Prior recommendation from Merry Alderman Ritsch on the Bloomingdale blog: I would highly recommend FOUR BROTHERS. They did some great built-in book shelves for us.
Prior comment in March 2010 from Jess Owens: I second the Four Brothers recommendation. They did some really nice work for me on my kitchen/dining room.
Others possibly still in business:
Prior recommendation via self-referral on U St listserv: I am a custom carpenter who has been working in the area for the last four years. My specialty is making small spaces more usable by building things like shelving, cabinets, and radiator covers. I offer free estimates and would be happy to come look at any project you have. I will supply references and pictures on request. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Prior recommendation via self-referral: I am a general contractor/master carpenter and just moved to Bloomingdale and would be available to provide services to a fellow neighbor. I have 23 years experience doing high-end home remodeling and carpentry and would ultimately like to maintain the majority of my business locally.
Still in business as of January 2014: From Bloomingdale listserv including as work as handyman, Facebook link w/ photos: http://bloomingdaleneighborhood.blogspot.com/2014/01/bloomingdale-resident-brian-pattersons.html
Prior recommendation from Kimberly on Eckington listserv: I highly recommend. He is a master carpenter and really honest and hard working.
As of November 2015: the last post found was from Allison on the Bloomingdale listserv in September 2012: We like Raymond (Andy) Hensley. He’s not uber cheap but he’s reasonable and does good work. He’s mostly ly a carpenter but wiling to do other jobs. (We had him install a door, change a window, and replace broken glass. He also did some concrete removal.
