I just wanted to send a note to express our appreciation for the work you did putting up our enormous hall cupboard. It's a piece which simultaneously 'makes' the hallway and forms a great object in its own right. I'm thinking partly of the design, for sure, but no less importantly the attention to detail and remarkable precision with which the design is executed. So thanks very much - your high standard of workmanship really is valued, and once again we'll be recommending you to our friends.With best wishes,Justin.

We have worked with Charlie on numerous projects over the last 8 years or so. His joinery is of the highest quality and I realy enjoy his design input and knowledge of materials and joinery techniques. I would highly recommend him and his team.

Charlie and his team were brilliant. They were easy going and nice to work with….really helpful with technical and design advice while we developed ideas. They were fast, efficient and tidy when working in our home and the level of workmanship which they produced was absolutely outstanding. The kitchen , bathroom and cabinets which they made were of the very highest quality……they have turned out beautifully.
I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Kiwanda.’

Kiwanda undertook a very complex project for us. A 6 metre high double height double sided bookcase. It provides some 50 linear metres of book storage with a clear glass access walkway high up with glass rails
The project required Kiwanda to work from an architect's sketch to design a practical structure using his own specialist structural and glass engineers to meet Building Regulations. The structure was pre-manufactured in large pieces in the workshop and then assembled on site by Kiwanda's team, step by step. Kiwanda took charge of all aspects including the steel and glass installation.
We are delighted with the result which met the brief fully and looks even better. And it was far better value than London joiners could offer.

Charlie Batho has done work for me for many years. He is highly skilled and creative in carpentry and meticulous in attention to detail.
I have successfully recommended him to many friends.

Charlie was recommended by the contractor working on a large new private house in Sussex. We had been asked at a late stage to design items of furniture to contain audio visual equipment and media storage. Charlie and his team quickly assessed the design and fabrication requirements with competitive costing and then efficiently produced and installed the furniture to a very high standard to the delight of the client.
We will be using Kiwanda whenever possible and have no hesitation in recommending them.

Thanks for your help in material selection and for completing the tote boxes in record time.
Your technical knowledge and joinery skills are second to none.

Kiwanda Woodworking replaced a bell support cradle for St Mary's Church Brighton. They cooperated with a metal worker and provided a good quality service.
Their work was of excellent quality and carried out efficiently.
I have no hesitation in recommending them.

Kiwanda has provided us both with dependable service and excellent workmanship. They have taken our design briefs and worked them up into a range of things like our University icing wind tunnel and domestic furnishings with no fuss and delivered the final objects, large and small – often at very short notice, to the agreed price. They are not our nearest potential supplier but we have had no reason to seek out another as the combination of service, value and quality is right for us and I believe rather special.
