Wonderful job on producing our HI FI Cabinet

Dear Phil

Thank you for the wonderful job you did on producing our Hi Fi cabinet. I came across Phil Collins Fine Furniture quite by accident as I drove past his van and premises. My wife had recently bought a Hi fi system which had a record deck as we still have LPs. She wanted a decent cabinet to house the modules, records, tapes, Cds, etc. I explained to Phil in broad terms of what we were after and he said he could do it. I roughed out a crude drawing with my sizes and gave it to Phil. He came back to our house and measured the space where we wanted the cabinet to fit. Shortly after this he came back with a drawing with accurate dimensions and advice about doors, drawers etc. He explained about allowing for thickness of shelves and height off the floor. Phil then produced this fabulous cabinet to house our Hi Fi system, etc. When he brought the unit to us he came and adjusted the doors and attached the handles. As you can see the unit is made out of oak with glass fronted doors with two drawers on the bottom and shelf space on the side for records. We are really pleased with the way it turned out. When Phil says he is going to do something he does it.

Beautiful Bookcases

Dear Phil

I just wanted to say thank you again for my beautiful bookcases.

All my friends really appreciate the craftsmanship that has gone into them, you can really see the quality and the attention to detail.

What I appreciate, above all, was the time you took to make sure that they were exactly what I wanted – measuring and re-measuring the spaces in between the shelves to make sure I could fit all my different sized books in them.

Thank you very much!.

Display unit for alcove

Dear Phil

We had on odd shaped alcove in our lounge and were unable to find a display unit to fit. After contacting Phil he visited our home and listened to our requirements and swiftly provided us with a suitable design. We were then able, with Phil’s guidance, to select a suitable type of wood and establish the finer requirements for this piece. During the ‘build’ we were kept fully informed of progress and likely delivery date which suited us perfectly. The display unit was installed and visitors to our home have passed comment on the design and uniqueness of the piece and the high level of workmanship and construction.

All in all we are extremely pleased with our unit and would have no hesitation in recommending Phil to our friends or acquaintances for bespoke items of furniture. Suffice to say we have since used Phil to design and build another piece of furniture for our home and are delighted with the result. He has always displayed a high level of professionalism which is extremely hard to find these days.

Fast, efficient and friendly service at all times

Just wanted to drop you a line to thank you very much for the beautiful furniture you recently made for our living room.

We have had so many comments asking where we bought the TV unit and are expecting similar plaudits for the matching bookcase.

I’m sure we will be in touch again.

Fast, efficient and friendly service at all times.

To say that I am delighted is an understatement

Dear Mr Collins

I write regarding the Solid Mahogany CD Cabinet which you designed and made for me, which I received yesterday. To say that I am delighted is an understatement. It is quite superb with regard to appearance, finish and general workmanship. It fits exactly and neatly into the recess in the room alongside the other mahogany pieces we have including a boudoir grand piano.

It has been a singular pleasure dealing with you throughout the design and manufacture of the piece. I believe you are rightly proud of the work you produce and the piece is of the highest quality. Many thanks for your kindness and courtesy during the making of the cabinet

Console Table

Dear Phil,

I just wanted to say many thanks for making my console table so quickly. All my visitors have said how lovely the table looks and it is so much better now when I use the computer.

I just want a bit more time to get used to the new “layout” before deciding on the nest of tables and/or a coffee table.

I will contact you soon. Best Wishes.

Specialist piece of “equipment”

Hi Phil,

We have now settled in our new home, and have road tested the workstation you produced for Mrs Thomas for the past three months. From a germ of an idea from us you went ahead and produced not only a useful addition to our home, but a first class piece of pure craftsmanship.

A specialist piece of “equipment” designed by you for the benefit of a housewife confined to a wheelchair.

You left no stone unturned in your effort to ensure it was 100% successful. Your attention to detail has shown top class results. What do we use it for? Two persons dining table, food preparation, moving items around the home, talking point for neighbours and it is in use every day without fail.

Phil, our thanks for all the effort and the end results of your labours.

TV/Media cabinet

I just wanted to write to say thank you very much for our TV/Media cabinet that you designed and made for us. We looked around for a long time at media units and the quality was very poor that’s when we decided to ask for your services. We love the unit in the contrasting woods of American Black walnut and English Oak it really suits the room and design of the unit.

All of the compartments fit all of the gadgets we have and the drawers keep all of the dvd’s and cd’s tidy. You were meticulous in the design of the unit which is apparent to see in the lovely cabinet you crafted for us.

Many thanks and we will be using you again when we need our next piece of furniture.


Very approachable and friendly

Phil has made two pieces of furniture for us over the last two years, both to our own designs, a plate rack which we had searched the shops for and could not find, and a media unit.

On both occasions he has been meticulous in his attention to detail, and has kept us fully informed, even going to his workshop to make sure it was exactly how we wanted the furniture to look.

We have been thrilled, the finished article has been more than we could have wished for, the finish has been beautiful and our friends have admired it. He truly is a real craftsman.

If we should need any more furniture to be made we would not hesitate to ask him, he has always been very approachable and friendly, to the degree that he now seems like one of the family.

Dental cabintery

We have recently used Phil Collins Fine Furniture to replace worn out Dental Cabinetry. The surgery doors were all custom made and fitted to a high standard.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Phil.

Your meticulous attention to detail

Dear Phil,

I am absolutely delighted with the Media Unit that you have made and fitted for me.  I knew what I wanted and how I wanted it to look, but you made it happen.   You listened carefully to my ideas, took accurate measurements and produced a comprehensive design plan which met the brief exactly.  I was so impressed with your meticulous attention to detail, expert craftsmanship, the pride taken in your work, your patience and understanding in coping with other tradesmen working on site.  You kept me informed at every stage of the process – even coming back out to check after the re-plastering was complete that all the measurements for the alcove were still precise!   They were, you were, and the result is unique, beautiful as well as completely functional.  Your suggestion for soft close fixings made everything work simply and cleanly.  Thank you so much for all the care, time and pure skill you gave to this lovely unit.  I wouldn’t hesitate to use your services again, or to recommend you to anyone who seeks a high standard of quality and perfectionist attention.

Thank you so much!


Highest standard and design

The time between contact and completion was amazingly quick and the display cabinet and jewelry boxes that you designed and made for me are of the highest standard.

We would certainly recommend your work to others.
