My experience as a carpenter/joiner/furniture maker spans over 20 years. After four years making and restoring furniture in Devon I moved to London and began site renovation of period properties.
I later moved to a workshop in Peckham’s Bussey Building, South East London, where I focussed more on furniture and kitchen design. Reclaimed wood and salvaged items often made the starting point for a new commission.
Now based in Bristol, I still work for many London clients and the areas in-between. My passion for old materials remains, and I still enjoy finding unusual pieces of reclaimed wood to form the base of a bespoke piece.
I’m also drawn to using materials like birch ply and phenolic ply. Not only are they more readily available, they’re more economical, so I can produce a high-spec product for a lot less. This allows designs to be easily scaled up, which has led me to develop a range of products out of some of my private commissions.
I’m used to working with a wide range of clients, from private individuals to business owners and designers. However, I’m keen to keep my business small and the service personal, so each client deals directly with me.
Bespoke projects make up the majority of my work, whether I’m commissioned to design an item or produce to designers’ exacting requirements. Often, commissions involve incorporating clients’ ideas and developing a design together. I am often in London and can always schedule meetings for new clients.
