Bedside cabinet – one of a pair in rippled sycamore

Having worked in Software Engineering for a lifetime, I wanted to develop practical skills with tangible results and hopefully make something I could be proud of.

The course has provided me with an insight into the exacting standards necessary to create fine furniture and is equipping me with the key skills.

I have particularly enjoyed Marc’s enthusiasm for the design elements, his encouragement to challenge traditional design and to be open to a breadth of inputs/influences.
