To make or break an interior design, carpentry plays the most crucial part in beautifying and enhancing any original simple spaces.
That is why, at Carpenters, we understand.
Our mission is to provide only the finest quality of carpentry works, exhibiting our years of experience and workmanship through every single plank, every single nail, every single laminate that we use.
Our choice of Materials
At Carpenters, our choice of material is always solid plywood. Solid plywood is basically the combinations of various thin sheets of wood veneer, and one of the most widely used wood products in the world.
Solid plywood is resistance to cracking, shrinkage, splitting, and twisting/warping, due to its generally high strength.
Other cheaper alternatives for wood carcass may include particleboard, or MDF, which are pulverized wood. They are a lot cheaper, denser and more uniform than plywood, and are usually used for cheap and mass productions. These materials are prone to expansion and discoloration due to moisture.

Laminates or High Pressure Laminate (HPL) are made up of different layers of papers soaked in chemical resins which are then compressed under heat and high pressure to produce the laminates.
At Carpenters, we only use the market’s highest quality laminates, in combination with our workmanship, to deliver near to perfection final products for all our clients.
