Round Top Stool

The workshop of woodworker Ambrose Vevers is tucked away on a peaceful apple orchard in Ashburton, Devon. His practical yet contemporary pieces for the kitchen employ hand carpentry skills, and his stools and chairs are constructed using traditional furniture making techniques such as steam bending and spokeshaving. Predominantly using ash, cherry, oak and walnut, Ambrose works into each piece patiently by hand, and scorches the surfaces of his pieces using the Japanese Shou Sugi Ban technique. He sources his timber locally from nearby woodlands, or, more often than not, it is felled and coppiced from the same very land he lives and works on.

A solar-powered, timber-framed barn is used by Ambrose for large scale projects and for teaching furniture making workshops. The solar panels help to power his machinery, whilst proposing limits to the methods he can use. It is these limitations that characterise each piece with a modest and rich quality, unique to the handmade.

"It really feels good to know exactly where each piece of wood was grown, even though the process takes a really long time."
