our point of view discussing a design and commissioning work
from Nick is very simple. We would have no hesitation in recommending
Early Oak Specialists to anyone else".

the entertainment centre yesterday. I absolutely love it. The
size is perfect. Thanks Nicholas and I'll be in touch about
the bed soon. Great work!
A, Michigan USA
delighted with the bed, it's a real work of art and it was much
admired by our guests over Christmas. They were absolutely staggered
to hear that it had just been made - your work and craftsmanship
exceeds anything I have ever seen by a long long way. I have
no doubt that we'll be getting in the queue again for another
piece very soon".
Mr R M (an avid collector of original early oak furniture),
are really pleased with the settle and benches - thanks so much
for your hard work on them"
National Trust, Osterley Park
am writing to thank you for the wonderful table and its accompanying
set of chairs.......Even if we had the skills to make the table
ourselves, I doubt if the end result would have matched our
expectations as closely as you have managed to. The pleasure
in owning such a beautiful piece of furniture is enhanced by
knowing that it was made by someone who really cared about the
product throughout its manufacture and always seemed more interested
in getting the right result than in counting the hours spent."
Mr B, Cheshire
cupboard is exquisite"
"My mother, who has impossibly high standards and is
very hard to please, saw the cupboard for the first time last
weekend. She was effusive in her praise"
Mr N, Gloucestershire
so pleased with the table! .......it's had universal praise
and acclaim from all who have seen it. Apart from the fact that
it is exactly as I wished, it carries all the hallmarks of having
been made by real craftsmen, primarily yourself but also the
various members of your team. If one calls it a 'replica' that
potentially blurs the fact that in its own right it is the product
of wonderful handcrafted furniture skills - not to mention the
superb ironwork hinges and drawer handles. I also commend you
for the easy and enjoyable process of commissioning it. It was
clear from our first meeting that you loved early oak furniture
and would spare no effort, time and research to make a piece
that was as authentic and well crafted as possible. That enthusiasm,
coupled with your own skills, means we have a beautiful table."
Mrs B, West Sussex
produces the most convincing replicas I have ever seen. Period.
Being professionally immersed in the fine antique and aged fine
furnishings industry for decades, I thought I had seen the best
of the best, but Nick's talents changed all that. He is simply
far above the best, without equal in his dedication to authenticity,
purity and beauty"

Nick,Hope you are well. I wanted to order two of the benches
we recently collected, however this time without backs or arms"
National Trust, Osterley Park
logged onto your website - our staircase looks wonderful; you
took some very good photographs And although it feels as if
it has been there forever, we enjoy its looks and use every
day - and continue to be exited about the quality of design
and workmanship. Thank you so much!"
& A VDV, Hampshire
crafted some absolutely stunning additions and replacements
to a 17th century Sussex farmhouse. The workmanship was of the
highest possible standard and the authenticity of the features
he introduced was amazing. His ability to "age" the
oak and the ironwork is exceptional and it takes a very keen
eye to realise they haven't been there for over three centuries!
I recommend Nick highly".
Mr & Mrs M, Sussex
and radiator cover were designed in both a practical way and
also to blend in well with the character of our very old house.
They were also very well constructed and finished"
Mr & Mrs H, Sussex
have uniquely achieved through dedication, research and skills
a range of early oak furniture that has the ability to evoke
both the love of period oak by a connoisseur and challenge the
specialist to differentiate between original!"
Mr K, Derbyshire
quality of workmanship that transformed a neglected solid oak
staircase to it's former glory and recreated a unique centre
piece for the property which will last for many years to come"
Mr K, West Sussex.
wanted to say how pleased we are with the work on the panels
that you organised for us, they have been Limed and the client
is extremely pleased with them........"
R (bespoke kitchen company), Hampshire
very much Nick. We are really pleased with the floors. They

well worth the wait"
