We're very proud of our workshops and everyone and everything in them but more than prized hand planes or the latest Festool gadget, it's how we go about things that sets us apart.
No two projects are identical and that means that our workshop teams are always thinking on their feet.
A project is typically assigned to one maker, or possibly a maker and an apprentice. They then take that project from initial drawing through machining, planing, creating components, glue-up, quality checks through to the final sand.
At this point our finishing team will work their magic to make sure each piece looks the part. Finishing is something of a lost art. Yes, it makes a piece of furniture look beautiful but it also helps us to understand the evolution of a piece and how continued loving care can enhance the value of a piece both aesthetically and monetarily.
There's a true culture of learning on our team and a genuine will to pass on skills and ideas to each other, and especially to the next generation. Some of the more experienced makers will tell you that its the apprentices often end up inspiring the old hands.
No two projects are the same.
From making tables and cabinetry to finishing lighting and mirrors, our team are constantly picking up new skills and perfecting the fundamentals.
Building on the skills of previous generations, refining, adding to them and passing them along is a important part of what we are doing as a company.
There's always an open dialogue between the studio and workshop with processes evolving and simplifying through lively debate!
