In that case you need a company with their own carpentry workshop and who do large runs of 'one-off' production. Such a company can buy the timber required at better rates, thus a considerable saving on material. They can also complete the job quicker with the use of tools such as a compressed air nail gun, consequently saving much time on their own and your labour expense.



You won't do better than 'Ronnies Furniture', as so many satisfied expats will attest to!

You need to call Alev Kurtman the best carpenter on the Island..... His work is first rate, and I won't use anybody else.... I can send you some picture of the quality of his work if you would like... He too has his own workshop and uses swedish pine... No nail guns used as these do not give a quality finish, only proper joints and screws used... And I know because thats why we use him... his work always last the test of time..

Yes if you want quality work by a british time served tradesman, go and see Daz up in LeaDaz Bar (old Stumble Inn)

Quality workmanship from the carpenter on the Karakum road just past the petrol station heading east. He always has wooden chests, mirrors etc outside on the roadside.



In Catalkoy on the right before you get to Sheraz restaurant again another quality carpenter.



Have used them both and they are both highly skilled.

Message 2. Well as you know I am not one of your satisfied customers. Nice doors made for the not

unconsiderable sum of 1380 but the fitting was poor to say the lease. They have been back on several

occasions since but problems remain. On their final visit they were asked if that was the best that they

could do? Their reply was yes at which my wife asked them to leave. So anyone considering them for

similar work, you are welcome to come and see for yourselves.

Msg 8:



I have no commercial connection with 'Ronnies Furniture' - but I do know that you were told that if you had a problem, it would be attended to.



At least have the guts to go to their shop and tell them what concerns you, instead of resorting to your underhand smear tactics on this forum - not for the first time.



Incidentally, had your builder supplied these superb doors, you'd have been paying double!



Attn: Msg 1 - depending on the job, 'Ronnies' can be relied on to use the best fixing method - they do not cut corners.

Msg 9:



Not interested in your one-sided plugging and blind loyalty, just stating the facts. Again any potential

customers out there are welcome to come and see for themselves.

Msg 10:



Too many people know of and have experienced, first hand, complete satisfaction from 'Ronnies Furniture' - your unjustified whining is totally without foundation. Your feeble and failed attempts to undermine the already sound reputation of long established and honest business people does you no credit; in fact, only makes you a laughing stock!



It's time to quit while you [mistakenly] think you're ahead!

We had our cupboard doors (20 in total) made by Ronnie's after hubby made the carcase of a floor to ceiling cupboard. A place where i could easily hide anything. that big we did an inventory when we put things away.



Must admit very pleased with service, quality and price.

I can recommend Alev too he speaks excellent english and worked in Germany for many years and you know how fussy they are! He is refitting my friends wooden Gulet at the moment in the old harbour all his work is hand finished.
