Hello, my name is David Haugh. I will approach your project with experience and passion to produce furniture you will be proud of.
I started making small pieces of jewellery and furniture when I re-trained at Goldsmith’s college in London in the early 1980’s. This led me to teach ‘Craft Design & Technology’ to secondary school students in Tunbridge Wells. As my confidence grew, I began to feel happiest making and designing more elaborate pieces of furniture, for which I needed more space and of course some proper wood working machinery.
In the earliest years of my journey, I learnt a lot about how timber moves and reacts and how to work it with modern machinery. I beavered away and hatched plans to start my own business in the basement of my Victorian semi detached house in the late 1980’s. My order books grew and I eventually left the basement, taking up the new challenge of a workshop premises in Bells Yew Green.
Working with wood, designing furniture, handling the raw timber and creating something beautiful sparked a passion. My interest in the manufacturing process, improving the techniques of production, has never left me. Designing and making furniture for kitchens, studies and bedrooms is where I have always wanted to be. Seeing the end result gives me great pleasure.
Sue, my partner and wife supported my drive to be in business and build my ‘dream’. Her organisational skills and background in administration sustained me. She is still an essential part of the business. She has developed a flair for colour co-ordination and offers advice on colour schemes. Sue also has expertise on appliances, advising customers about their features.
Both myself and Sue would love to meet you and discuss your project requirements whether you’re looking for a new complete kitchen or a single piece of handmade furniture, why not get in touch and arrange a time to have a chat.
