Toby Philips – Class of May 2014

toby phillips furniture 2 2017

After gaining an Anthropology degree Toby spent some time working on his home.  He found that he loved working with his hands. He decided to pursue a career in woodworking, with an aim to starting his own business.  Toby completed the 12 week course in the summer of 2014 and is now working as a freelance furniture maker/carpenter.  Showing great dedication Toby works from his home in North London, using his living room and garden as a makeshift workshop which gets tidied up at the end of the day.  Toby says “It’s a lot of work but it’s really enjoyable. It’s taken a couple of years to build up to earning a living from it but I’m getting there!”  There are pictures of his work at tobyphillipsfurniture.tumblr.com
