My name is Jack. I design and make furniture at my workshop in Walthamstow, north London.
I use traditional tools and techniques as much as possible in the design and making process, rather than relying solely on modern machines and power tools. Working in this way can sometimes (though not always) take a bit longer. It also, however, brings the maker closer to the materials, and, I hope, yields a finished product that has something of the maker in it.
I trained in fine furniture making at Williams and Cleal in Somerset, and have 5 years experience making bespoke furniture professionally.
