It all began with lego...

I have always loved to make things and am lucky enough that it now can be my work. I started with buying, restoring and selling furniture through auction and then moved to work for a renowned Architectural salvage company based in Bath. Here I was involved with dealing in and restoring a huge range of period and architectural features from church pulpits to grand fireplaces to cast iron baths. In turn this spurred an interest in restoring my own period house, of which I have now completed several and from that have been involved in renovating properties for clients. It was a natural progression to make my own furniture and as demand grew it led to starting my own business nearly twenty years ago.

After a move to beautiful Devon ten years ago with my wife and two sons I now have a workshop in Bampton making handmade furniture and bespoke kitchens on commission. I work closely with my clients and discuss and develop their designs and ideas with them.
