I make reproductions of 17th-century joined furniture; boxes, chests, chairs, tables & more. My work follows techniques and methods from the period, all work is done exclusively with hand-tools. Oak is the primary timber used, pine, maple and ash are also used to a lesser degree. There are examples on the pages here, I’d also be glad to answer questions regarding forms not shown.

- My work is reproducing seventeenth-century oak furniture with green wood and hand tools. The study of surviving artifacts from that period, in museum and private collections is essential to the work carried out in my workshop. Related reference material includes period documents such as court records; art history, and the history of woodworking tools. For more details, see the "categories" tab on this sidebar.
