Handmade Greenwood Chairs

Nothing gives me more satisfaction in life than creating something that is pleasing to the eye, satisfies the senses and serves a useful purpose.  There is little in this world so useful to the weary soul than a chair that provides sanctuary from the demands of modern life.  If I create a chair that appeals to the senses, provides comfort and support, and elicits a smile, I know my time has been well spent.

My materials are simple – Ash, Oak, Beech, Birch, Black Thorn, White Thorn, Hazel, Willow, and a variety of fruit woods from my orchard.  I carefully select the wood that is best suited to the chair I am making, searching along the hedges or in the woods until I find what I need.  Then I begin the gentle process of working the wood using my hand tools. My process allows me to get close to the wood, to see and feel the form, grain, textures, colours, and character.  The intimacy of the work is reflected in the finished chair. I create chairs of all shapes and sizes for people of all shapes and sizes.
