I'm available for commission and would be more than happy to discuss any projects you had in mind however big or small.
If you have a specific idea that you want to realise, I can help you with that, or if you want someone else to create an original idea to fit in with or contrast to what you already have I can help with that too.
I like to make the process interesting, confidence inspiring and fun for everyone involved and am good at communicating ideas. I also like to keep clients updated on progress via photographs and sometimes video. I feel it is important that the client is as involved in the whole process as they'd like to be.
To communicate my ideas I use CAD software to give a visual representation of the idea, and even good old fashioned pencil sketches.
When working on a commission, I will meet the client to discuss what they have in mind and following that will work on designs and ideas before presenting these back. Once the client is happy with the designs and we have a firm idea of what is going to happen, I will make detailed working drawings and get on to sourcing all required materials and at that stage would ask that the client funds these.
When the work is completed and the client is happy, I would then ask for final settlement.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch for a chat about your needs.
"As a creative agency, we were looking for a bespoke table for our meeting room. We wanted it to spark conversation and also have a homely feel that fitted with our brand. Oliver came along, full of ideas and inspiration, and turned our dream into a reality. From producing highly accurate CAD drawings through to the final, individual touches, every detail was well thought out and you can really tell his work is a labour of love. The table is a conversation-starter with many people and takes pride of place in our new office.”

"We started with a list of things we wanted to store in our custom-made cupboard, and a few ideas about what it should look like.
Oli listened, understood what we needed, and turned our ideas into a practical set of designs.
We really liked the fact that Oli shared concept designs online, and we were very impressed by the detailed breakdown he supplied with the quote.
We knew exactly what to expect.
Most important of all, Oli delivered a beautiful finished product that does exactly what we want.
It's a pleasure to use and a pleasure to look at.

'Oli works with a real attention to detail but also very efficiently. His designs are beautiful but he also listened and responded to what we wanted and produced a miniature model beforehand to check we were happy. The craftsmanship is amazing and the finished pieces are like pieces of art but at the same time fully functional. We couldn’t recommend him highly enough!'
Jo and Kip - Project - Oak & Cherry banister rails and Oak and copper bookcase
‘Absolutely delighted with our new shelves and cupboards. Oli designed a bespoke solution which was much better than the idea we took to him! They look like they really belong in the space. Oli was quick, efficient and considerate throughout the construction. Can’t recommend highly enough’
Pete W - Project - Two fitted alcove units with arched door detail and led lighting
'Oli worked exactly to time and budget and provided us with two eminently useful, hand crafted wardrobes.
The range of designs he provided in advance together with his advice were invaluable in coming to a decision and the 2 wardrobes exactly embody our requirements. '
