Woodworking is in my blood. My great grandfather on my mother's side was a piano maker and
on my father's side a tool maker. The tools these forebears left me are some of my most prized
I qualified as a cabinet maker and furniture designer in 1979 at the London College of Furniture,
attaining City and Guilds and Advanced City and Guilds.
I mainly use traditional methods though I am not adverse to modern techniques when they prove
to be more efficient.
I take pride in producing well made articles that will stand the test of time.
I live in the South Hokianga with my wife Elizabeth where we have extensive gardens and
orchards. Living in the country keeps my overheads down but I am willing to travel to Auckland and around the upper
north island to install any commission I produce in my workshop.
