'Faidhich' Large Dining Table
Made from solid Beech this bespoke table was created for a customer who wanted a statement piece at the heart of their home. The table top is veneered and has a mitred solid wood edge. The dark staining creates a beautiful contrast with the natural Beech colour.
Measuring 3.8m long it was important that this table was able to come apart to fit into the customers home and I achieved this using some clever design.

‘Arudeko’ – Japanese Style Room Divider
Made from Solid Aromatic Cedar Inlaid with Ebonised Poplar, Walnut, Abalone, Mother of Pearl, and Mottled Shoji Paper.
My Japanese style room divider is a beautiful and functional piece. The Shoji paper diffuses light in a soft and luminescent way, and can be lit naturally from a window or with directional lighting. I custom made the hinges to ensure that the screen can be postioned in multiple ways. It is easy to add more panels at a later stage to account for moving home or changing position. It is perfect for screening off home office areas at the end of a day or creating a cosy sectional area in a large open plan home.

My second Japanese style room divider is another beautiful and functional piece.

It can be taken apart for replacing paper in time if necessary so it can be used for generations to come. perfect for screening off home office areas at the end of a day or creating a cosy sectional area in a large open plan home.
“Mavis” Display cabinet
Made from Solid Scottish Character Oak and Wych Elm
The ‘Mavis’ Cabinet was my first piece at the Chippendale School of Furniture. I wanted to create a timeless and elegant display cabinet that would complement the items displayed. It stands as a beautiful piece of art in its own right which includes lots of different techniques and skills. I spent time choosing each piece of wood for its beautiful character, including knots and shakes.
Art Deco Style Side Table
Made from Solid Aromatic Cedar, with Walnut and Ebonised Poplar Inlays
The Art Deco Side table is a quirky design. I was having fun with shape and form, and it was the first piece I designed as I was making it, so I could really enjoy creative experimentation. One of my influences is the Art Deco period, and this is very much reflected here. It is very lightweight and versitle, and the perfect height for a cup of coffee next to the sofa!
