We would like to say how pleased we are with both the service and the quality of our new bespoke kitchen built and installed by Jim Sharples and his team. We had looked at the kitchens available at a number of the specialist bespoke kitchen showrooms in Clifton but we feel that in using Jim Sharples we have a kitchen which equals or surpasses those that we viewed and at a significant cost saving! Jim came up with some excellent suggestions in terms of design and ideas for finishing touches.
Every time we walk in the kitchen it puts a smile on our faces, thanks Jim

I am thoroughly enjoying my beautiful solid oak kitchen. It is a lovely space in which to work and the the layout and the storage possibilities are practical and make for pleasing effciency!
It has been widely admired by all my friends who recognise the extremely high quality of the workmanship and imaginative use of the dark and light oak. Thank you so much again for all the work and thought that went into making the whole project such a success.

Thank you Jim For my lovely new wardrobe. It suits the room perfectly. I would also like to thank you for your perfect customer service. The fact that you did everything when you said you would without messing me about was an absolute bonus. I have no hesitation in recommending.

Wow, what can I say…. We are simply overjoyed with how the pieces of furniture have turned out for us. You listened so carefully to our thoughts and wishes and created what I call ‘works of art’. The sloping drainer on the kitchen work surface not only works brilliantly but is visually so much better than the grooved drainer we had before…. Sharp and sexy and the grooves won’t get all mucky.
Our brief to you when designing and building the dressing table, draw unit and shoe cupboard was to give us the ‘wow factor’, you have given us this and more!

We are absolutely delighted with them and they are exactly right for the room. Having looked around quite extensively in the usual kinds of shops and found nothing suitable, your design and detail with perfect finish are even better than we'd imagined! And I particularly like the way you know exactly where the cherry and walnut trees came from for the understated but vital detailing. Thank you very much for your care and originality.

Having seen what a great job you have done on this unit, could we also now go ahead with the oak one you proposed for the dining room please?

We have just seen the pictures and we love the window seats! They look great. Thank you! The girls are very pleased.

Thank you so much for making the oak dining table for us, we're absolutely delighted with it.

It's heartening to know there are artisans like yourself creating beautiful bespoke pieces at an extremely reasonable price.

I was convinced the remnant piece of kitchen worktop to end up as cheese boards so I'm over the moon that you've been able to transform it into something practical and unique. My daughter has something to practise her colouring in on now (literally!) and the woods been saved from a cheese fate.

If there is a wood equivalent of alchemy then I'm pretty sure you've achieved it.

We have had lots of positive feedback about the bench. It really is lovely and much nicer than I had anticipated.

I hope there is the opportunity for you to do more work at the Lake .

All of the furniture is still in tip-top condition; that's really impressive considering it's two years old in a high-volume, busy restaurant - clearly built to last! In fact, pretty much everything else in our site has needed replacing or repairing, given the volume we do, but the furniture you provided is still in great condition, so you're clearly doing something right!

Thank you for completing the work in our kitchen and for creating the lovely under-the-stairs cupboard. It is a great piece of furniture and is just as expected, which is a great compliment to your understanding our requirements. Thank you for being able to arrange the joinery for us as well. We will gladly recommend you and your work in the future.

Jim took my idea and improved upon it. The whole process made purchasing a piece of furniture a more interesting process.

Dear Jim,
This is just to say how pleased I am with your kitchen!! The local English Ash wood is wonderful. Your interpretation of our wishes and design is exactly how we wanted it. Your craftsmanship is unique and we can recommend anyone who would like a bespoke kitchen, to have a 'Jim Sharples' one!!
Mieke and Dugald Day, 2010

We absolutely love it! Your interpretation of the brief and delicate approach has made what could have been simply a utilitarian piece a real statement. The iMac looks very at home in the corner too. Thank you so much. You'll definitely be hearing from us again.

A simple set of book shelves designed and made beautifully. We are delighted by the attention to detail Jim puts into the pieces we have purchased from him. The quality and finish of Jims work is brilliant. We recommend him as a great local designer maker.

Having been let down badly by builders,I was reluctant to trust anyone to finish off the work. Rather than tutting and telling me the problems, Jim talked about solutions. Professional, competitive & efficient. He is as good as his word. Jim has a really good eye for detail so does a great job and the work is beautiful. Thrilled with the cupboards, skirting, kitchen, shelving, architrave. Def recommended!

We were looking for an individual, bespoke piece of furniture and were impressed by items of Jim's work displayed on his website. We contacted him and discussed our requirements with him and, satisfied that he could meet our requirements, we asked him to build us a piece of furniture. Throughout the construction process, Jim kept us fully updated on progress. On completion, Jim personally delivered the furniture and undertook the final construction on site. Inspecting Jim's work at this stage it was obvious it was all we had hoped; it is a beautiful piece of furniture and Jim's standard of work is exceptionally high; the wood selection was especially well considered.

Considering the difficulties of purchasing any handcrafted work via photographs on a web-page and by telephone and e-mail correspondence, Jim did us proud. I would have no hesitation, whatsoever, in recommending Jim to any potential customer.

Jim has been a huge help in making my house a home. Currently he has done work in my kitchen, bathroom, dining room, living room and study, and I imagine he will help me further as the other rooms are renovated. Jim is a pleasure to have around, and his levels of workmanship simply speak for themselves.
