About Andrew Smith Carpenter - Carpenters & Joiners in 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 was brilliant from day one. Super friendly, always on time, always kept me updated with progress and transparent with pricing. He transformed my dark and dingy dressing room into a beautiful and bright space with mirrored doors. His craftwork was impeccable. I was so impressed. Every night, during the job, the room was left immaculate- he was really tidy, careful and considerate throughout. I left Andy my keys. He respected my home and is trustworthy. My parents were taken back at how good his work was. The job was definitely value for money when you consider Sharps bedrooms wanted 5 times the price that Andy charged! Andy was also really flexible, I changed my mind on one unit and he changed it the next day with no grumbles. I love my new dressing room. Thank you so much Andy - it’s now my favourite room in the house!"

    "Andy was well organized, polite and professional. He made us a very nice built in wardrobe exactly to the design we wanted. He finished off the job very quickly and to a high standard. Would highly recommend his services!"

    "This is the second time we've asked Andy to do some carpentry work for us and we highly recommend him. He is clear, organised, professional, reliable, punctual and skilled. He first built some cupboards in a sloped nook on our landing, and most recently a small cupboard in an alcove with three floating shelves above. The fact he can do the bulk of the cutting at his workshop and not on-site in our house significantly minimises disruption to us (previous experience with a different carpenter required us to fully clear out a bedroom including bed frames when they build in some alcove shelves and a cupboard). Thanks Andy!"
