Woodwork Dom - Driftwood and Greenwood Originals - Furniture Made in Cornwall

Living and working on the edge of a cliff in south Cornwall, with stunning views and many local windswept beaches, I have been collecting driftwood for over twenty years. I make a range of pieces, every one unique, including clocks, mirrors, chairs, cabinets, coffee tables, stools, Christmas trees, lamps and many more items. Also, large assemblages using beach plastic, mainly broken fishing bouys and small twiddly bits of driftwood!

Recently I've been learning greenwood chair making techniques using a shave horse and drawknife. This is a process I really enjoy. I have made some quirky chairs from ash with woven elm bark seats and various stools from oak, chestnut, beech, ash, sycamore - whatever I can lay my hands on!

Everything I make is obviously unique as no two pieces of wood are ever the same and I endeavour not to use a saw, preferring to leave the natural rounded edges caused by the wave action pummelling the wood along the coastline and then sand blasting it on a beach or shingle bar. I don't over-finish my work, preferring to leave the wood looking similar to how I found it, shaped by the sea and sometimes riddled with holes caused by marine borers, namely the wood piddock, Terrido worm and the gribble, all of whom help to make interesting driftwood.
