent to the conservatory I also asked Jim to repair my hallway parquet flooring - again his workmanship was great. I would definitely recommend Jim if someone is looking for a good carpenter that charges reasonable prices.Report this

We found Jim's website through the internet. He gave us a reasonable quote for 3 built-in bookcases, which we wanted matching some existing ones. He completed the work efficiently, and the cases are beautiful. The workmanship is excellent, he was pleasant to have around, consulted us on every detail, and left the work areas neat and clean after each working day. We would thoroughly recommend his work to anybody wanting high quality carpentry work done.Report this

I work as a property manager in Cambridge and had been searching around for a reliable carpenter to complete some restoration work to a dormer window at an apartment that I manage. I found an advertisment for JK Woodcraft and so pleased that I did! Jim was quick to respond to my request and provide a quote for the necessary work which was very reasonably priced. Many other carpenters that I contacted didn't want to take on the job as the window was difficult to access due to the height but this wasn't an issue for Jim. His work is to an extremely high standard and the window has been transformed! Jims a very tidy worker and I have since asked him to replace a solid wood floor in a different property. Jims has real attention to detail and the floor looks great.Report this
Decorating - Painting and Wall paper etc etc

Jim did an excellent job painting our whole hall way as well as doing a feature wall and paint our lounge. Jim also hung several pictures and set up our surround sound system so neatly that it is hard to see the cable, saving my husband several weekends. We've had Jim back twice now and would not hesitate to use him again.Report this

JIm was not only quick on responding to our brief to restore and improve our original wooden floors, he was dedicated to delivering the highest standards. Everything was sourced and prepared prior to the work starting to ensure the it could be completed as planned. We did ask Jim to help us with extra amendments to the work and he wanted perfection so was quick to ensure that everything was completed as quickly as possible. The work around our house continues and Jim will continue to be part of it.Report this
Bespoke Cabinets & Shelves
27/01/2013 by nlugar
J k woodcraft have designed and installed bespoke cabinets and shelves to either side of a fire place in our Victorian house. What Jim offers his clients is a unique service, he is diligent and talented and able to visulise and realise his clients ideas. Unforeseen issues are quickly identified and resolved, and whilst his work is of the highest quality the cost and the time devoted to each piece is exceptionally reasonable. It is clear that Jim has a passion for what he does and does it well.Report this
Excellent work around our home

JK Woodcraft recently did some work at my property; making and hanging a new shed door, replacing a line of fencing in the garden, hanging two louvre doors in my kitchen and building a new shelving unit in my daughters bedroom (which have removable and changeable shelves). All of the work was carried out in time and within budget. I have used JK Woodcraft before, care and time is always taken and the end product is always finished to the highest quality.Report this
Great Job done on our Porch & Front Door Thanks

Jim gave us a very reasonable estimate for the job and explained our options for doing the job before he started. He completed the work in the time he estimated and worked hard to achieve a solid repair and fix and a great finish. We will definitely use him again when the need arises Great service thanks. Mr S.
