How we do it

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.
