His pieces have brought warmth and soul to my home.

I have and am still having a wonderful time, co creating the designs and then enjoying the final magic of his work. He is a true craftsman, with absolute precision and attention to detail. His passion for what he does is evident with every delivery. Jono is very easy to deal with, nothing is a problem and he deliverers when he says. Jono has made my kitchen bench, book shelves, living room cupboard tops, vanities, mirror surrounds, swing chair and bed. I still have more projects in the pipeline. I don't like too much matching, so having that many pieces in my home indicates the variety and large scope of his work. Jono's pieces have brought warmth and soul to my home.

Jono proved to be the ultimate professional.

From day one, Jono proved to be the ultimate professional. Our order not only delivered right on time, but the quality of the work and the finish certainly lived up to our highest of expectations!


First touched base with Jono with a sketch and rough idea of an entertainment unit I wanted to match the new heater I planned to install. Within 24hrs he'd come back with a concept design that captured my idea perfectly. From that point on he took the idea and made it a reality in a short timeframe and exactly how I pictured it keeping me updated all the way through the process. Can't fault him or the workmanship and can not recommend highly enough. Already planning our next piece from Jono. Awesome work!

We love our Entertainment Unit !!

We love our Entertainment Unit. Jono was a pleasure to work with. Nothing was too much trouble for Jono. Very patient, professional and always willing to answer calls. Delivered it ahead of schedule too! Would not hesitate to recommend Jono.

My finished piece was even more stunning than I had imagined!

I absolutely loved working with Jono to create a design for my beautiful sideboard. He is so easy to work with and understands exactly what you want the finished product to be. His craftsmanship is outstanding and he works in a truly professional way, resulting in a product and service that is second to none. My finished piece was even more stunning than I had imagined!

Completely professional from start to finish!

Best tradie I’ve ever dealt with hands down. Completely professional from start to finish. Trustworthy, reliable and great at what he does. Nothing was too much trouble when we kept changing our brief. Couldn’t recommend Jono highly enough.

I thoroughly enjoyed the collaborative process and being a client.

So glad to have stumbled across the 2EIGHT3 website. Upon meeting Jono and walking into his workshop/display space, I felt that he was the one to craft my vanity idea for our bathroom reno. Jono goes that extra mile to collaborate with his clients to get the design right before commencing the project. His enthusiasm and passion for his craft is evident in the superbly finished hero piece (vanity and floating shelf) of our renovated bathroom. I thoroughly enjoyed the collaborative process and being a client. If you are looking for that special custom piece, you can't go past 2EIGHT3.

Highly recommend 2eight3!!

Highly recommend 2eight3, Jono made a stunning custom made tv cabinet, coffee table and side table. The quality and workmanship is exceptional. Jono is great to work with and understands and listens to what you want.

Our expectations have always been exceeded!

Jono has completed a number of timber projects for us including a king size timber bed frame with leather bedhead, recycled timber shelving and recycled timber features for our front entry and letter box.  We are extremely happy with both the products and service that Jono provided.  Jono has worked with us to make sure our vision is met and our expectations have always been exceeded!  We would recommend Jono for any timber work, no matter how large or small the job requirement!

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Jono.

We are extremely happy with the beautiful table Jono created for us. We approached Jono with a difficult task - to create a table that would fit an awkward, uneven space, and that would suit our style. The entire process from quote, design negotiation, and completion was delightful and we thoroughly enjoyed working with Jono. He is so professional and exceptionally skilled. Our piece was completed before time and to an excellent standard. Thank you Jono!!

I would highly recommend 2eight3.

Very happy with the service and finished product provided by Jono.  In particular I was impressed by his prompt return of  any correspondence and his willingness to take on board any input that I provided.I would confidently recommend him to anyone interested in his work. 

Delivered on every front

Jono helped us first design and then built our outdoor seating and table. From start to finish he was incredibly professional and provided excellent customer service. The designs were displaced using software which made a big difference as we had an idea of what the product was going to look like. We were working on tight deadline and Jono delivered well before this. We are very happy with the quality of the workmanship. We could not recommend Jono enough. Thanks Jono and look forward to working with you more in the future. Kushlan and Ruby

A cut above

Loved working with Jono! He designed and produced a fabulous dining table and kitchen shelves to match. Very friendly, professional and good communicator, he not only delivered on time (well, early in fact), but great quality work as well. Highly recommended!!!

Exceptionally professional

Last year we asked Jono to make a custom kitchen benchtop and shelving to go with our new white shaker kitchen. After our initial meeting we decided on searching for old floorboards as we wanted to keep the kitchen a little bit rustic and lived in. Jono managed to source some old flooring that was perfect for our needs. The finished kitchen benchtop and feature shelving was outstanding and the workmanship brilliant.Throughout this whole process, Jono was such an easy going person do work with, exceptionally professional and was always willing to discuss any concerns or issues that came up (and as our house is a little old and nothing is quite square, there were a few.) He worked extremely well with our kitchen installer (Chris Caller of Bensville) and together they produced a one of a kind kitchen. We cannot thank Jono enough and would happily recommend him to any future clients.   

We highly recommend 2eight3!!

We recently had our en-suite bathroom
renovated and after months of looking at a variety of vanity units in all price
brackets we were starting to lose hope that we would ever find something we
would like or could even live with. Luckily a friend put us in touch with Jono
from 2eight3. He came to our rescue very promptly and with in a short space of
time we had sketched together a unique vanity unit made from recycled timber
that suited our bathroom, our budget and us.

Jono is extremely professional, personable
and talented. We could not be happier with our vanity unit and the two huge
mirrors that were made to match. The service was faultless, they were installed
without a hitch and they complete our new bathroom beautifully.

We will be contacting Jono again for
other sustainable projects and would highly recommend 2eight3!!

Thanks again Jono!!!

Outstanding craftsmanship & customer service

The craftsmanship and friendly customer service we have received from Jono is second to none. I've been so fortunate to have 2 beautiful, bespoke pieces of furniture designed by Jono for our eclectic beach shack, we get amazing compliments from all our visitors on the design and finish. A true testament to Jono's talent! In addition, Jono worked with me to create a beautiful entry to our cottage. He listened to my ideas, sourced a beautiful old door for me to restore and then fitted it superbly with louvered windows. We have happily recommended him to friends & family, and have a long list of additions we will be contacting him for in the future.
