Business overview

Ally Fraser Wood Works. Bespoke and unique furniture, boutique shopfitting and reclaimed timber specialist.

Ally Fraser Wood Works is a small company based in Sheffield offering a bespoke furniture making service. We will work with you on a personal basis to determine your needs and together create a solution that is not only practical, but fits in with your home or commercial environment.

Every job Ally Fraser Wood Works undertakes is unique. We haven't make the same thing twice. While we mainly specialise in furniture, fitted or freestanding, that doesn't mean we won't make anything that you might want. Whether that be a bespoke staircase, a boutique shop display, or a prop for a TV advert. The products we make may vary, but everything we make has a bespoke and unique design, built to last with quality manufacturing, materials, fittings and finishes.

Ally studied furniture design at Sheffield Hallam University and went on to complete a 3 year NVQ in wood machining at Leeds College of Building as part of his apprenticeship. Ally spent 5 years working for local companies manufacturing and installing joinery and carpentry products before setting up his own business in 2011.

Ally has made many kinds of wooden products from wedding cake stands to Oak windows and doors, bedside cabinets to entire boutique shop fits.

I replaced a rather dated 70's patterned glass handrail with these slender full height Oak spindles. They divide the space without creating a solid barrier allowing light from the upstairs window to filter through.

A stylish and practical solution for bicycle storage in the home. I designed and made this unique piece at a customers request for a means to store their bike and associated items. Your bike fits effortlessly into the slot, with a pigeon hole for quick grab items and drawers for helmets and clothes.

I made this bench as the final piece for my furniture design degree. It has an upright end for being alert and a reclined end for relaxing. The Ash was steam bent to create the individual shapes. An ergonomically designed welded steel frame holds it all together.
This kids playroom was tidied up with a combined storage and seating unit and a small bookshelf. I made it adult friendly by cladding the tops and sides with Ash, fixed down with contrasting Black Walnut plugs covering the screws.

This side of the island unit shows the overhanging breakfast bar area allowing bar stools to be used for dining. The framework is painted softwood, with doors made to match the existing kitchen units.
This pair of storage units either side of a fireplace were made in keeping with the traditional look of this London house. Framed and beaded doors, moulded edgings and brass hardware finishing the look.

I made these two side tables for a customer who liked the dark stained Oak of her hand carved stool. The tables have a painted hardwood frame with a solid Oak top.

Versatile and reliable work finished to a high standard

Ally was recommended to me by a former colleague of his who praised his work. We have had several jobs done by Ally this year, all first class, and we hope that he will be doing more work for us in the coming months. Our home is small and needs careful fitting and fixing with excellent storage etc to make the most of the space. We have had superb shelving, high level storage, custom radiator cabinet provision with seating, adaptation of ready-made furniture into a customised and more useful form, and in general a wonderfully helpful, versatile and reliable service with a can-do attitude. He is a good listener to our demands and hopes and very practical and intelligent in his approach, and his work is finished to a high standard with a good attention to detail. We value his pleasant, skilled and patient support in realising our new home as the space we need it to be.

Quality workmanship- delightful results

I was given Ally's business card by a shop on Sharrowvale Road in Sheffield who highly recommended the standard and quality of Ally's workmanship. We wanted a fitted cupboard and floating shelves made for the alcoves of our new living room. We'd really struggled to find a reliable carpenter/joiner who we felt really got what we wanted- too many quotes we'd had were using cheap wood and doing a rushed job we knew wouldn't last or look anywhere near like the quality finish we wanted. Ally however had a great eye for detail and understood immediately what we were after- we are absolutely over the moon with the results. They've completely refreshed our living room. He's extremely tidy, hard working and good company to have around! We will definitely use him again for future work
