My father was a woodworker, and some of my earliest memories are watching him at work. His passion for wood touched me as a boy and became my passion too.
At the beginning of 2012 I found myself in a redundancy situation and decided to set up a wood working business of my own. Originally I planned to produce high quality wooden items both off the peg and made to order. But as things took shape I found myself receiving commissions for built in and freestanding pieces of furniture and so I have developed the business to include this sort of work too.
I believe that great products start with great materials so I am careful when choosing timber. Only the best quality boards are selected, some are traditional woods but much is exotic, and all is responsibly sourced. As I am unable to source exotic timber locally I travel to my UK based timber merchants and personally hand pick each plank of wood before taking it back to my workshop in Jersey.
Most of the items I produce are my own designs but I am happy to handcraft bespoke pieces according to your specific requirements. Once a project is complete I finalise by adding my makers mark so that you can be confident the item is authentic.
Aside from accepting private commissions and this website my work is available at the various craft fairs and markets that I attend around Jersey & in the UK.
