"I have known Tom for some years now and have enjoyed the pleasure of commissioning items, the excitement of waiting for the completion, then living with and appreciating his excellent work.

Tom has an eye for taking some splendid wood, working with the grain and turning it into an item of beauty and usefulness.

There are few straight lines in Tom’s work, curves and making the most of what the grain offers loom large and the results are outstanding.

Enjoy the portfolio of his work and check out the rocking chairs - I have the first one!"

Julian Kettle, Edinburgh

“We first met Tom in 2005, when we were looking for someone to make us fitted wardrobes. He came highly recommended and proved a very valuable find, indeed. Tom is passionate about his craft and is obviously extremely skilled in his furniture design, but most importantly he listens to the customer and will adapt his design to his/her specific needs and budget. To date he has made our fitted wardrobes - exactly what we wanted within a tight budget following an expensive extension. He designed and made an ingenious tongue and groove bath panel incorporating ‘hidden doors’ so that we can utilise the wasted space behind. He made us a rustic cabinet of shelves and a mirror from old pallets, and he made a magnificent job of stripping back an oak shelf in the bathroom and treating it as it should have been in the first place! We also have several of his designs in the pending tray just waiting for that sunny day! All-in-all, Tom is our ‘wood’ man and the first person we go to with any joinery or furniture queries/ideas. He is honest and trustworthy and a true find!”

Craig and Tricia Masson, Barnton, Edinburgh

“Tom is an exceptionally gifted craftsman who will turn his hand to anything even if it requires him taking on a project he’s never attempted before! More at home designing and creating beautiful furniture, he wasn’t at all fazed by my request for a hand built kitchen and pergola! He has an amazing eye for detail and takes the same care and attention over every project, no matter how big or small.”

Lynne Macintosh, Murrayfield, Edinburgh

“We approached Tom to design and make a square, eight-seater dining table, which had no intrusive legs, to fit in a fairly tight space. Tom involved us at every stage from design, through timber selection, to the finished article... which is stunning! Tom can put you in touch with us should you wish to see and discuss his work. We only wish we had more things for him to make for us."
