Commissioning a piece of furniture is very straightforward, and
I aim to make the process as enjoyable as possible.  I usually begin with an informal consultation at your home, or the place in which the intended piece of furniture will live.  We discuss your requirements in detail - the purpose of the piece, dimensions, surroundings, personal taste etc, and any ideas you may have by way of design preferences, choice of wood and finish to be used, as well as budget parameters and a timescale for work.
 
Back at the workshop, I work on design ideas, with costings and timeframes for each, and return to you with drawings and wood samples for your feedback and comments. Once the design and materials have been agreed, I take a deposit, typically 50%, with the balance payable on delivery.
 
I very much welcome a visit to the workshop for you to view
the work in progress and share in the pleasure of seeing your piece evolve.
 
If you would like to know more, or are interested in commissioning a piece of furniture, please call or email.
