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.

Carpenter / Joiner

Highly recommend. Needed a bannister added onto some stairs. Really happy with the quote, he was able to do the job the following week which was what we needed. Arrived promptly did exactly what we asked to a high standard. Made no mess and left the place near and tidy.

Having John over to install a banister for us was quite a privilege. He has done a very committed, quick and thorough job. In addition to quality of his work, he is quite a sociable person as well.

I would highly recommend John to anyone. Clean, tidy, efficient, a good price and a nice guy. I am very picky as to who I’ll have working in my home but John was great all round. I will certainly be getting him back for any further carpentry jobs!
