Jon Doughty
Bespoke Furniture Maker

When designing furniture, I aim to combine elegance, simplicity and functionality, to allow the beauty of the wood to speak for itself, and use both modern and traditional woodworking techniques to produce something unique and personal which will give pleasure and satisfaction for a lifetime.

I began making furniture in 1996, following a family woodworking tradition, having previously worked as a joiner and narrowboat fitter. I moved with my wife and family to the Forest of Dean in 2003, and have found it inspiring to live and work in an area rich in both scenic beauty and historical importance as a source of excellent home-grown timber.
