With a background as a qualified cabinet maker and with years spent in general carpentry, we are able to offer full first and second fix carpentry. First fix carpentry includes roofing, structural walls, windows, studwork, exterior doors, internal door linings and floors; second fix includes internal doors, skirting boards, kitchen fitting, architrave, built in wardrobes and custom cupboards, stairs, boxing for bathrooms and laying wooden flooring. We also offer external work including decking, balconies, soffits and fascia work.
I am a qualified cabinet maker and have 25 years experience in generalist carpentry from swinging doors to full first and second fix carpentry. I take a huge amount of pride in my work, ensuring that my work is to the highest standard.
I grew up in Butcombe in the Chew Valley, and qualified as a cabinet maker while working at Oxleaze Workshop Cabinet Makers and then spent 5 years at R.O Dando & Sons as a general carpenter swinging doors, fitting architrave and skirting board, building custom wardrobes, fitting kitchens, flooring, roofing and much more. For the last 10 years I have run a successful first and second fix carpentry business in central Bristol working on commercial and residential new builds and renovations.
In 2023, I moved back to the Chew Valley and am now living in Blagdon with my family.
We had unsightly gas and electric meters by our front door in a narrow Victorian hallway so they were very noticeable. Matt built a brilliant cabinet to disguise them. It was perfect - getting rid of the meters but still making them easily accessible with lovely push close doors to finish. Matt was very professional and had great communication. Would 100% recommend.
Matt did the skirting, architraves and hung all of the doors whilst we were renovating our house. We couldn't have been happier with the work. Super friendly and professional service! Would definitely recommend

Thanks to Chew Valley Carpentry for your Great Job (👏) replacing the fascia’s and barge boards to our dormers and porch.
Matt’s carpentry is top quality. We also found him conscientious, professional, with a keen eye for detail. A clean and tidy worker with a sincere customer attitude, he kept us fully informed through the work. A rare set of qualities. We’ll gladly recommend his work, and he will be our first choice for any future work of this nature going forward.
Matt has worked on multiple projects with me and is competent in all aspects of carpentry. His knowledge is excellent meaning he can problem solve and provide solutions. His work is of a high standard. I would thoroughly recommend Matt and will be calling on his service on my next project.
