Finbarr Lucas

Finbarr Lucas and Hazel Drummond transform local hardwoods and reclaimed timber into chairs and tables, cabinets, display cases and shelving, as well as smaller items.

I trained in Fine Art at Sheffield Hallam University more than 20 years ago, making wooden sculptures as part of my final show. After graduating, I started prototyping sculptural shelves and tables using a laminating process I had employed on the course, and I showed the results to shops and galleries.

I have now been working as a self-employed furniture-maker for 16 years. My interests have broadened out from the sculptural work I began making to include a passion for the material itself. I source timber locally whenever I can, and I have become known for my use of local beech, ash and other hardwoods, as well as reclaimed timber, to make a huge range of cabinetry and other furniture.

Hazel Drummond joined the business in 2009, after training at the Women’s Furniture-Making course at Castle College.
