In the summer holidays spent with his grandparents, David's grandfather taught him
how to turn and carve. During these holidays the young David learnt a great deal about
wood and working it, and as he puts it himself, "the excitement of tree to furniture".
Such was his enthusiasm that when his grandfather died, David was fortunate enough to inherit all his tools - saws, planes and
chisels - and his woodworking career had truly begun.
Initially working from a room in his parents' house in Matlock Bath, David set to work making carvings during the
evenings after he came home from a long day's working on the farm.
By 1978 he had refurbished a large workshop and began making kitchens, doors, windows and stairs - and,
of course, furniture. As David's skill and flair developed and his reputation grew, the order books swelled
sufficiently to enable him to dedicate his
time to the profession he enjoyed most - working with wood. Years of problem solving through carefully considered
design, expert multi-tasking and thorough understanding of materials have now brought recognition for David in the
form of numerous commissions for heritage restoration work for listed buildings and those in conservation areas.
