Nick founded the team many moons ago. Born and bred in Newcastle, he has always enjoyed making things. At university, Nick experimented with lots of different materials but somehow he was always drawn back to wood. His favourite is oak – its feel, its smell and of course, its historical significance. His favourite piece to build is the dining table, As Nick says ‘It’s the most important piece of furniture in any home – everything happens around it - from children drawing their pictures to dinner parties and romantic meals.’ For Nick, every piece of his high quality furniture is destined to be an heirloom – passed down through the generations, becoming more cherished as time passes. His favourite tool is the pencil.
