Bespoke Hand Made Furniture from the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire.
Welcome to our website. We design and make hand-made furniture from our workshop in Bream, in the Forest of Dean. All our designs are original and hand-made just for you, from a small bespoke kitchen through to free-standing bespoke furniture, such as a dresser, table or chest of drawers, etc.
2013 marks our 33rd anniversary of making fine furniture across the Monmouth, Chepstow, Wye Valley, Forest of Dean and Gloucestershire areas.

We do our best to guide you through the whole process of commissioning bespoke furniture and help whenever we can. The web pages cover just about every aspect of the business, so please read through them to get a better idea of what we could make for you.
For more details of the design process and how to get started with a commission, please have a look at the Design & Consultancy page. For more details about timber and the technical details of how furniture is made, etc., please have a look at the Materials, Finishes & Prices page and to see pictures of our work, please have a look at the Galleries.
We now have a lovely bespoke kitchen for you to see if you visit the workshop. It has a mixture of hand-painted and ash timber doors, with granite and timber worktops. There is a unique branchwork design across the ash doors, which can also be used on other types of furniture. It can be seen in the Kitchen Gallery..
Its about 6 years old now and has withstood large family gatherings and catering for a wedding of over 100 guests, so you will be able to see how well our work ages!
Value for money. There is a lot of mass-market furniture available at very low prices, often made in distant counties where labour costs are a lot lower. But when you want something that shows your own unique style, fits into that awkward space, blends in with your home and will last indefinitely if you take care of it, then a piece of genuine bespoke furniture, will give you better value for money in the long run.
Bespoke means something that is made entirely to the customers brief, but too often other companies offer a bespoke service that is no more than a few variations to a mass-produced product.
Fitting furniture into older properties, with uneven wall and difficult spaces is our speciality.
New for 2013
This year I will be concentrating more on bespoke free-standing furniture.
If you visit the workshop, you can also visit my wife Micheles studio and see her range of bespoke Ceramics, including her new Teapot range. Have a look at her Ceramics Gallery.
My other great passion in life is music and I've added a new webpage to share that with you. Click on the Music button to see a new youtube video I've just added.
