Furniture Workshop
Who we are



Timber Foundry's humbled beginnings started in 2018, like many other businesses, from our back garden! Back then, James was working in a corporate role travelling extensively throughout the UK and Europe. The job was based around sales and design coupled with sustainable practices, which whilst extremely enjoyable didn't fulfil his true passion of creating furniture.
Having previously trained in joinery and carpentry, he dreamt of taking his current knowledge and transferring to his own business. Every weekend and free evening was spent immersing himself in new techniques and spending money on tools! He soon began producing bespoke items for family and friends from the 12x6ft family shed!

Our furniture is completely handmade from scratch at our workshop on the outskirts of the Peak District. We handpick every piece of timber from our local merchant who are fully regulated with the FSC and PEFC.

Sustainability Practices

When the industrial trend arrived, James teamed up with his brother Nick, a metal fabrication expert with 15 years commercial experience. Together they scoured the market to understand how this style could be designed, produced and made in a more sustainable way.


Whilst industrial furniture should be reminiscent of the era, they wanted to produce products in a more contemporary clean design that was finished meticulously and left to age with grace.

The Kingfish

James started Timber Foundry from his garden shed in 2018. ⁠⁠These days he can be found mainly in front of a computer, answering phone calls, and making an excellent instant black coffee! ⁠⁠His hobbies are climbing, running and generally anything outdoors with the family. ⁠⁠James will be with you throughout your Timber Foundry journey.⁠⁠


The General

Rich is the Workshop Manager at Timber Foundry and currently holds the world record of 3 planters in 2 hours! ⁠⁠After this fete, a defiant Rich, hands shaking and biceps burning, declared no human can beat him… The record still stands.⁠⁠His hobbies are walking and board game Tuesdays.


The Oracle

Josh is the youngest member of the Timber Foundry team, but don’t let that fool you. This guy can design you a piece of furniture quicker than Neo dodging a bullet. ⁠⁠He can also be found meeting clients dressed as Harry Potter. ⁠⁠His hobbies are Photography and Design.


Each piece is full of character and completely unique. All the wood is fully kiln dried before we get to work, ensuring the best long term stability. Sustainably sourced timber only!

We only use reclaimed, FSC or PEFC regulated timber from our local registered merchant


The metal is forged in the UK, something that is extremely important to us, and delivered locally from our family run supplier. They have been trading since 1889 and are still family owned under the 5th generation! Finally, the metal is cut, fabricated and powder coated for maximum durability.
