Hand-Made Rustic Furniture

Ever since I was a child I have had a love of timber and over the years created furniture pieces as a hobby.

In 2012 I was made redundant and given my age, found it very hard to find new employment, this led me to consider my love and passion for creating furniture out of old recycled timber in a more serious way.

As it turns out it was a blessing in disguise because it has given me the opportunity to find my niche for making one off pieces. Items I have made range from spice racks, bathroom vanities, lamps, TV cabinets through to entire kitchens. There is no limit to imagination when recycled timber is involved.

I outsource my timber from demolition sites through to private sellers with an eye for timber with old regrowth. Old recycled timber has a depth of character that new timber can’t match. Its colour and closeness of the grain makes for very rustic furniture, some of the timber I’ve used has been over 200 years old.

My preferred timber to use is Oregon, the same timber used for years in building old traditional boats.

These are a few pictures of some of the pieces that I have made for clients recently.

If you are interested in having something unique made up and a one off piece, just give me a call and I’m only too happy to discuss your needs with you.
