Traditional standards. Traditional tradesman. Traditional service.
Thank you for visiting my website. I have been in the trade for over 40 years; my 5 year apprenticeship as a boat builder was followed by a further 2 years as a wood machinist, then a spell repairing furniture and manufacturing reproduction antique clocks followed. I then spent a further 15 years working in a therapeutic environment passing on my skills, before setting myself up as a self-employed carpenter/joiner.
As you will appreciate, I undertake a wide range of projects, so scrolling through the site map may well direct you to past work that may be similar to your requirements.
The preferred way to contact me is by using the contact page on this site. However you can always ring me during normal working hours. Lead times vary depending on the time of year; small jobs I can often do promptly.
I cover Southampton, Winchester, New Forest and Waterside.

Mr Colin Sebright, Southampton 13/01/2016
I read the reviews and thought “this guy is good” how true the review were. Quality workmanship, timely, realistic quote and stuck to it & finally he left the work area clean. Removed and replaced 4 non standard internal doors, the frames could not be removed because that probably would have meant that I would have needed to replace the walls a well. solid doors fitted and either trimmed back or built up to fit these odd sizes and angles. Had the patience of a saint to tackle this workskatelandmanager 20/12/2015
