Our Process

As every item is bespoke, crafted from raw stock wood, ordered specifically for every project, this allows us to ensure the materials are correctly selected for every project. Be it character grade oak for a period property or durable, stable hardwood for painted windows.

At every stage of the process, the utmost care is given to ensure the product is as good as the service you will receive. 

Step 1 - Initial Consultation

Step 1 - Initial Consultation

We will arrange for a valued member of Tucker Joinery to attend an appointment with you to discuss your requirements. We will also take any measurements we require at this time. We will discuss types of timber, if you would like us to price for fitting and if you would like us to price for finishing. We are able to break down quotations to enable you to see exact costs for each section. 

Alternatively we are able to provide a quotation via email, all we require is a drawing or picture of the item you require with the dimensions and we can use this information to price. 

Step 2 - Bespoke Design

Step 2 - Bespoke Design

Once we have all the details from the initial meeting, a member of the team will be able to start producing your quotation. We will break down all costs for you, separating fitting and finish costs so you can clearly see how much each stage is priced. Our quotations will have a small drawing, show all sizes and if necessary glass and furniture types. 

All quotations can be altered and amended at any stage should it be required.

We also provide you with an acceptance of order form. This for needs to be signed and sent back to us as confirmation if you would like us to go ahead with the work. This also shows a breakdown of how much and what stage payment is required, as we only ask for any payment 2 weeks before the work is due to start being manufactured in the workshop, we do not require any payment when an order is placed. 

Step 3 - Expert Construction

Step 3 - Expert Construction

Once the order has been accepted a date for manufacture will be given. A week before starting your timber will be hand selected from our supplier. It will then be passed through our machine shop by our expert machinists. 

Once the machining has been completed and all components have been checked they are assembled by hand using traditional techniques such as mortise and tenoning, held with wedges or dovetailed joints for kitchen drawers.

As all work is carried out in house by our skilled team of craftsmen, we are able to monitor quality of products and ensure our high standard is always met.

Any further finishing is completed in our in-house spraying area. This allows us to offer a full range of finishes from primed to painted in a full range of colours.

Every item is individually checked by Lee before leaving the workshop.

We encourage customers to come into the workshop to see there items being manufactured at any stage of the process.

Step 4 - Precision Fitting

Step 4 - Precision Fitting

We also offer a professional and efficient fitting service. The Tucker team have vans with all materials required to ensure the work is completed on time and to a high standard. Our fitters are also aware that they will leave the site as it was found, and carry hoovers on there vans to help with cleaning at the end of everyday.

Our team of fully experienced fitters have many years of fitting knowledge and understand the high standard that our customers expect. 

Customer Testimonials

Mr Twiss Tuckers were chosen to make all the joinery which included windows, doors, staircase, banisters etc., for our new build house. It has been a real pleasure to deal with them from the day we met them when we went to visit their workshop, right up to their recent visit a year later to re adjust one of our doors. Their friendliness has been matched by the quality of their workmanship and we are proud to be able to say that all our joinery was done by a lovely family firm in Andover called Tuckers.
P Fabricius "I hope the photos you took do justice to the excellent craftsmanship - we will be back for more work in the future and meanwhile i would be very happy to recommend you to anyone needing high quality joinery"
Mr & Mrs Mills "John and I are delighted with the new bedroom window, it matches the old one perfectly but keeps out the draughts! We knew we would get a great bit of work as we had been so thrilled with the front door you made previously. The quality of work, finish, and craftsmanship is only matched by the reliability and friendliness of the team."
P Fabricius "With such a lovely (and listed) house, it was important to us to find someone whose work would not only be excellent quality but also sympathetic tot he house, when we realised that as a youngster you had been to our house helping your father replace all the window frames so had worked there before, that was a real bonus!"
Parsonage Farm "We can thoroughly recommend Tucker Joinery to any business, they are highly professional, efficient and adapt at meeting requirements. The work they have undertaken has been completed to a high standard at a reasonable price." -
Church Council of Shipton Bellinger "Thank you for the wonderful kitchen you have created for the Church and also for making and donating the altar rail. It really makes a difference and everyone very much appreciates it."
Mr & Mrs Annis "Thanks for a fantastic job; we are delighted!!!"
V Lane "Lee and his dad did a fabulous job on our kitchen and we love it"
Stephanie Staton-Young Tucker Joinery made four special windows for our home - two were to hold antique stained glass and the others need to replicate the originals at the front of the house. Lee did an excellent job and the windows are beautiful and a perfect historic match. He and the team also made a new staircase and worked closely with the site manager to get just the right rise and wind to fit a rather complicated space. I do not hesitate to recommend them
Anonymous comment from card given to a customer. Just wanted to say what an improvement your new windows are. UPVC ruin to many historic properties. Well done, you deserve an award
Christine Hooper Regarding the wardrobes, bed and chest of drawers you made for us. We are so pleased with the furniture you have done so far. It is lovely and John has not had to see his physiotherapist for back pain since we have had the new bed! Just as you promised....
Hope you are all well and that business is thriving.


Mrs Francis lee please thank all you staff for the hard work to produce the kitchen me and Mike have been looking for. Mrs Francis Liphook
Michelle - Charlton, Hampshire “I would like to highly recommend Lee Tucker Joinery Ltd, for the service we received from inception to completion of our lovely new front door. Lee visited our home and talked us through the process and gave advice and his recommendation as to the type of door required that fitted with our idea and confirmed time scales and advised we could also visit our door whilst in production. I did indeed visit the door and it was a really interesting to see the workshop and makes you appreciate the time and workmanship that goes into making a bespoke door, I would recommend you go and visit the shop floor and see what other projects that are in production. Lee also took the time to acquire the correct colour for the door to ensure it was the right shade. The door was completed within timescales and a very helpful, caring and professional fitter Matt arrived on installation day and fitted the door with minimal mess and took the time afterwards to ensure we all could gain access using the new keys and adjusted the door accordingly. The whole process was made very easy and I would like to thank you all including the man in the workshop who helped to assemble the door for me to see and Lee, Matt and Emma for keeping me informed and providing a great customer service. Excellent all round service. Thank you very much.”
Mrs Bowden We came across the firm of Tuckers whilst looking for a joiner to to make a bespoke set of Gothic windows inset with antique stained glass. We were expecting a lot of umming and ahing re. this difficult project, but when we discussed it with Mr Tucker, he was enthusiastic and made lots of helpful suggestions.
We were kept informed of the project along the way and visited the workshop to view and discuss the work in progress. Matt who installed the window is an excellent member of the team - he was a clean & tidy worker who took pride in fitting the window - in spite of the wind and rain! We are delighted with the finished product. It far exceded our expectations and came in at a fair price. We cannot praise the workmanship enough and have already and will continue to recommend Tucker Joinery. Thank you.
Mr Finch Many thanks-the french doors look great and are a good match with the barn building.
Please give my thanks to your teams, both in the workshop and on site.
kind regards
Fred
We were looking for a joinery company to make a bespoke gothic window incorporating antique stained glass, and came across Tucker joinery. We were expecting a negative response to our difficult project, but it was met with enthusiasm and helpful suggestions. We were kept informed throughout the process and invited to the workshop to moniter progress. When it was finished, Matt did a brilliant job of installing it (despite torrential rain) and he went beyond the call of duty in fulfilling our requests.
A brilliant job - we are delighted and warmly recommend them.
Mrs Khawaja When I bought my cottage there were two aspects which concerned me; security and because it is a listed building, it had to comply to planning standards for Wiltshire. The door is beautiful, incredibly strong, secure and has blocked out around 90% of the noise from a fairly busy road but it also fits in perfectly with my neighbours’ doors and looks like it has always belonged there. Feel much safer and and am extremely pleased.
