Furniture making
Coffee table in quarter-sawn oak with walnut inlay

I have always had a ‘visual’ personality but only in recent years have I found an outlet for my creative side in the world of furniture making. Matching contrasting woods and allowing the grain to speak for itself are among my favourite approaches. Using inlay work and steambending to add interest allows me to create singular pieces that combine form and function. How well something looks is of equal importance to me as how well it is made. I don’t always know what I’ll make until I’ve made it and embrace accident and mishap as creative catalysts! Wherever possible I try re-use wooden items that have become unloved and make them loved again!
