The Wooden Workshop Customer Feedback

Memorial Bench

Just contacting you rather belatedly to thank you for the beautiful bench. It is absolutely stunning and something very special to commemorate my son. It has been much admired by friends and neighbours and more than one has said it brought tears to their eyes.

Log Store / Storage Shed

We are delighted with our shed. It was erected very efficiently by a team a friendly workmen who made it look fabulous. It is admired by many of the neighbours, which was important because of the proximity of listed buildings. Great work sensitively executed. Thank you.

Iroko swan necked gated

iroko-swan-necked-gates-the-wooden-workshop-oakford-devonJust a line to say thanks very much for installing the Iroko timber driveway gates at our home recently. The Iroko gates are beautifully made and more than met our expectations; and we much appreciate Dean coming to fit them on a Sunday. Overall we are really pleased with the quality of workmanship and professional installation of the gates. We would definitely recommend The Wooden Workshop to friends and colleges and will be contacting you again for any further timber building requirements.

Summerhouse With Bi-Fold Door

Summerhouse With Bi-Fold Doors

When we moved into our bungalow, we had a vision of the summerhouse we wanted at the top of a very boring grassy slope.  We came to see you and tried to explain what we wanted.  With your woodworking talent you were able to create our dream.  The summerhouse exceeds our expectations and we are so glad that we were introduced to you.
You and your team worked through horrendous weather and long hours to achieve the finished summerhouse.  The humping of bucket loads of concrete up to the top of the garden in the cold wind and rain for the base was a feat in itself. Getting the parts up to the top was a huge effort. The whole experience must have been a nightmare for you, but your persistence paid off.
The enjoyment we are going to have in the coming years is yet to be seen, but we can assure you we will enjoy!!
We cannot thank you enough or express how pleased we are with our summerhouse.
Mr and Mrs Davis – Gloucester – February 2016

Pitched Notice Board

Noticeboard 4

The new noticeboard/community information point is beautifully constructed and the design exceeded our expectations. It provides a secure, weatherproof location for all of our notices and community information.

Installation of the new noticeboard has considerably enhanced the surroundings in which it is situated and has attracted many positive comments from local residents.

Driveway Gates

Oak Gates Bespoke - The Wooden Workshop Bampton Devon - Copy


It is difficult to find the right words of praise for the Wooden Workshop. When I placed an order for a pair of drive gates, I asked that the finish be like furniture, and that was exactly what was delivered. The craftsmanship cannot be faulted, and the attention to detail during installation was beyond my expectation. Parts of the brick drive were lifted to accommodate new posts of a different size , and the replaced cut bricks were better than the original. If you are looking for an exceptional product, value for money, and a good old fashioned family run business whose policy is customer satisfaction, then look no further. You will not be disappointed

J.Butterwith – Hemyock – September 2014


Prompt and friendly service from all contacts. Worked well in appalling weather conditions to install the fence, which my wife describes as  “The best she’s ever seen”.

B. Wimpory – Witheridge – January 2014


An excellent job of closed board fencing. Of very good quality, erected and completed with precision and expertise in a very friendly and helpful manner. Definitely a firm I will recommend to others.

James Pugh – Witheridge – January 2014


6’x4′ Shed

We are delighted with our 6′ x4′ strongly constructed shed, the countersunk screws are well positioned. The substantial diagonal bracing, more than adequate floor and strong roof, it will we are sure, survive the strongest of winds. Even though the shed is small the window is a great asset. This shed is “A proper job”.

The service we have been given is efficient and friendly, we would highly recommend The Wooden Workshop to anybody, and will certainly return to them for any future purchase.

Our wooden box is so much more beautiful than the two plastic boxes it replaced. It quickly mellowed into the garden environment and now it looks like it has been there forever. Despite the torrential rain and driving winds our wood is completely dry. Thank you.

Potting Shed

Potting Shed

Just to say how delighted I am with the ’made to measure’ potting shed that you recently constructed and erected for me.
Quality of build and materials used is first class – delivery and erection with no fuss – a real pleasure to deal with from beginning to end.
Your company is quite young but your high standard of service coupled with the excellent build quality of your products will ensure that your company goes from strength to strength.
For these reasons I will have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone looking to buy the type of products that you offer. Why would they want to purchase from anywhere else? I doubt they could do better.

Taj Mahal Bird Table

Taj Mahal Bird Table

I wanted something special and unique to give as a wedding present to my friends who have a lovely big garden. Their big Hindu wedding inspired me, rather late in the day, to see if such thing existed as a Taj Mahal bird table.The internet said not, but the search led me to Wooden workshop, whose website advertised custom bird tables built to order.I emailed for a quote, and received a prompt, full reply quoting a very reasonable price, considering the materials and workmanship involved. Encouraged, I proceeded with the order…I’m so glad I did. I can’t recommend Wooden Workshop highly enough. From start to finish, they provided a first class service. Communication was excellent; I received pictures of the product in progress so I could feed back on how it was looking. Dean, the craftsman, was able to accommodate my request at that point to alter the table a little, and Laura kept me fully informed throughout, taking great efforts to ensure the delivery was convenient for the newlyweds. The service was typified by nice touches like offering to tie a bow around the gift (and asking me what colour I preferred!) I am thrilled with the table, it looks absolutely stunning. Superb quality of product, matched by levels of customer care I have never experienced before. The courier company failed to honour their agreed delivery date, despite Laura’s diligent phone calls with them. I think this says it all really…that even when I had paid the invoice and the table had been delivered, Laura continued to battle on my behalf for compensation from the courier company for the delay. I am one happy customer…thankyou so much Laura and Dean.

Driveway Gates and Dunster Bird Table

Driveways Gates                  P1010653

Since a chance meeting with Dean shortly after moving to the area last year, we have used The Wooden Workshop for several aspects of our project to refurbish an old farmhouse and buildings. They initially constructed a kennel block to our own design and because we were delighted with the outcome, we commissioned a large pair of gates and some vertical boarded solid fencing. This led on to renovations on a summerhouse and even a custom bird table as a Christmas present. We have always found that both Dean and Laura are eager to please, keep us well informed and deliver an excellent value for money outcome, hence we have recently committed to some more work. As they were a relatively new business, we were slightly apprehensive when placing our first order but this concern proved unfounded and if Dean and Laura can maintain their current business ethos we are sure that they will be very successful so you can order with confidence.

Game Rearing Sections

From the initial consultation to delivery of the last section, Dean and Laura were nothing but professional and helpful and kept us updated as the project developed through the stages. The rearing sections they designed and crafted were functional and durable, supplied at a very competitive price and on schedule. We will continue to use them for seasons to come.
