Hi Jules and Paul,
I received my unique TV Stand and Small Cupboard today. They are both extremely chunky, solid beyond and they are simply stunning.They are more beautiful than I could have imagined and as they are bespoke pieces, no-one else in the world can ever have the same! Paul, you are truly a wizard with wood and I will be pleased to recommend your work to anyone (although the pieces speak for themselves). Jules, I have valued your friendly and speedy communications.
Thank you both Stephanie
I first started to think about a TV stand what seemed like eons ago. I wanted something small and compact that would also house my hi-fi. Surely not much to ask!! Anyway after a great deal of hunting and visits to several hi-fi / media shops I realised it was not going to be so easy to get what I wanted! Expensive MDF boxes that didn't even do what I wanted were not the answer. I even looked at Russ Andrews solutions (the hi-fi buffs will recognise the very expensive audio furniture!).
Purely by chance while searching on google images I came across an image of Simply Rustic Oaks Contemporary TV stand and the design appealed, but I realised it was not exactly what I needed. I had already looked in all the usual high street places...Barker &.., Habitat etc.
After a bit of deliberation my partner and I contacted Jules and arranged to visit (we don't live far away). We were immediately struck by the quality and craftsmanship of the pieces Julie and Paul happened to have at their home at that time. We realised Paul took a great deal of pride in what he did and my partner and I decided we would commission a TV stand and a bookcase. Unfortunately after making that decision we had a couple of major financial setbacks and had to put everything on hold for nearly a year!!
Jules and Paul were very understanding and eventually we did go ahead, albeit a year later and then due to Paul's workload we had to wait another 3 months!! All I can say is that it was worth the wait!!!! and that is an understatement and some. What we ended up with is stunning, has some real weight and solidity to it and does not compare even remotely to anything else we looked at originally.
Only problem we had was transporting what we had commissioned back home, as I said earlier we do not live far away so I thought (I have an estate) we will just pop down to Barnsley to collect. We had not bargained on the weight of solid kiln dried oak!!!! It is just not the same as the usual chain store furniture. When Paul asked me which rugby team I was going to get lift my bookcase onto the car roof I thought he was joking.....
Well of course we did manage to get our furniture home (after arranging for a friend with a bigger vehicle to come and help) and everything is now in place. It does exactly what we wanted and now we saving up for the next pieces!
What else can we say, we love what we bought and we will be back. This is furniture that will last and age to look even better and better.

"Having seen the chunky tables and chairs on the website we were expecting something special but what we received was truly spectacular. We designed something a little different from the standard range and Paul interpreted perfectly. Also, great customer service from Jules with a quick call here and there to keep us informed". A word of caution though -- make you eat all your wheetabix on delivery day, its heavy stuff !!! All in all a great experience -- we will be back. Simon Taylor - Durham City."
Once again, many thanks
Dear Jules and Paul, Thank you so much for all the beautiful furniture that you have made for us. We started with a fire surround, which was infinitely better than anything we had seen in the shops. We then came back for a storage box/coffee table and a coffee table with shelf, which were made to fit in a specific place, again absolutely brilliant. Having seen the quality of the pieces, we were convinced that Paul could make us some pieces not previously featured on the site (4 cube display unit, office table, and 3 drawer office unit). Not only does it look fantastic and has a spectacular finish, the table also fits exactly in a designated space (we previously spent many wasted hours trawling the internet to find something that would fit). We would very happily recommend simply rustic oak to anyone. Paul?s craftsmanship is second to none, the lead time we were given to make the furniture was spot on in all 3 cases. Furthermore, Jules and Paul are extremely nice people; a delight to deal with. The only difficulty now is to think what we can dream up next. Barbara and Jurgen
Julie and Paul Thankyou for our fantastic floating coffee table. It is better than I could have ever imagined. Thankyou for letting us call round to your home and look at the different shades of wood. For anyone who is considering placing an order - DO IT ... Fanastic service and a reasonably priced. Your buisness is a credit to you both. Im now thinking of what we can order next !! Regards Sandra, Chris, George and Harry (The boys also thank Julie for her good choice in games console games) !!

We collected our two tables yesterday, we were shown wonderful hospitality by Jules and Paul and we were over the moon with our items. They now have pride of place at home and we are sure they will give us years of pleasure. They are a delight to look at, the natural grain and markings make them truly unique but at the same time very warm and functional. We have no hesitation in recommending Simply Rustic Oak and wish Jules and Paul every success with their business. Thanks to you both!
Dear Paul & Jules. We just got our Fire surround delivered today. The surround is absolutely fantastic. The quality is very high and has a great finish. The surround looks great in our room and we are both so chuffed with it, our 3 Labrador puppies also think its fab, currently curled up in front of it. The service from Paul and Jules is brilliant, from the initial enquiry through to the product being delivered. Paul is a very talented man and is supported by his lovely wife Jules. They both make a great team and I will be recommending them to all my friends & family. Thanks to you both once again, Chris & Eilidh.
Dear Jules and Paul, I'm sorry it's only now I finally got the time to email you. We got the table last Thursday. Barry and I love it!!! It's so gorgeous. Exactly what we have in mind. Barry assembled it when it arrived. I was at work and he wanted to surprise me. So when I came home that evening, the table was already sitting so beautifully in our dining area. Barry told me how heavy each beam was. And when it's all assembled, he couldn't move it! "That's what happens when you don't listen to instructions!" I told him :) We have been warned several times that it's heavy. So he called his mates from work just to move it a few inches to where we want it to be. His mates were all impressed and loved the table. One of them is a carpenter and he was amazed. He said that it's a "proper" table and it will outlive us and can even be passed on to my grandchildren..:) My friends who have seen it so far are also impressed. It's worth the money. They've been asking where I got it from. Thank you very much again. I love the fact it's heavy, it's solid oak, it;s nicely finished. I love every inch of it. I'm a happy customer. Kind regards, Monette
Dear Paul and Julie Thank you so much for the fantastic oak fire surround, TV unit and, most recently, the wonderful bookcase that you have made for us. All to our own specific design and dimensions. The furniture is brilliant and of such a high quality - better than anything I have found in the shops. The quality of the furniture is matched by the quality of the service that you provided to us as well - exceptional and so friendly. We will definitely be coming back to you whenever we need more furniture made! Thanks so much again and all the best for the future! Lucy & Chris
Morning Julie & Paul
Thank you for making and delivering our rustic oak arched fire surround so quickly. It is absolutely beautiful. You are a very very talented man Paul, to be able to craft something so beautiful, stylish and unique, to our specifications. The colour you recommended julie is great and is virtually a match to our units, we couldn't have got a better match. Can't wait for the shelves to arrive. I will also be ordering two of the rustic oak mushroom side tables next month. Paul, your workmanship is outstanding and i have already passed your name onto some friends, and extolled your excellence to family and friends. When we have completed our lounge we will send you some photos.
All the very best for the future
Thanks very much again and best wishes

The coffee table arrived and it looks fantastic! It's just what we wanted, we had the kitchen extended 2 years ago and hadn't seen the table that we wanted until we went on your site, it's now taking pride of place. Thanks again for all your help, I'm sure I'll be back soon, an oak mantelpiece is next on the list.

Hi Paul and JulieJust a brief? email to thank you for your quick and friendly service. The oak beam table is exactly what was wanted and your flexibility in changing the size and finish was most helpful. I looked at a number of suppliers before I found you - your price is really competitive and quality of work excellent.
Thanks for the coffee!

Dear Julie and Paul, just a quick message to thank you for your personal attention and help during the buying process. An excellent service from initial contact through to delivery. As you know, we had reservations about ordering over the web and ideally would have preferred to view the 3 beam coffee table in person, but after consulting with your good self on a number of occasions we took the plunge and ordered. We are so glad we did, the table is mellowing in colour and looks better every week. it has started to dry out and shakes and splits now appearing only add to the beauty and character of the coffee table. As you know we live in northern Ireland and were originally put off by the cost of delivery but it was worth every penny and will have no hesitation in returning to yourselves for more pieces.
Thanks once again for everything,
Nick From Hertfordshire
Hi, just to let you know that the coffee table was safely delivered today. What a construction! and that was only the pallet! The table looks great - we have it in place and it really works in the space just as we wanted. Please pass on our thanks to Paul for the great job he has done with it, and thank you for all your help.

Just? a quick letter to say I've received the TV stand today and I am delighted to say it is everything I hoped for. Thanks again for building it to my specifications, as you can see the home theatre speaker fits in just perfectly.
Kind regards Steve.

Dear Julie and Paul,
A really big thank you from Val and me for the furniture you made. The quality and build is excellent and made to my requirements a truly bespoke service. I could not believe how heavy the items are, but then there is a lot of Oak in them. Delivery arrived on the day specified and so well packaged. The only thing I think we did wrong was that we should have ordered 2 mushroom tables, not the 1. So I will need to order another one next month. As promised I enclose some photos of everything now in place (will send via separate emails). Feel free to use if you wish. To sum up great service, great products and would recommend you to anyone. Kind regards

Amanda arrived home at nine and as I thought she loved the furniture as well, we are both really impressed with the service you have given us and will have no hesitation recommending you to friends. Who knows we may order some garden furniture sometime in the future.
Thanks again Nigel and Amanda.
