The “art of cabinetmaking” is a time honoured trade that embodies all the hallmarks of fine craftsmanship and design.
Those hallmarks or corner stones of the more recently labelled “makers space” are essentially about design, creativity, innovation, complexity, utility and detail.
These skills are both practical and intellectual. They require the conscious marrying of hand and mind, planning and execution, which ultimately empower and nourish the soul.
