The Workshop

Tucked away in the leafy depths of our garden; my chair making workshop is a small (12’ x 15’) timber framed building that I built in the winter of 2013.

My chairs are contemporary and handmade I use traditional green woodworking methods and materials sourced locally to Lewes, East Sussex.

I work the wood whilst it is still green (fresh). This allows me to craft my chairs using hand tools as the wood is still relatively soft.

Chair parts are either turned on a lathe, split & shaved or steamed and then bent into shape.

The seats are carved by hand from kiln-dried boards. This approach to chair making ensures each chair is individual and characterful.
