Beautiful bookshelves for an amazing price!

Nick has just completed a tricky big corner project - bookshelves sympathetic with a Georgian drawing room - and I'm absolutely thrilled with the result!, Always delightful to deal with, he's also very good at marshalling your thoughts right through to concept. He arrives with sample moulds and woods, measures up and does drawings and a quote immediately and a timeline for the work. Not only was it quick but he finished early. Very impressive. Working round Covid restrictions is no mean feat but he observed all protocols and on the day of delivery the bookshelves went up in a couple of hours and are staggeringly lovely! A huge amount of room for my large book collection and an elegant look which finishes the room. I can't recommend him highly enough and suffice it to say he is already working on a second project for me!

I don't hesitate in returning to Nick for any shelves, cupboards, bookcases etc as his work has never been anything less than excellent. I have used him lots of times for various jobs in our home. You have to wait for your turn as his services are in high demand but this reflects well on his work to my mind! His attention to detail is spot on, he thinks of all the technical things you might not have considered and the finished product is always of a high standard. I am very pleased with the home office worktop he has just made and fitted. No complaints at all!

The third time I have used Nick and he always performs to the highest standards delivering in this case shelving in an utility room. Being a new build, wall fixtures are tricky and at time almost impossible but Nick found just the right method and even delayed completion to have the exact tool and fixture to complete the job. All to budget; neat and tidy. Highly recommended.

Nick was a recommendation and we have been extremely pleased with the cupboards and shelving he put in the playroom. So much so that we are working with him again to put some in the study. He is highly efficient, thorough and the results are of a high standard. I would highly recommend him.

Understairs storage.
Customer Service

Nick is an excellent, personable, craftsman; who carefully designed and created two perfectly fitting understairs storage units, which were exactly as specified. The quality of the units has obliterated the anxiety of the prolonged wait for them to be finished. I would definitely use this craftsman again, for his sensitive understanding and skill.

Building a nnew cupboard in my small utillity room

This is the second project we have done with Nick Holt and as previously the finished article is to a high standard and fully meets our needs. We knew at the start that there would be a delay in starting as he was carrying out a very large job, but once clear he came and spent time with us to discus and draw up plans to make certain both, ascetically and functionally, our cupboard met our requirements. A further visit with base to double check his measurements and then the cupboard arrived and fitted perfectly. A first class tradesman always striving to go the extra mile. Fully recommend him.

Building shelves in cupboards and wardrobes to a high standard

Nick is a most conscientious and sympathetic craftsman who spent time considering our requirements, making sensible quiet alternative suggestions when appropriate, made his measurements and then went back to his workshop and in due course prefabricated most of the shelving. His standard of workmanship and finish are excellent and the only downside was that we had to wait our turn as his skills are in hot demand. I can unreservedly recommend him.

A rare find

We wanted to turn our small upstairs bedroom into a library room and tasked Nick with building fitted bookcases on three walls. He came to measure up (the room had sloped ceilings and wasn't exactly level!) and then made the finished bookcases in his workshop at Bodium. He took great care to match to a really deep F&B red, bringing samples across for me to colour match and exploring different combinations of primer and top coat until he and I were both satisfied completely with the finish. When Nick came to fit the bookcases he was very careful with our newly decorated home and has made a superb job of the whole project. We are delighted with the quality and craftmanship of his work and would not hesitate to recommend him. We are now working with him on a new project for fitted wardrobes...which we will have to wait for as he's busy until October!
