Woodwork.


Woodwork in all its forms, furniture making, joinery and carpentry is where I have a great deal of experience. From my furniture making days I learnt all about the properties of wood and gained the precision needed to make and repair the finest pieces of furniture. This knowledge and skill easily translates into joinery and carpentry work.

These days I have a small workshop in Frome and can undertake furniture repair and one-off bespoke commissions however the time involved can make such pieces uneconomic. Furniture these days, whilst not made specifically to your particular requirements, can be bought for the price I would have to pay for the wood! Similarly with joinery, such as staircase and window manufacture, I am not equipped to compete with local joinery firms.

I am capable of Carpentry, in all its forms, from roof repairs to skirting boards; being particularly adept at the finer quality elements thanks to my furniture making background.
