CRAFT CARPENTRY IN THE DERWENT VALLEY

Designer and maker using a range of timbers, new and reclaimed, to create stunning pieces, both individual and off the shelf.


IR8 BESPOKE

Pronounced 'I Rate Bespoke'

My father taught me the importance of quality control.  If I don't rate my work, no-one else will.  This was the idea behind my business name.  


If you also rate bespoke then I can help bring your ideas to life.  I take on all sorts of commissions but I'm not just about bespoke: I also make a range of off-the-shelf products and one-off upcycled pieces.  Wherever possible I use reclaimed and local wood.

MY MANTRA FOR WORK AND LIFE



I spent my childhood watching my father making all sorts of items around our home.  He was a welder and could create in almost any material he was given,  He taught me quality control and inspired the name of my business.







"Achieve one thing everyday"


My father / WFC



"Live for today, and plan for tomorrow"
