A time served cabinet maker with more than 30 years' experience, Philip Bastow specialises in the design and craft of bespoke commissions using beautiful British hardwoods (whenever possible).

Philip is a true craftsman, taking great pride in every furniture project and following the ethos that 'a true artist doesn't make the wood into an object but sets the object free from inside of the wood'.
