A bespoke Hampshire-based kitchen, bedroom and bathroom cabinetmaker says its installation of a Hoffman dovetail jointing system was like experiencing the “industrial revolution”.

Founder and owner of Romsey Cabinet Makers Steven Curtis first caught wind of the system’s potential during a visit to Woodmex some years ago. He had decided against buying a CNC machine as his jobs have a high degree of individual styling and bespoke detail.

After demonstrations of the system, a manually-operated MU2 model together with an NSF Morso for the cutting of cabinet face frames was installed at the end of last year.

Mr Curtis said the Hoffman, which replaced the labour intensive traditional method of pinning and stapling joints, had proved itself adaptable and efficient across a range of styles and jobs.

The Hoffman MU2 and NSF Morso package retails from £3,500 upwards.
