Shellards Joinery Workshop

WB01Our Joinery workshop is based within our factory in Frome, Somerset. It supplies and designs joinery items to the public and trade, for both local and wider markets.

Our workshop was visited by Kevin McCloud of Grand Designs as regards the renovation of The Apprentice Store in Bath.

For this project, we supplied joinery items including the large structural beams and all the external doors and windows. Of particular note, is the approval by Bath Council for the use of Slimlite Double Glazing in a listed building. This innovative technology is described by Kevin McCloud as “a panel so brilliantly made that it turns a cold, inefficient period window into one that is condensation-free and that meets current building regulations …”

We pride ourselves on the quality and range of our purpose-made joinery items, which include:

✔  Kitchen and Bathroom cabinets

✔  Traditional and modern staircases

✔  Eco Buildings

✔  Internal doors and panelling

✔  Skirting and Architraves (including matching to existing profiles)

✔  Bookcases, other purpose made cabinets and shelving

✔  Paint shop – for spraying or decorating Trade or Private Client materials, components or furniture items (including a collection and return service if wanted)

✔  External doors and windows (including front doors, bi-fold, sliding/folding, stable doors, substantially glazed and other specialist doors; traditional casement and sashes, storm proof sashes, vertical sliding sashes, pivots and other specialist styles)

✔  Timber conservatories and roof lights

✔  Structural timbers and beams

✔  Green Oak frames for extensions

✔  Entrance gates and External furniture


We actively promote and encourage the use of renewable timbers and, wherever possible, use FSC timber and products from sustainable sources. We offer advice and guidance on the most suitable material for your project and budget – from joinery grade softwood, Douglas Fir, or MDF to hardwoods including Oak, Ash, Maple, Idigbo, Sapele, Iroko, Walnut and many others.

We supply and can design (CAD) purpose made joinery items to building contractors as well as for our own specialist installations team.

Clients include private individuals, companies, interior designers, architects and large and small building companies.

All softwood is fully treated and primed or stained as requested and we are able to arrange painting before delivery, if required.
