I am a cabinet maker and designer living in the Cotswolds, England where I was born, and where I served my apprenticeship. It is from this stunning and inspirational part of the United Kingdom that I now run my successful business.
I design modern contemporary furniture to order, accentuating traditional cabinet making methods.Hand cut joints are a specialty of mine and the use of a specific joint for bespoke items is discussed with the client during the design process.
I hand pick the finest materials from well-maintained timber yards. Joints reflected in design are chosen to allow the timber to breath while gently aging; resulting in long life and durability thus maintaining functionality and the freshness of the design.
“Practical modern art serving functional requirements.”
I have always had the passion to create and design from an early age and as a young lad could often be found making benches, seating arrangements or storage out of old pallets. My passion remains and having served an apprenticeship and gained experience from working internationally, I have a wider knowledge of my trade which benefits my clients. I have worked in Queenstown, New Zealand and Zurich, Switzerland installing within homes that have architectural importance. My work as a cabinet maker can be found in the homes of the rich and famous.

The key factor of my furniture is that I use traditional jointing methods. I love hand cut joints, the essence quality, and the epitome of craftsmanship….
