I have been a cabinet maker for 26 years working originally in Leicester before moving to Yorkshire, a spell in the Cotswolds and then back to Leicestershire to set up my own workshop. I have a very varied portfolio ranging from one off pieces of fine furniture to built in furniture and joinery.
In 2005 I attended The College of the Redwoods fine furniture program in California. The emphasis at the college was very much on the development of hand skills. It was in America that I started my interest in box making.
I am influenced by the arts and crafts movement and all my boxes are made using hand cut dovetail joints guaranteeing a very strong long lasting box which can be passed down through the generations.
