Need a carpenter...

Postby idpearl » Fri, 05 Sep 2008 9:33 am

Hi,

I need a carpenter to make a shelf for a TV. Nothing fancy, just plywood, MDF or even chipboard like most desks are made of.

Anyone know of someone - reasonable price?

Thanks,

Ian

I do - if you or a freind can communicate in Mandarin - we have been using this guy for over 2 years for many different jobs - very meticulous, good value for money - a little slow, but well worth it - he cannot communicate in English though

Can't you just go to IKEA or a DIY and get the materials and, well... do it yourself? All you need is a drill or a friend with a drill.

Sillingw,

My wife is fluent in Mandarin, so no problem. Please could you sms the number to me at 96452454? Thanks.

As for DIY, if they had a B&Q or something like it over here, no problem. I have drills, drivers and stuff, just don't have access to the materials!
