A truly bespoke service

I am an experienced designer, manufacturer and installer of hand made kitchens, bedrooms and other fitted and freestanding furniture. For over 30 years my work has originated solely from private and trade recommendations. I am able to design and produce cabinetry to most styles, taking a commission from initial concept through design to manufacture. You are certain therefore of your project being made to your specific requirements.

A very personal service

As the owner and cabinet maker, your first contact is the person who will design, manufacture and deliver your furniture. I also provide an installation service if that is required. Whether you simply have a concept or a full design, I will personally discuss the project with you, produce AutoCad drawings, and manufacture to your exact requirements.
From first contact to completion, you can be sure of the personal touch.

About me

I have been trading since 1984 as a self employed furniture maker working out of a small workshop in Wiltshire. All the furniture I make is bespoke and made solely to commission. I have never needed to place an advert, and work hard to keep a reputation of being reliable, trustworthy, very fairly priced and of working to a very high standard. If you are thinking of having a new kitchen, updating your bedroom, adding a home office, or any other home improvements, I would help turn your ideas into reality.

I look forward to working with you.

Trade or Private customer

I only buy in raw materials, along with high quality hardware and fittings. I hand-produce, construct and deliver in person. I am experienced and qualified and have over 30 years of varied experience with both trade and private customers. So any aspect of the design can be altered to a specific design detail, size or material.
There are no middle men. I can discuss, design, draw, make deliver and install personally.
I believe only a small tradesman can honestly say they can control their work to such a high degree.
I work closely with both trade and private customers offering everything from a 'trade-supply to order' to a full design service
I advise on design and layout, produce AutoCad plans and elevations, and take the work from concept, through manufacture to completion.
I only commit to 10 to 15 commissions each year, and as my customers' comments reflect, I pride myself on being flexible to your ideas. Each project is made to very specific requirements, with all aspects tailored around your input. You can be confident therefore your furniture will truly reflect your ideas.
So if you have a general idea or a full design, you only need to pay for the parts of my service you require.

I have helped to train my son (Tom) who now works closely along side me. He now runs his own company that fits most of the furniture I make as well as taking on his own contracts.

Testimonials from my previous customers
Many thanks for everything Andy and Tom. We are absolutely thrilled with our kitchen, the workmanship is fantastic and it was great that we could have everything designed to our measurements and requirements.
I would highly recommend APS Woodwork.
Adrian and Trudy ...."Absolutely top quality"
We’ve been using Andy at APS Woodwork for over 10 years.
We have commissioned him for work on both domestic and commercial properties.
He is approachable and still always manages to maintain a smiling face even when we’ve given him huge challenges!
Andy & Julie (Malmesbury) ...."We just hope he doesn’t get too busy to do future projects"
The quality of the kitchen Andy has made is superb and we have been impressed by the attention to detail. Andy provides practical advice and design suggestions that really help to cement your own ideas from his wealth of experience.
Anna kindly wrote ..."the kitchen Andy has made is superb"...
...unbiased advice based on his extensive knowledge and experience, all of which ultimately gave us a superior design.  ...they were perfectionists to the end, working so hard to get it absolutely right not just for us but because they take so much pride in their work.
Kate and Tony (Harpenden) …”a beautiful hand made product ...”
This was a quality bespoke kitchen, beautiful and absolutely functional, with delightful detail and the best craftmanship. It is being very much admired, and I will recommend this firm to all who want a product of this quality.
Phil in Chichester ..." a quality bespoke kitchen"...
Andrew is very approachable and willing to listen to what we wanted and take time to discuss ideas and practicality...and no "make-do" options as offered by many other companies who came out to quote for the job. We couldn't be happier.
Karen & Martin …”We love our new dressing room and study.”...
Excellent quality of work.
Have known the high quality of the craftsmanship of the Smith family since 1975.
Dorothy in Salisbury ..."Excellent and very co-operative."...
We are so delighted that a friend recommended Andy and Tom, they have transformed our kitchen and were full of design ideas at all stages. They are lovely people to deal with.
Nicola in Herts ..."We couldn't be happier"...
My kitchen is absolutely everything I could have hoped for. The quality of the kitchen is exceptional and so much attention to detail was given, that I simply can't fault it. Andy was extremely helpful every step of the way.
Pam in Watford ..."absolutely everything I could have hoped for"...
Your easy going manner was very refreshing , nothing seemed too much trouble. Everything happened as planned, and you finished early, which is extremely rare. We are extremely pleased with the finished product, delivered to an extremely high standard, at a fraction of comparable prices.
Kieth & Jane (Malmesbury) ..."very impressed with your attention to detail"...
We were in need of wardrobe and shelving in our small bedroom. Space and design options open to us seemed limited. Andy made optimum use of the space available. The finished wardrobes and shelving unit are of excellent quality and were fitted very efficiently within a day.
Ann ..."we are delighted with the end result."...
The workmanship is fabulous and extremely good value for money - you can tell that Andy and Tom have a passion for what they do. Thank you so much for the fabulous kitchen, it's my favourite bit of the whole extension.
Lisa ..."Andy and Tom - they are both perfectionists"...
Would I be happy to recommend APS Woodwork?
Definitely, already have done so!
Louise in Herts ..."excellent quality"...
"It's always great to deal with someone who understands your vision of what is wanted and then completes the job with a passion for quality and obvious love for what he is doing. Dealing with Andy Smith is just that"
Rob and Chris in St. Albans ..."a passion for quality"...
good ideas...quick response with good clear plans...worth paying for bespoke... Andy came to design a computer desk. Andy advised what would and wouldn't work, plus gave advice about a pull out printer shelf, filing drawer etc. He was quick to send detailed plans, and it was actually finished and fitted sooner than we had expected.
Rachael in Wiltshire ..."looks fantastic, fits perfectly"...
I had spent hours with bespoke kitchen designers, but none seemed to have the same passion or desire to come up with imaginative ideas to solve problem areas. The attention to detail and the craftsmanship that goes into the furniture is excellent. I can honestly say that there isn't a single thing I would change. I absolutely love my new kitchen and cannot thank Andy enough.
Leonie in Guilford ..."passion or desire"...
... the quality of the craftsmanship & the materials used are excellent. We were impressed with Andy's attention to detail, he wanted everything to be absolutely perfect for us. As it's all bespoke, we could maximise the space and create the exact kitchen we wanted without any compromises.
Sue in Woking ..."he has given us our perfect kitchen"...
"Workmanship is of the highest quality, very helpful and informative. Design plans exactly what we discussed and everything on time. We are so happy with our new kitchen, we want Andy to come back and make us wardrobes in our bedroom.
Michelle and Simon, North Wilts..."Workmanship is of the highest quality"...
We found Andy to be perfect for us. The care to detail was second to none and Andy was always there throughout the work to answer any queries. APS Woodwork is a company that provides a rare exemplary service today!
Work that will last a lifetime .....
Ali from Harpenden ..."rare exemplary service"...
We cannot praise Andy and his son, Tom, enough. Andy sat down with us and talked through our ideas and requirements, offering us appropriate suggestions and advice. Andy was on hand throughout the process and I felt confident with his calm approach and expertise. We were pleasantly surprised at the superb value for money and extremely delighted with the highest of quality workmanship.
Terry & Annette (Sutton Benger, Wilts) ..."the highest of quality workmanship"...
I rememeber coming home on the evening that you had finished fitting the kitchen thinking, yes, we made the right choice. From any vague ideas that we might gave you, you came up with a design that more than met our requirements. When faced with a few obstacles you managed to tweak the design to our needs. However, it wasn't until you came to fit the kitchen that I really appreciated what you and your son, Tom, managed to achieve.
Claire & Gary, (Wilts)"...It all just works so well..."
