Who is Nick James?

Nick James is a highly skilled craftsman. He’s an advocate of traditional woodworking techniques that are rare in contemporary practice. A machine can’t pick up a piece of wood, study the flow of the grain or make a decision about how to use it.



In 2003 he returned to his native Newcastle to start his own business. Nick’s passion for natural materials and intelligent design is central to his practice. Awards include The Worshipful Company of Furniture Maker’s Trophy For Excellence In Craft Skills. In addition to working to commission and producing limited edition pieces Nick regularly creates work for exhibition.

Most of my work is made to commission and sold online, I do also stock selected shops and galleries both in the UK and further afield. If you are interested in becoming a stockist please see Trade and Wholesale
