C S Joinery was set up by me, Colin Smith, in 2005. When I left school I immediately began my joinery apprenticeship, working in a workshop fully equipped with largely Wadkin machinery. I gained experience in the manufacture of many products including windows, doors, conservatories, stairs, gates and large section timber framing. During my apprenticeship I also attended Dumfries Technical College, gaining qualifications which are the modern equivalent to the ‘City and Guilds’ certificate; I completed my education with a final year in order to gain an advanced certificate in carpentry and joinery.

Since setting up C S Joinery, I find that my workload is largely split between the supply and installation of bespoke engineered hardwood flooring and the manufacture of wooden gates, doors and timber buildings.


“Colin was very professional from the first visit when he estimated the job to the last minute of leaving, when the job was completed. His estimate and final price were the same and the standard of his craftsmanship was excellent.He also had an excellent relationship with our wood flooring supplier (Euroak) which always helps. Colin is one of these craftsman that does what he says he is going to do”
