Worsley Woodworking

I set up Worsley Woodworking with the aim to grow as a craftsman and to design and make fine furniture that will be cherished by generations. My clients are those who seek quality and something aesthetically nourishing.

By chance I started woodturning at 14 years old, this ignited a spark and before long I was awarded two scholarships from the Association of Woodturners of Great Britain (AWGB). Following this confidence boost I started selling small pieces of work in a shop window. Feeling inspired I took work experience at a local joinery company which later led to a five year cabinet making apprenticeship. After serving my apprenticeship I decided to set up my own workshop and in June 2020 my business will be celebrating it's 10th year!

Design Philosophy

I believe furniture should first and foremost be practical, but there is nothing wrong in wanting a piece to be highly functional and pleasing to the senses.

I am more than happy to design in the style of a specific period, for example: Arts & Crafts, Shaker, Art Deco/Nouveau, Chippendale etc. Give me a challenge!

I thoroughly recommend you pay a visit to my workshop, either before you commission me or during the construction of your project. Please get in touch to make an appointment.


If you have something in mind, such as a bookcase, look for examples in magazines or browse the internet for ideas. Think about what features you like and don’t like; keep them aside for our first meeting.

Think about the purpose of the project. What is it to store? If anything? Is it to be a statement piece? This really helps me to get a good understanding of your needs.

After listening carefully to your requirements, I will measure the available space and think about the possible solutions.

I will work on some initial ideas, which I will present to you along with a no obligation quote.
