the story

NIGEL BRIGGS - Chairmaker

I've always loved working with wood.
No two pieces are the same and you have to develop a relationship with each piece to know how best to treat it.
I started life as an engineer before retraining to be a violin maker and then spent two wonderful years making classical instruments for Southwell guitars.
In recent years I've moved more and more away from power tools and machines in favour of celebrating the joy of hand tools.
Green woodworking gives you an excellent opportunity to start at the beginning with the raw material of a log and gradually shape it with hand tools into fabulous works of art.
I love what I do and I'm grateful every day.

Design. Build. Enjoy.

Handcrafted items perfect for your home, office or outdoor area. Each piece I make is based on my classical training and created with age-old techniques so each is truly one-of-a-kind. I don’t just see this as a job, but as a passion, and am grateful for every day to be able to create works of art for my customers’.
