Welcome to my website. Here I share something of the furniture I create in my workshop in West Sussex using traditional hand tools and techniques. Like many contemporary craft woodworkers I question the effect which the emphasis on machines and efficiency has had on the quality of the things we make and spirit of the work we do, and I enjoy exploring more traditional ways of working with wood. I believe these techniques give a sense of life, warmth and tactility which is difficult or impossible to get by other means. You can see pictures of some of my work below, and also read my blog where I post occasional updates about what I am up to in the workshop and articles about hand tool woodworking and craftsmanship.

I also teach the Alexander Technique in Midhurst and also in Bosham near Chichester, and run a small poetry press called Anima
