Hand Made Furniture

Based in Yeovil Somerset
I have always had an interest in working with wood, although this didn't manifest in any seriousness until I started making things for my daughter when she was young, rocking toys, play box, garden swing to mention a few.
After retiring from a career as Civil and Structural Engineer, Ian trained at the Boat Building Academy (BBA), Lyme Regis, Dorset (www.boatbuildingacademy.com). At the end of the course at the BBA, he achieved a level 3 Diploma in Furniture Making.
During the course we had to make various projects some of which are included in the photographs on this website. My final project piece was the Mini Octagonal Greenhouse shown in the photographs as a Personal Project Piece. This was designed and built by myself and is made in Western Red Cedar except for the feet which are in Oak to make them more durable.
As indicated above I am retired and carry out the woodwork in my spare time. I am happy to accept commissions for furniture or other wooden pieces.
I would be happy to discuss any requirements you may have for small items of furniture with you. Please contact me on 0787 672 0119 or email@example.com
