Custom Made Furniture

40 years of quality, service & dependability


Every single piece of handmade custom furniture from Shellards begins with the selection of the perfect piece of wood. Each piece is chosen for color and grain and where precisely it will be used in the construct. To build our bespoke furniture, we use traditional handmade furniture joinery methods – executed with precision, modern machines, used by our experienced team highly skilled craftsmen. We pay special attention to an range of functional & practical details,  to make each project a quality, bespoke finished piece.

Shellards custom furniture is the result of the skills & dedication of the people who create it. Unlike other furniture producers, each piece of our furniture is built by a team of craftsmen who build the piece start to finish. The pride that our team takes in their craft is reflected in the beauty & superiority of the handmade furniture they produce.

Our custom furniture designs are both timeless & contemporary and you can order a wide range of styles & materials to suit your home of business.


We ensure safe height of and distance between units and appliances, plus suitable flooring and wall coverings to minimise flame damage and spillages.

We implement safe shelf heights, storage needs to minimise climbing on chairs and accessible lighting/remote controls to lessen stumbling in the dark.

Water means slippage so surfaces have to be carefully specified and with all things in easy reach and automation of lighting.


Whether we produce quality units to a budget, or even refurbished cupboard doors and ironmongery to facelift an existing custom made furniture, with appliances upgrade, re-wiring and improved plumbing, OR a wholesale new custom made furniture, we work out a fixed price to suit a budget (changing specifications until a budget is signed off) and we then honour that fixed price.

Quality Assurance

We use the very best, affordable quality as it minimises maintenance and lessens wear and tear. This also looks better for longer and adds to either re-sale value and/or rental stability – in essence more cost-effective in the medium term and beyond.


We can design your products with special needs access or use in mind and offer solutions to all of your storage requirements.

Design of walking routes around custom made furniture and between these and wash facilities are also paramount when it comes ensuring complete satisfaction for our customers.


Our products are environmentally friendly timber and laminates and low energy/water use appliances – with recycling of waste water and heat recovery.

We also cover low energy lighting, allergy controls/ventilation and noise control (insulation) and thermal controls for summer sleeping.

Water recycling and low energy lighting are also all of paramount importance to Shellards Joinery.


We offer practical designs to suit occupancy and the number of users e.g. elderly needs are different, such as taking into account; heights and distances, visibility and reach, plus good gripping. Younger usage require easy clean and more workspace. We have it all covered at Shellards.

A large choice of finishes are available, such as carpets to lessen occurrence of carpet moths and other increasingly common pests. Plus ease of cleaning.
