About UsGetting to know the company
Stephen Spooner began S.A.SPOONER in 1998 after a five-year apprenticeship with James Longley & Co Ltd in West Sussex.
In his time at James Longley, Stephen worked on several large contracts, including the refurbishment of Arundel castle and the restoration of the interiors of Hampton Court Palace after their destruction by fire in 1986.
After redundancy, Stephen worked as a journeyman, travelling between workshops until finally starting his own business with a workshop of his own.
He will take a project from first consultation through manufacture, to final installation – and put traditional quality into every detail.The woods used, style of work and type of project are based on the customer’s own requirements, and the finished pieces are tailored to their taste, needs and budget.
Either furniture, kitchens, period fittings or a folly – everything is supplied with good old fashioned quality service.
City and Guilds Advanced Craft Qualifications and a proud member of The Institute of Carpenters – giving Stephen a FIOC Craft Fellowship level.

Starts with our choice of quality chosen suppliers who have pride and knowledge of their product. This is a standard we pull through all aspects of a project using consideration at every stage.
We aim to consider your wants and need in each of the layers of commissioning process, what ever the product or service you have chosen.
We do not come to a project with fixed ideas or designs, what we provide are options, choice and years of experience in traditional and contemporary design.
We are passionate about our craft and take pride in all the items we produce. We expect many of the projects we have been involved in to out live us.

Yes, we can take a project from design to installation.
Can you manufacture to our design?
Yes, we can manufacture your designs, we can also offer input into incomplete designs you may have to bring them to fruition.
Do you only take on large projects?
We are happy to take on smaller commissions.
Can you just give me a ball park figure?
We are unwilling to give ball park figures as they are unrealistic. We find both parties are more content after sharing project specific information and then establishing a personalised quote.
