David designs and makes bespoke contemporary furniture with strong design and subtle detail - hand made and authentic, each piece is unique. 
David works with the natural beauty of wood, making one piece at a time, practicing age-old methods of cabinet making alongside modern techniques.  He hand crafts the wood at his North Devon workshop using sustainable, often British timber, producing pieces that have an organic energy and contemporary feel.  The construction of the furniture relies mainly on traditional joints and a natural equilibrium between impeccable materials and simplistic design.  Each piece is beautifully finished with environmentally friendly, durable finishes.
Feeling the need to channel his creativity into something more lasting, David began designing and making furniture to commission, for private and public clients, as a natural progression to a successful career in product design consultancy.
“To me the highest form of art is functional craft - something that serves a purpose".
Alongside his commissioned furniture projects, David runs woodworking courses at his North Devon workshop for beginners, career changers and those wishing to hone their making and design skills.
