I design and make furniture and other wooden objects at my workshop in Walthamstow, north London.
I trained in fine furniture making at Williams and Cleal in Somerset, and have 5 years experience making bespoke furniture professionally.
I use traditional hand tools and techniques as much as possible in the design and making process, rather than relying solely on machines and power tools. Working in this way can sometimes take a bit longer. It also brings the maker closer to the materials, yielding a finished product that has something of the maker in it.
The understanding eye sees the maker's fingerprints. They are evident in every detail... Leave fingerprints.
