When I'm not playing guitar, I enjoy creating things from wood. I began making things for the home, but after some positive interest from friends and family, I now sell various handmade items via eBay. Below are examples of the items I'm currently making and selling. Please click on the photos for a closer look. If you see anything of interest, please get in touch via the contact page or visit my eBay and Amazon sales pages.

This is a folding chair for classical guitarists, which I made for my own use. Made from American oak and with an ergonomically designed seat and back rest, specifically for support when playing the guitar for long periods of time.

The chair has accompanied me to many gigs since and is very comfortable and supportive, particularly for the lower back.

This was my first major woodworking project. It was a learning process, particularly the upholstering, but the end result was everything I wanted.

The chair is not for sale and not currently available to order, due to high labour and material costs.
