After a 27 year career in sales, Tim relocated from Buckinghamshire to West Dorset and decided it was time to do something new. He joined the 12 week course to learn woodworking skills and open his own workshop from which he could make and sell furniture under the name “Made from Trees”. Tim speaks five different languages, enjoys horticulture, railway modelling and marquetry. He added beautiful marquetry detail to his level 3 cabinet assessment piece and first commission after graduating the course was a free-standing shoe and coat rack. His beautiful marquetry boxes are sold by shops and Tim will make bespoke pieces to order.
