Chair Making

I have a love for chair design and making. The chair is the piece of furniture we interact with most, a good chair must be comfortable, strong enough to last generations of use,

light enough to move around and attactive to look at.

The chairs I design and make are based on the tried and tested techniques of traditional British Vernacular seating. I make both sets and unique one off pieces of furniture.

I source all the timber for my chairs locally, felling many of the trees I use myself.

All the turnings, legs, spindles etc, are made from sections split out of green (fresh felled) logs. These are thoroughly dried before the chair is assembled.

All my chairs come with a lifetime guarantee.

I also do interesting bespoke commissions including, beds, garden installation, seating, and one-off pieces of furniture.

Since starting to work three days a week as senior tutor at the cart shed, having a full order book, and being an on call fire fighter, I am only taking on interesting commissions. but please do drop me a message if you'd like something special made.

UK mainland delivery from £70. Sets of chairs, pallet delivered from £180.

Free form/ Welsh stick

When making freeform chairs I select wood with natural curves, split them in half so they match, then hand shape with a draw knife. 

£350-700

Special occasion chairs!

I can engrave or pyrography names, dates etc onto chairs for weddings, retirements, new borns.

Most designs can have rockers added!

Or bring an idea I'll see what I can do.
