Thanks for all the recommendations. I gave Adam at First Man a call, he gave me a very reasonable quote ($140) yesterday and is coming to take out the cabinet next Tuesday.

I’ve had a small job done by Terry West: 0412990209. Good job, reasonable price and timely.

You need a cabinet maker or joiner, not a carpenter. Try looking up a joinery that specialises in custom joinery. You would be very unlikely to get someone else to do the work before Christmas, and if you can I would question the quality of their work.

I can assure you that quality joinery companies are not just sitting there waiting for your call at this time of the year.

I’ll second Sherwood Joinery:
One of his kitchens is 15 years old and still in good condition.
He recently did some cupboards etc in the same place – very nice work.

First Man Trade Services – Speak with Adam.
Fantastic quality, great rates and very efficient.
Ask for examples of workmanship.

Anthony Pierce from Pierce Trade Services 0412 525 567 – no job too big or small. I recommend him to all my clients who need storm or impact damage repaired.

You’d have a better chance of getting Jesus to turn up and do your carpentry work, than you would getting a reasonably-priced and reliable local tradesperson.
