Woodworking Firm Marks 30 Years with New Shufflebottom

John Kirby and colleagues from Dovetail Workers in Wood have painstakingly constructed a Shufflebottom kit building as their new workshop and design studio.


They are so pleased with the result that they made a video for their customers, thanking them for supporting the business and creating the demand which enabled the construction to go ahead.


Dovetail Workers in Wood, based in Buriton, Petersfield, Hampshire, makes bespoke kitchens and fitted furniture for customers mainly in southern England.


The steel-framed building, 20.675 metres by 12.95 metres and with a mezzanine floor, replaces an old timber workshop, and marks the start of a new era with higher capacity for the 30-year-old business.


"Working with Shufflebottom was a very positive experience," said Mr Kirby, the owner manager of Dovetail. "I had a rough idea of what I wanted, but they came up with a better idea that saved my company a load of time and money. Nothing was too much trouble, and I can wholeheartedly recommend them."
