I design and make unique furniture pieces built from reclaimed, infested and decayed woods.

Jewellery Box in Birch and Oak

Most of my work is commissioned furniture designed to meet specific needs and settings. I work with reclaimed and repaired woods, alongside prime grade sustainable hardwoods, to make pieces with character, practicality and longevity.

Sideboard in Beech and Mahogany

I’m influenced by Modernist design ideals and aesthetics with simple line and form. This plays and contrasts against diverse patterns in the materials used throughout my work.

About

I focus on exploring the rich diversity of wood as a natural material to create unique and collectible pieces. My studio is based nearby Lincoln in the UK and I’m trained in traditional cabinet making and design.

Most of the tools and processes involved in my work are very traditional.

Cabinet making tools

I create heirloom quality furniture incorporating hand cut joinery and carefully selected materials.
