Maker's bio

I moved up to Yorkshire in 2023 to be closer to family, after over a decade of making furniture and teaching woodworking classes for adults at my workshop in Islington, North London. My new space has the same feel – it's a real, professional woodworking workshop where I make my own furniture and commissions in an environment full of my own random woodworking curiosities. Ever seen a Japanese grooving plane? 18th Century dovetail saw? What about a homemade belt sander? I look forward to welcoming you with plentiful tea, random anecdotes, and always good cheer.

Rob reviewed: Intro to Joinery Weekend in Yorkshire

"Tom is a talented woodworker, a natural teacher and just a nice bloke. The weekend course was full of facts, techniques and tips and would be ideal for someone wanting a kick-start into woodworking. Highly recommended. "

Tom Pearce reviewed: Oval Steam-bent Shaker boxes Evening Class in London

"This course was a great introduction to steam bending and also using some power tools. The boxes are useful and make great presents! Tom has a very deep and ongoing interest in woodworking and making things, so you pick a lot up from chatting and being shown various bits in the workshop, as well as from the actual course. It's also a great little venue, both the workshop and the urban farm it's part of. There's a shop just round the corner if you need a snack at some point during the evening."

David reviewed: Green woodworking and nature connection in the Malvern Hills

"One of the best weekends I have had for a while. Fantastic time in a magical location where we all had the opportunity to socialize with a group of avid wood enthusiasts and of course learn the basic craft of green woodwork. Tom’s know-how, expertise and teaching skill is beyond par, not to mention Ida’s spiritual and woodland education that together provided an holistic experience. Food, which included 3 meals a day, far exceeded anyone’s expectations allowing some “glamping” notion to the experience. Highly recommended for those who wish to get out of the rat race for a few days and gain some skills which can then be used anywhere. Thank you Tom, Ida and the hospitality team."

Jamie reviewed: Green woodworking and nature connection in the Malvern Hills

"Absolutely amazing weekend, worth putting yourself in a group of strangers and totally immersing yourself in the experience. The woods was beautiful. The camping spot was away from where we spend out time eating and chopping wood and carving. There was a teepee which was for breakfast and a general chillout area near where we camped. Tom is very knowledgeable and patient, an all round great teacher and had clearly put a lot of time, effort and energy into making sure we had the best possible experience. The food was phenomenal and in abundance, kindly prepared and brought to us by Tom's friends who own the woodland. 10/10 and highly recommended."
