I design and make quality furniture near Melrose in the Scottish borders. The workshop is just off the A68, the main road to Edinburgh. Some furniture is usually on display in the workshop but I mainly work to commission. I enjoy working with clients to arrive at a functional design that suits their requirements. I admire the simplicity of construction of traditional and early furniture and the clean lines of modern design and like to combine these styles. I mostly work with solid timber using the local hardwoods Oak, Ash, Elm, Cherry, Lime, Sycamore and Beech. Previous commissions range from display cabinets, bookshelves and dining tables to stools and knife blocks.
