Wood & Wisdom offers a complete joinery service including full installation as part of the process for our joinery projects.

A brief is typically received from the designer or architect, often early in the project, which usually takes the form of reasonably detailed drawings or sketch proposals. At this stage we often give advice on timber selection and finishes, if required we provide full size samples to enable materials and finishes to be agreed.

Following this we prepare a detailed quote for the work. On acceptance of our quote, receipt of deposit and signed order we then visit the site to take dimensions and prepare detailed drawings for the designer’s approval.

Manufacture and finishing progresses in our Sussex workshop and during this stage we encourage designer and client visits to view our work.

On completion we transport finished work directly to site where we either advise on, supervise or carry out joinery installation depending upon which service best suits the project team and client.

  • We chose Wood & Wisdom to work with us on a recent refurbishment project and asked them to create two 2 separate sets of automated gates which are operated by sensor.

    Each gate is 16 x 8ft, which presented a challenge.  But the team expertly adjusted the brick piers to ensure brackets could be fitted, before custom making bespoke wrought iron hinges capable of withstanding the weight of the gates at the Wood & Wisdom foundry.  A smooth project, with excellent service from the team.

  • I was very impressed with the Wood & Wisdom service. They handmade a set of bespoke oak gates for my property, finished with black wrought iron furniture crafted in their foundry.  The design is in keeping with the period, and the automated technology adds privacy and security for my home.

  • Our home dates back to 1900, and it’s important to us that the original Edwardian character of the property is maintained. We chose Wood & Wisdom to work with us on a recent refurbishment project; our home’s rear windows overlooking the South Downs, new windows for a garage complex and bespoke commission of a sunburst semi-circular window inspired by Edwardian design.  Throughout the project the team demonstrated expertise and craftsmanship that was second to none.  We could not be happier.

  • Wood & Wisdom helped to redesign the staircase for our traditional stone farmhouse.  They suggested ways of creating more light in the hallways whilst future proofing the design should we ever want to extend the house.  The beautiful continuous handrail makes a stunning feature in the centre of our home – thank you.

  • I commissioned Wood & Wisdom to create a kitchen in my family home.  However, it also serves as the kitchen for my home bakery business so I needed an exacting design.  The team did a marvellous job and answered the brief perfectly.  Incorporating many custom details including bespoke handles, cupboards and drawers for a safer working environment. Their choice of materials and overall attention to detail, such as tailored larder cabinets and a practical central island has created a stunning space that we continue to enjoy on a daily basis.

  • We wanted to install a painted wooden staircase into our home that was in keeping with the style of the property.  The natural oak staircase Wood & Wisdom manufactured and installed is perfect, and reflects the natural wood finishes we have throughout the rest of the house. The whole process was incredibly simple and straightforward, and only took a couple of days.

  • My 4-story modern seafront home has an entire façade made of glass and timber.  It’s incredibly exposed to the elements and sits within a conservation area.  Wood & Wisdom’s brief was to design and install bespoke windows that were not only in keeping, but also incredibly hard wearing. They recommended Accoya frames finished in a bespoke colour, with stainless steel fixtures and fittings suited to the exposed elevation. The team was amazing throughout the project, skillfully managing the challenges presented by 4 floors and large panes of glass without any problem at all.

  • We decided to completely refurbish our traditional Sussex farmhouse and replace all the windows and doors with hard wood traditional style double-glazing.  We are extremely happy with the quality and design and would not hesitate to recommend Wood and Wisdom

  • The team at Wood & Wisdom designed and installed all the windows and doors for the rear of our detached Victorian property.  This included a bespoke 10x5ft roof lantern & custom built Victorian sash windows, which replicate exactly the existing original windows.  We also commissioned them to build and install a large set of bi folding doors which open into our garden and flood the new family room with light.   Excellent expert service, and I’d highly recommend.

  • I commissioned Wood & Wisdom to create a totally bespoke, statement staircase for my new family home.  The design they proposed was a continuous string staircase, handcrafted in walnut and travelling up flawlessly over 3 floors.  It’s stunning, a total master-piece and works in perfect harmony with the porcelain tiles, double oak doors and galleried landing.

  • My house sits high above the street in a very prominent location in Hove. I felt it deserved a statement front door and asked Wood & Wisdom to help me. The service I received was wonderful. From touring Brighton and Hove with me to gather inspiration, to noting down the favourite design features and styles I’ve gathered on my travels.

    I commissioned them to make a bespoke Accoya front door, painted in an eye catching green/grey and finished with ornate, contemporary polished chrome fixtures. Exceptional service from beginning to end.

  • Attached to our house is an orangery which we love to use during the warmer months, however during the winter we’d like the option to close it off.  In what was previously an open space between the orangery and the house, Wood & Wisdom  suggested we install custom wooden internal doors, flexible enough to allow us to open the entire space during the summer, and part close, or fully close off during the winter.  Really professional.  The team even matched the satin nickel handles to match the fixtures we have throughout the rest of the house.
