Dorothy, Fownhope  

Dear Tim,

'I always mean to write and say how much we are enjoying our dining room table!

It is at Christmas that we fully appreciate it - this year we managed 19 seated around it and one grandchild in a highchair nearby!'

Meryl, Much Dewchurch 

'Tim has completed a family commission for me, to an exceptional level of craftmanship and design. The large limed oak refectory table + 6 upholstered dining chairs + 2 upholstered carvers are an Arts and Crafts inspired design, with a 3 heart motif running throughout the design. Craftmanship is the key to Tim's work. I cannot commend him enough for his beautiful work, and intend to commission again next year.'

Christine, Malvern

'Thank you very much ~ the table & sideboard look great & are just what I wanted.  The room glows & looks so much bigger!'

Thank you for your careful consideration of all our needs in the specification of the desk and your creative fulfilment of them.'

The books are on their shelves, the cupboards have been filled and the malt is nestling in its cubby-hole - it all looks quite splendid!'
