About me & the courses:

I have been a successful cabinet maker, making bespoke furniture for customers for many years now. In that time I have made lots of different things, but by far my favorite things to make are boxes. I love the artistic freedom, the endless design possibilities and uses. From jewellery boxes, commerative boxes to simple desktop boxes.

I have also spent the last 15 years teaching 5 day cabinet making courses with a fellow cabinet maker in beautiful Cumbria, passing on what I have learnt, so I have decided to combine two of my favorite things and run weekend box making courses.

There will be a maximum of 4 people on any given weekend.

You will get to make a simple box with either mitred or dovetailed joints using a selection of woods. Your box can have a lift off lid or a hinged lid with solid brass hinges or hidden hinge pins and can be lined with a selection of materials from leather to felt. Dependent on time you can also do some simple inlay work. There is some leeway on design and size but please bare in mind you will only have 2 days to complete your box :-) For any more details please get in touch.
