Heston Blumenthal talking about the Sweet shop trolley aired on the Good food channel program Inside Heston World

"It’s a beautiful piece of craftsmanship it's absolutely beautiful! It feels old and state of the art at the same time. Most importantly of all for me, it’s about trigging the emotions, these two layers up here, the sweet shop and bedtime. I tell you what, if you were a kid and had to dream of a sweet shop to have in your home, you couldn’t dream something better!"

Head of industrial design at Seymourpowell

"To ensure the sweet shop was the finest quality, we collaborated with the cabinetmaker Mark Heeler, who even had to make new tools specifically to make the sweet shop to the bespoke design," "Everything has been made as if it's real. The floorboards and rafters are hand-carved from oak and are perfectly to scale. The windows are made from special glass used for microscopic slides. The window frames are hand-crafted from solid ebony and each roof tile has been made individually and deliberately burnt on its edges for authenticity."

Dimitri A Bellos Restaurant Manager of The Fat Duck in Bray

The sweetshop is taking the guest experience to a different level. Amazing workmanship and vision. Thank you for your hard work and being part of the FD world. Best wishes

Mr A. C. Fulking, West Sussex

"Mark has completed a number of projects for us at our home including beautiful fitted wardrobes, ornate kitchen shelving and a wonderful industrial desk. Mark is a fantastic craftsman. His work is simply outstanding and always a celebration of the wood - the material he loves. His work is beautifully crafted, precise and well designed. He will work with you to bring your ideas to life or take on the full design. During installation, Mark works cleanly leaving very little disruption. I would not hesitate recommending Mark for any piece of cabinet making and design in wood you require."

Mr G. Easterbrook. Henfield West Sussex Luxury Partners Desk, Bespoke Walnut Bar, Henfield, West Sussex

"I have commissioned a lot of furniture from Mark over the years. This includes a Victorian styled bar, a solid oak Partners Desk and a dining table made from the roof beams in my Chapel. From the design process onwards, this has always been an enjoyable and rewarding experience watching Mark create furniture that exceeds my expectations. Mark's work feels like it will last many lifetimes and will be passed down the family."

Ms G Retro Style bespoke kitchen Brighton, West Sussex

"Mark Heeler is a very skilled and creative craftsman. He took on board all my ideas and needs I had for my new kitchen and enhanced them, coming up with improvements and brilliant touches that hadn't even crossed my mind - even though I had been thinking about my dream kitchen for years! I was determined to have a curvy SMEG fridge and Mark suggested recreating that curve throughout the kitchen, a genius idea that he then carried out to brilliant effect. He consulted me throughout the design and construction process, full of enthusiasm for the project. The team from John Lewis who came to deliver and install my appliances must see thousands of kitchens but they walked in and said "Wow, what a great kitchen!"
I would not hesitate recommending Mark and his work exceeded all expectations. I could not be happier with my fabulous new kitchen."

Mr D. Brown Handmade Italian Kitchen for their Client in Hurstpierpoint West Sussex and a Bespoke Art Deco kitchen in Brighton

"An important factor when designing a bespoke kitchen is the ability of the designer to understand the nuances and needs of each individual client. 
I have recently employed Mark Heeler to undertake two contrasting commissions. The first, a contemporary Italian Style kitchen and the second being strongly influenced by Art Deco styling. Mark completed both commissions on time and on budget. It is refreshing to find a master-craftsman who undertakes his installations with such a high degree of skill and more importantly, attention and coordination of every detail. Mark's joinery and design skills, his input and technical knowledge transformed the kitchen designs into ones that exceeded our Client's expectations and added value to each project.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Mark Heeler for any commission in the future."

J. Brown Bespoke Shaker style Kitchen, Fulking West Sussex

"I am very happy to recommend Mark Heeler. His work is nothing short of outstanding. In the past few years, Mark has worked on a number of projects for me and as a result my bespoke kitchen is the envy of all my friends. He has also made me a very impressive office desk. His attention to detail is second to none and his craftsmanship is evident wherever you look. He delivered on time and on budget despite my few changes of mind! His work is truly original and innovative. He is a credit to his profession and a true Artisan. I will certainly commission him again in the future."
