About me

My name is Richard and I was probably the only City & Guilds qualified design and cabinet maker/wood machine operator, who was born with scoliosis of the spine and only one arm in the UK.


Having always enjoyed working with wood, because of its warmth, beauty, variety and strength. I studied cabinet making at Weymouth College to become a qualified design and cabinet maker/wood machine operator. In addition to these skills I have City & Guilds qualifications to finish a product/item in either wood staining or French polishing. Qualifications


One of the lecturers was cabinet maker John Bunford, who trained to be a cabinet maker by taking on an apprenticeship with the famous furniture designer and maker John Makepeace OBE.

I hope the above can be an inspiration to you or someone you may know.
