Martin Urmston : Handwood Furniture
When asked at school which O levels I wanted to take top of my list was woodwork simply because I enjoyed it. An A level then a college diploma with City and Guilds from High Wycombe College ( now Bucks Uni.) followed. After 7 years the luxury of life as a student finished I however continued woodworking practicing and honing my skills. The desire to design and make my own furniture professionally never diminished and in May 2008 I took the plunge. I now spend my days in a converted stable block pursuing my vocation.
Trees are truly beautiful things and wood is a wonderous natural material taking decades to grow. Each piece that I make I view as an opportunity to create an object of beauty that can be treasured for generations.
