Cabinet Making

Firstly before 'good cabinet making' is 'good design', taking into account, form, function and aesthetics. William Morris (One of the founders of the Arts And Crafts Revival Movement) said that "Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful." This is our philosophies to. We design with your initial ideas and dimensions in mind, working with you to create exactly what you want.

Cabinet making demands a wide range of skills; an eye for detail; experienced knowledge of materials and the ability to use a broad selection of hand and machine tools. Timber is a tricky material to work with, it can shrink and contract across its grain. This has to be taken into account in the furniture construction. However there is nothing quite like the unique, natural gain and textures of wood. We can incorporate other materials in our work. We have used beaten copper, enamel, silver and brass inlays, marquetry, coloured glass, iron work and so on. We sometimes work with other craftsmen with specialist skills and incorporate their work with ours.
