Here are some reviews written for me by customers over the last little while.

Bedside Shelves from Offcuts

I have never written a spontaneous testimonial for any person or service before this one. We met Alex when he was installing a fitted wardrobe for a UK company, and knew from his care, skill and application, that he is an exceptional carpenter.

Since then, we have been fortunate that he has been free to make and fit a small addition to the wardrobe…using offcuts…..and to replace some pine floorboards. We live in an old house with no straight walls, and with pipes and cables badly installed by previous tradespeople. Alex cracked every challenge as it arose, even invisibly plugging the countersunk floorboard screws after partly rebuilding joists and avoiding the pipes and cables. 

I cannot recommend him highly enough and will be pleased to give him a more precise reference if you would like one. DB Somerset 07976963507.

Alex provides a very cool bespoke service which has seen him create several work storage solutions for me. His ideas are cool and very creative to work with different shape spaces and solutions. He’s meticulous with detail and sat with me to create the designs on his computer before hand so I had a clear idea of the finished product. He provided a me a timeline with sensible options so as not to inconvenience my world whilst it was being done and was always considerate to my home, leaving the work area tidy at the end of every day. Quality is what Alex does and his costs are surprisingly reasonable. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Alex stands out as a carpenter not only for his innovative joinery and design skills but also because his entire approach is centred around making a positive difference to his customers’ lives. He’s also a lovely bloke you can completely trust. We’ve used him many times over the years and will continue to do so!

During the redevelopment of our house my wife and I needed a good carpenter
If there was a Yellow Pages listing reliable and trustworthy craftsmen we never found it and those collected along the way made a mess of all but the easiest of tasks.
Then in early 2022 a friend gave us contact info’ for Alex Hykel and although he was busy when we briefly met, he reallocated his work schedule to fit us in for a couple of days for a mutual trial which became the best decision we ever made!
Instead of a bag of tools he arrived each day with a complete mobile workshop and large vacuum dust extractor together with all types of equipment to manufacture the list of jobs he was producing.
Although interested in his progress, constant supervision was unnecessary. On the second day of the job we gave him a set of keys and were delighted by his constant reliability and quality of workmanship, because Alex is not merely a carpenter but a widely qualified craftsman with experience of all manner of tasks.
In September 2022 our property at 156 Coldharbour Road Bristol BS67SP was sold for well over its asking price based on the high quality of its rebuild largely thanks to Alex (who also designed and manufactured the front fence and gate).
