Traditional, custom furniture in English hardwoods

What kinds of wood do I use?



I love simplicity of design and flow, and the beauty of the native wood. They help to create unique, custom furniture.

I work with the very best English native hardwoods. These are normally kiln dried, to withstand the modern environment of central heating.

The choice is normally from the following:

  • Ash (if available)

  • Beech - including spalted

  • Bog Oak (difficult to find nowadays)

  • Elm

  • Oak

  • Sweet Chestnut

  • Sycamore - including figured or rippled - very pretty to look at

  • Walnut

  • Yew (if available)

Naturally, the wood must be suitable for the particular job; for example, strong enough to be load-bearing table legs.
