Astrid and her team are excellent! Real attention to detail, no corners cut. Excellent craftsmanship. Excellent communication and pricing – we always knew what was happening, how long it was taking, how much.

We have recommended Astrid to loads of people who have then gone on to have work done. Highly highly recommended.

The Touchwood team work with an excellent and highly considerate ethic. Their work is beautiful, meticulous and of very high quality. The team works together quietly an harmoniously, they treat the environment around their work with care and consideration. I highly recommend their work and feel fortunate to have found my way to them.

Thank you so much for your recent work at my house. The doors look lovely. I have since had some great comments from family and friends about them and your work. 
I enjoy following you on FB and am so proud of what you do and how your work centres on empowering women and kids with fantastic skills and confidence.

After hearing about Astrid’s work as a carpenter, especially teaching women carpentry and other DIY skills, I commissioned her to design a driveway gate which would look “a bit out of the ordinary”. The result was extraordinary, and passers-by have repeatedly commented on its beauty and uniqueness – truly a piece of art. I then asked her to replace a door to our barn. Although she didn’t build the door herself, she did a fantastic job in re-fitting it, renewing the surrounding frame, the floor inside, and generally creating a wonderful fitting door. I’m just waiting for another opportunity to invite Astrid to let her creativity flow on another project. She enjoys working collaboratively, is wide open to ideas and suggestions, and is thoroughly competent in what she obviously enjoys: working with wood.  I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.
