For many years I have wanted to make a long case clock. Now, 7 years after buying the movement, I have finally completed my first one, which is for my wife’s 50th birthday. The movement is a German Hermle model with a Westminster chime and moon phase dial. The case is made from cherry with a medium stain. I have modelled this one on the building that houses our showroom, Longnor Market Hall.
I am planning to put one in the showroom and make them as bespoke pieces incorporating features as customers wish. As a guide price this would cost around £5,000. Dimensions are 81″ x 15″ x 11″.
Please contact me if you are interested and would like to know more or discuss a possible commission.

We have just taken in a preloved immaculate Victorian oak dining set, which we made in 2007. The table is 48” x 30” x 29” high with straight legs, and has 4 No 64 chairs with British Green leather seat pads to complete the set. The current cost of a new set like this would be £1950. Our price for this set is £1200. It is very rare for us to be able to offer pre-owned furniture and it goes quickly, so please don’t delay if you are interested.
As ever we can deliver anywhere in Britain if required.

Well, I am back to full strength again and very happy to be back in the workshop full time. We have been busy making stocks of small gift items for the Craft Centre, which is open every day until Christmas day, 10am til 5pm. Our legendary coffee shop is open throughout this period.
As ever we are busy with our commissioned orders, I’ll update the site very soon. Our waiting list takes us up to Easter currently, so please consider this if you are thinking about ordering any larger items. We have made some new pieces for the showroom also, which will be on here in the next few days. As ever, feel free to give us a call if you would like to discuss a commission, 01298 84467.
