bullet_pointTestimonial from customers

Below is a sampling of our many testimonials from custom furniture design clients with Basement Workshops.


Hi Glenn

Paul and I would like to thank you so much for making such a beautiful job of the TV cabinet and coffee table, which complement the stereo cabinet also built by yourself.  Moving to a townhouse meant we had a lot less space so having the furniture designed for the area has certainly made a big difference.  The simplicity, style and workmanship is a credit to you.  

Many thanks

“I approached Basement Workshops with my ideas for a entertainment unit, they took those ideas and turned them into a reality, I was very please with the lovely finish and quality of my unit and the service was excellent, I would definitley recommend Basement to everyone I know.”

"It is no exaggeration to say that the entertainment and shelving unit Glenn and his team at Basement created for us transformed our living area, completely pulling the space together.  The end result looks stunning and reeks of quality.  It its beautifully despite the fact that our home is a 1920s bungalow so none of the walls are square.  The sleek, modern lines have a  timeless elegance that marry in with the character of the house creating a fresh contemporary feel.


Throughout the process Glenn collaborated with us fully to bring our ideas to life and his experience and expertise made it easy and enjoyable. The piece features a gas fire with a solid granite hearth and the Basement team greatly assisted in achieving a seamless end result.  We consider it an investment and have no doubt we have significantly lifted the overall value of our home due to the enduring design and craftsmanship of the work."

Glenn did a lovely job on a coffee table I commissioned. We’re still using it ten years later.

I have had the pleasure of working with Glenn Hogg for nearly 20 years, from when we opened our first Askew Store in Parnell. I had designed the (simple) interior of the store, and upon showing it to Glenn

he came up with even better solutions to the design and the details within. This continued on through another 8 versions of Askew, each store becoming more intricate over the years. Glenn and I have also collaborated on many other furniture pieces, some which have sold in Askew, and others ending up in my home(s). Quality of workmanship, is always excellent, and something I never had to question. Basement allows Glenn the unique situation of being able to create and design product from the ground up, from the workroom to the showroom, hands on throughout the process.
