"Looks Superb"

“We have just completed a new house through Location Homes. John’s Kitchenmakers installed the kitchen for us. The Woodsmiths benchtop is definitely the most complimented item in our new house.

Thank you so much, I believe that the bench would be a wonderful feature for any new house or kitchen.”

"Absolutely stoked!"

We ordered two kitchen worktops from the Woodsmiths and are absolutely stoked with the outcome.  The worktops are so beautiful and fantastic!  We really appreciate the correspondence and effort that The Woodsmiths went to that ensured our worktops were delivered on time at what must have been a really busy time of year.  The passion and enthusiasm for their work is outstanding.  We are about to embark on a bathroom renovation and are without doubt going to get further Woodsmiths products!
