From This, To These.

From this
to this A commission to make two memory boxes for brothers, from wood reflecting the passage through their life - memories in wood of their childhood and their adult travels.


From this
to this The chair in the centre is the original mid-19th Century Gillows original - a dining chair from a set of 8 made in Cuban Mahogany. The commission was to add 2 Carvers to complement the set of 8, which meant David had to copy the design, but REDESIGN and re-size the Carvers to the larger standard size for Carver Dining chairs. The result is STUNNING!

Raised in a Barn

Somehow the original glass in this Victorian credenza survived living in a farmer’s barn for years.
It now has pride of place in their living room.

Time will Tell

The owner of this important Tompion bracket clock wanted each of his sons to have a copy. I was commissioned to make the cases.
One was to be an exact copy (ebonised) and the other to be made of walnut.
