Company info

WOODWORK BY DAVID J LAW undertakes the manufacture and installation of bespoke woodwork projects only, as depicted in my photo albums. Please note: All of my work is tailor made to individual client requirements, therefore I do not supply and fit pre-made, off-the-shelf or self-assembly products. This includes carrying out menial jobs such as door hanging, fitting skirting, boxing pipes, repairing floorboards etc.                                          

Established in 1975, I am apprenticeship served, City and Guilds qualified and have a wealth of experience gained from 45 years of working in the various sectors of woodworking. Unlike many others in the woodworking trades nowadays who simply carry out the supply and fitting of basic ready made products such as kitchens, doors, skirting and architraves etc, I actually make everything myself with the exception of wood turnings and the occasional decorative moulding, therefore it is only pictures of my own work displayed on my website and advertising platforms. These projects are manufactured in my fully equipped Dudley based Joinery before delivery and installation on site, working on a nationwide basis.

WOODWORK BY DAVID J. LAW carries out bespoke woodwork in the fields of: Joinery, Shopfitting, Exhibition, Kitchens, Bedrooms, Bathrooms, Studies and Furniture.  Over the years I have undertaken projects in most English counties, Wales, France and Spain. These projects have included churches, listed buildings, museums, libraries, office suites, factories, high street shops, department stores, retail parks, sports stadiums, exhibition venues, foreign embassies, schools/colleges, social/night clubs, restaurants/bistros and public houses, as well as numerous family homes. And amongst my clientele have been well known personalities from the world of music, television, film and sport, plus aristocracy, foreign royals, politicians and diplomats. I am also a registered supplier to The Black Country Living Museum, Dudley, for whom I undertake reproduction, renovation and restoration projects.

I have reasonably good regional knowledge from working throughout the UK mainland and from having had previous workshops based in London x 2 (Acton 1980-89 and Chiswick 1994-02), Sheffield (Penistone 2002-11) and Wolverhampton (Tettenhall 2013-14), following through to my current workshop based in Dudley, West Midlands. Dudley is perfectly positioned in a geographically central location enabling me to access and serve my clients old and new throughout the UK mainland. This is made much easier by the proximity of the nearby M5 and M6 motorways and their links to adjoining motorways and major road networks. As a well-travelled Londoner, I also undertake projects in the capital, therefore I continue to advertise and maintain a landline telephone there which is diverted directly to me. My travels have also introduced me to many suppliers and useful local tradesmen throughout the UK. 

I am always happy to give advice and offer a warm friendly service enhanced by my unblemished reputation for quality, reliability, trust and value. Not only am I a member of The Guild of Master Craftsmen but also The Woodland Trust, this is to help fund the sustainability and management of our woodlands and take some responsibility for the impact my trade has on the environment. I offer free no obligation visits to meet potential clients to discuss and measure their requirements, but if preferred this can be done via email if enough information is provided. I also welcome workshop visits but by appointment only as opening hours are subject to change during installations.
