About wood doctor

Hi, my name is John Benham and I work under the wood doctor.
I have been a fully qualified carpenter for exactly 29years.
I served my apprenticeship at the unicorn gate college at Portsmouth dockyard. Carpentry runs in the family as my father & grandfather were carpenters. I am an old school type of carpenter, extremely reliable & punctual.i am very experienced in all problem solving involving carpentry.
I am more about word by mouth than glossy websites !. Look forward to meeting new customers & old.
Kind regards john.

John proved to be an excellent tradesman who carried out the whole project to a high standard. He chose a method of operation which caused us the least possible amount of inconvenience, cleaned up and left the job tidy each evening. He started at the agreed time each day and did not take time away to be working on other projects. As a result he completed the job in an exemplary fashion comfortably ahead of the predicted time. I will certainly employ him again should the need arise.
