Hi all,
I have been hunting for a good carpenter who can help me make the designs I need. I don't have good time in hand but I want to work with a carpenter and design my cabinets. You can call it semi-DIY :).

I searched every forum but its hard to see even one good reference. So, I wanted to open a thread where people can give references to good carpenters they come accross. This will help people in making an informed decision.

My humble request is, please post the following details if you have a good carpenter.

Name of carpenter:
Contact Number and Address:
City:
Work done:
cost (if possible):
Your review of the person:


Thanks!

I have a carpenter near my home , if you are interested you can come to kolkatta along with the woods you have purchased and sit with him and have the work done.
Just joking , i dont think any carpenters will understand what we are saying to him , they are busy in making doors and windows . i have tried a carpenter when i was planning to make a speaker stand and i could not make him understand untill i showed him a picture of what i was planning to do.

hope you get a good one in your city.

I think its a very good initiative. We wouldnt mind showing them pictures of the work thats needed. But just specify street smart carpenters who once shown visual example can reproduce it.

I got a guy called Babu to make my FRs, gave him the drawings and he was able to take it from there with a little guidance. Paid 3.6K labour(350/day-he was well worth it+250/day for his asst-which was a bit high).Job was well done. Is familiar with speaker enclosures. 9880529987

The earlier wod working outfit I used would probably have cost me a bit more.

Hi SG, is this guy good at veneering? Have you had anything done through him personally? Thanks for your inputs!

I had good output from one of the local carpenters in Hyd (across the last 2 years where I spent 1lakh+ on cupboards and a wall unit). If you need contact details, PM me.

It would be beneficial to all if you post the details here.
And it would also show up if someone does a forum
search many moons down the line.

Quad, somehow I am not comfortable in publishing a mobile # on a public forum. Anyways, I hope to be on this forum for many moons down the line.

Hi All,
Does anyone in Chennai know of a good (and reliable) carpenter who would be willing to work on a speaker project? I'm also looking at good quality veneering for the cabs. I'd appreciate all your assistance. Thanks.
