The Solid Oak Design journey began life as a passionate desire to create the right piece of high-quality furniture with excellent craftsmanship that is made to last. As a fully qualified carpenter with the world at my fingertips, I set out working the usual joinery jobs and learnt my trade in action, carving out a career for myself.
In my spare time, I focused on creating bespoke pieces of furniture for friends and family which I enjoyed doing. After a while, there was a lot of interest in my spare-time work, and I had to create more which lead to an increase of sales. Over the next couple of years, it expanded from a spare time money earner to growing into a fully equipped full-time workshop dedicated to my creations!
The first premises I worked from was an old barn in the picturesque village of Hooton Pagnell which the assistance of my friends and family who allowed me the use of the barn to start this new adventure. It was an exciting time for me, and after awhile business was booming, so it became clear that a more significant premises was due….and that’s when we found it. Our destination was set in the village of Sprotbrough, and an incredible choice it turned out to be! With a beautiful local area for inspirational views, we moved into our new workshop with double the size of our original space.
