I’m Christopher Smith and have been creating things with wood for the whole of my working life. In 1983 I established my own commercial workshop operating as C H Smith Cabinetmaker / Woodworker.

We continue to greatly enjoy every day your wonderful bookcase and the dining-room table, and also coffee table upstairs. Our friends often remark on your furniture very positively. One recent guest kept looking at the bookcase with great admiration. Thank you for all that you have done for us.
We are delighted with the library that you fitted for us. It feels as if it has been an integral part of the house for ever. We appreciate the craftsmanship that has gone into it, and I can see that it will continue to give us pleasure and service for many years.
The commitment you gave to the railings project was very impressive and the result was fantastic. I still love them and me and my friends find the railings to the front door so useful.

Jane was very pleased with her draw alteration. She said that it was clearly a professional job rather than a botch up by a “carpenter”!
I hope to contact you for some more windows in the future - we are so pleased with the ones that you made us and enjoy using them every day - they are beautifully made and i have recommended you to several people,
