Combining traditional craftsmanship with digital manufacturing technologies
I create unique furniture, and household objects, using quality materials in the workshop I renovated from an old stable block . I make one off ‘bespoke’ pieces for individual clients, and I also have a range of ‘in house designs’ that have been developed over a number of years.
These designs have developed from my interest in digital manufacturing, for production runs of up to 50 in my own workshop. I have aimed for simplicity and elegance in the design and construction of each piece, as well as being mindful of environmental considerations.
These chairs are constructed from a sturdy solid oak frame with a post industrial recycled plastic sheet used to make the back and the seat. They are durable, easy to clean, can be stacked up to 3 high, and come in a range of colors. All parts are bolted together for easy repair or recycling

A range of solid wood side tables in two sizes. The solid oak legs and joints are turned on a computer controlled lathe and all parts are bolted together for self assembly and easy transport.

All the pieces in this section have been designed and made for private clients. Commissioning a piece of furniture is a collaborative process that starts with making decisions about style, budget, materials, and settings. I will then develop some initial ideas and, after more discussions, a final design will be worked up. This could be in the form of computer models, renderings, physical models or even a full scale mock up.
Once we are happy that all the details have been worked out making can begin and when complete the piece will be installed. The whole process can take several months depending on how large or complex the commission is. If you are considering getting a piece specially made, please email me with a brief description of what you would like, and then we can arrange a meeting.
