About Andrew Smith Carpenter, Buckhurst Hill, IG9 6BU

Welcome to Andrew Smith, Carpenter (formerly known as Smudge Creation).

My name is Andrew Smith and I have been interested in carpentry, designing and creating bespoke furniture and working with wood since I was a very young child. One of my earliest memories is of a toolbox received one Christmas from my Grandfather with ‘Handy Andy’ stencilled on the side.

I qualified for my City & Guilds in carpentry in 1990 and also did a City & Guilds in interior design in 2000. I worked making radiator covers and joinery for my family's firm until 2003 when I became self employed. I joined the Guild of Master Craftsmen in 2008.

I’d like to think that I specialise in fitted furniture and storage solutions such as wardrobes, alcove shelving, cupboards as well as bespoke furniture. Please look at the photos on my website and if you can't see anything resembling the idea you have in mind, then please contact me and I'm sure we'll be able to work together and succeed at creating your imagined item to your exact specification.

I also carry out all other kinds of carpentry work such as door hanging, decks, flooring, skirtings etc.

If it’s wood, anything’s possible!

Thanks,
Andrew Smith.

I can create the following:

  • Radiator Covers
  • Bespoke Study furniture
  • Bookcases
  • Alcove Shelving (with or without floating shelves)
  • Bedroom furniture
  • Bespoke furniture
  • One-off items to your design and specifications

I offer free quotes and estimates. Please visit my website for further information on how I can help you.

Please contact me today to discuss your requirements or for free friendly, professional and helpful advice. I look forward to hearing from you.

Please mention Trustatrader when calling. Thank you.

    "Andy did a great job creating our sliding wardrobes. He was easy to communicate with and punctual during the initial measure-up and provided clear quotes with some different wardrobe options for us to consider. When it came to the start of the project he was again punctual, friendly, and worked flat out until it was done, all in a very efficient and clean way. No fuss. Highly highly recommend."

    "Being in the medical profession, I naturally look for professionalism, craftsmanship, punctuality, reliability, value for money and polite interaction with clients. Needless to say, Andy has possessed all of these rare qualities throughout the 4 days that he spent at my place building an L-shaped wardrobe. He genuinely takes pride in the quality of his work. I did not appreciate what city & guilds qualified carpentry was all about until I have seen the finished product of Andy’s work. In addition Andy’s quote was one of the best I had. One bad news is that you may have to wait because he is very popular and highly in demand by clients. You cannot go wrong with indoor carpentry by Andy."

    "From the beginning of booking the work in, Andy has been organised and clear about date of availability and price. He has done a really great job and even made customisations for our pets so we can integrate their home into the sideboard. He was clear about when he would arrive and would always be on time and cleaned up thoroughly after he was done. Can’t recommend him enough!"
