Britain's greatest furniture maker at work at his world-famous workshop

John Makepeace OBE designs some of the most expensive furniture money can buy -with a pair of his black oak and holly marquetry cabinets selling at £90,000. The 78-year-old master has given exclusive access to never before seen photos of his workshop and school as The Parnham Trust celebrates 40 years of excellence. The Queen's nephew and 18th in line to the throne Lord Snowden was among hundreds of former students who paid tribute to the world-famous designer. Many of Mr Makepeace's alumni are high end designers who have gone on to work on the 787 dreamliner, luxury yachts, John Lewis and Daimler after being taught by top craftsmen at his exclusive academy.

How to Make a Chair

The Bow Spring Chair was designed and fabricated as part of a furniture making workshop at Harvard and MIT. I was interested in how the arms and legs of the chair could work in unison as a type of double bow spring structure – becoming extremely strong under direct loading, yet flexible and responsive to the shifting load of the user. The legs/arms of the chair are made from steam bent, glue laminated strips of ash, and the seat is made from glue laminated birch plywood. Throughout the semester I employed many different techniques of fabrication from hand files to CNC lathes. Instagram: Website: Blog: Pinterest: Facebook: Twitter:
