Our very experienced team is deliberately small to give us full control of the
quality of the work produced. We focus on one project at a time from design
to installation – so you can be assured we take great care of your project.

Jim designs and makes things from wood

Jim Sharples grew up in rural Cumbria before moving to the West Country in 2000. He studied woodwork for three years at City of Bristol college and has gone on to produce some stunning work, including the 2.5 tonne lockgate benches on Bristol’s harbourside and cabinets for Jamie’s Italian. Furniture making is his passion, something that shines through every piece he creates.

Jo deals with finishings (and beginnings)

When you make an enquiry, Jim’s wife Jo is there to find out exactly what you want. She oversee’s your project right through to completion and she is also a skilled furniture painter and provides the finishing for many of our pieces. Jo runs all of our social media and takes the photos of our finished work.
