About us

We are based at Lower Bisterne Farm near the New Forest market town of Ringwood in Hampshire, England (midway between Salisbury and Bournemouth).

The workshop itself is located on the B3347 the Ringwood - Christchurch road. You are welcome to drop by anytime, however it is best to ring first. The circle on the map shows the location.

The company was founded in 1997 by Tim Smith, he is not, however, new to the world of furniture. Having grown up the son of an antique dealer he soon became used to "going out for the day" with his father only to see piles of cobweb encrusted antiquity - which, having said that, was actually rather interesting.

After working for his father and other firms in the UK as well as Los Angeles and Sydney he returned with a desire to design and make furniture rather than continue solely with restoration. Today, we design and build individual pieces in either traditional or contemporary styles from a variety of timbers, as well as kitchens and offices. All pieces are truly individual and never (almost) repeated.

If you are looking for a personal service, want to be sure that what your buying is actually made in the UK and that every effort is made to ensure that all timber is purchased from trusted sources ... get in touch!
