About Capel-Gors Carpentry
Capel Gors was originally a Methodist Chapel built in 1884 at the end of the first Welsh Revival. It was built on this remote hill side location in order to service the needs of the sheep farming community.
In 1969 it was closed down and the Chapel along with two ruins were sold off. We first acquired the property in 1986 and restored one ruin to a fully functional workshop. The Chapel was converted into our home and the third ruin into a holiday cottage. The building is situated 700 feet above sea level at the head of the Conwy Valley. From our workshop we have views of the Snowdon range.
During the renovations of these buildings people in the area took an interest in our wood work and began placing orders for kitchens and cottage furniture. Since 1990 we have made and fitted numerous kitchens and other bespoke furniture in our local area and as far a field as Birmingham, Lancashire and Essex. We have also constructed and fitted items for clients in Germany.
Over the years we have refined and developed our designs but always holding to the original principle that all our kitchens are made from 100% wood. This means that the interiors are made of timber and hand finished in stain and oil. We have an aversion to mixing natural wood with synthetic materials, having noticed that many kitchen manufactures advertise solid wood kitchens but refer only to the fascias and not the interiorís, much to the disappointment of there clients. From the moment you first see and touch our kitchenís it is wood all the way through to the back panels. We do not even use plastic feet to mount the units on.
At Capel Gors we are surrounded by woodland and the pleasure of working with this wonderful, natural and aromatic substance enhances our daily quality of life and work. We would like to think that in fitting such products to your home would enhance yours too.
