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.
