From design to completion, I work in close contact with the client in order to form an understanding of their needs in terms of aesthetics and function, and to develop their idea into a design and finished product. After an initial meeting, drawings, and where necessary, a scale model are produced, and these are further developed with the client until they are completely satisfied and approve the project to go to production.

I pride my business on this high level of bespoke service and customer satisfaction, and using a wide range of materials, including hardwood, softwood, veneer and man-made materials, can offer a variety of solutions to suit any requirement and budget.

I trained in an apprenticeship and have 5 years experience in carpentry and joinery working in a Kent-based joinery firm. I then furthered my skills attending a cabinetmaking course at The London Guildhall University, where I studied the finer points of handcrafted woodworking and furniture design, achieving GNVQ level 3 in Furniture Making.
