The highest standard of bespoke joinery

“Established for over 40 years, Marlin is a family run business currently in the hands of Mark and Neil as the 2nd and 3rd generations.

Based at our workshop in Burntwood, West Midlands, we provide private homeowners, builders and architects from across the Midlands – including Staffordshire, Derbyshire and Shropshire – with the finest bespoke joinery to, architectural drawings, our own design or to replicate existing.

Combining traditional craftsmanship with modern machinery as highly skilled joiners we have years of experience working on conservation/restoration projects, including listed buildings, barn conversions and churches.

As well as replicating existing joinery, or working to an architects design, we also offer our own designs and ideas developed over years of experience all supported by CAD drawings.

The majority of our work is from customer recommendation, because we take pride in our work, with close attention to detail with customer satisfaction at our forefront.

Being a family business means we have stability and flexibility and a commitment to an extra sense of purpose and pride in our work.

Our promise is that either Mark or Neil (or often both) will be involved in every stage of your project – in initial discussions, planning design and costing, manufacturing and installation and after sales.”

Type of timbers we use. All the timbers we use are FSC certified timbers. Other timbers are available but for external joinery our most popular choices are:

Sapele. The commercially imported hardwood is reminiscent of mahogany, and is a part of the same Meliaceae family. It is darker in tone and has a distinctive figure

European Oak. 

Engineered Softwood. These modified solutions have been developed over years of research and provide a more stable timber option that can be used in a number of ways including joinery, doors and windows.

Meranti. Shorea, Parashorea. Meranti is a soft to firm hardwood timber commonly used for decorative purposes such as mouldings, furniture, panelling, joinery and window frames. It is a very versatile and durable timber for indoor applications, and can be painted and stained to match the colour and designs in your home.

Accoya. Created from sustainably-sourced wood, Accoya® undergoes a proprietary, non-toxic acetylation process that permanently modifies the wood to the core. The result: an environmentally friendly solid wood with durability, dimensional stability and beauty that matches or exceeds even the best tropical hardwood.

Idigbo. West African Idigbo Timber imported FAS grade, is a yellow-brown coloured hardwood. It is commonly used as an inexpensive alternative to Oak due to its likeness when stained the same colour.

Other timbers are available such as Pitch Pine, Douglas Fir, Ash, Red Grandis, Beech
