Working from our rural workshop, located amongst the beautiful west-country landscape of South Somerset UK, Marc Wood is a creative designer-maker of beautiful, high quality furniture, cabinets, picture frames and mirrors; we use a mixture of reclaimed wood and sustainable natural timbers along with upcycled materials.
Marc has an art and design background and trained in Joinery to put his furniture design into practice, he is inspired by the design fusion of traditional rustic farmhouse style and a more contemporary sleekly modernist design.
This design concept can be seen in our use of chunky ‘slab’ timbers for our table tops and thick sided bookshelves and our feature of the classic angular ‘dovetail’ joint, which works as both a durable jointing technique and an attractive decoration for our cabinet doors.
The subtly curved corners of our cabinets combine with our signature ‘hidden’ integrated wooden handles for stylish modern simplicity with the mellow informality of natural wood.
Together with wife Rachel they run Marc Wood Joinery from their Somerset workshop situated within a complex of 18th Century farmland outbuildings shared amongst a lively local artisan community.
Our assistant Dom has trained in joinery and loves the outdoor life, one of his favourite duties is walking our lively Jack Russell ‘Marv’ in the afternoons; recently we have been joined by Mark and Rhian and they both bring new skills and enthusiasm to our small team and are an excellent sounding board for Marc’s latest designs.
This thriving small online business offers in house designs and custom made furniture for those who want high quality design and craftsmanship with a commitment to sustainability, minimising waste and re-using discarded materials.
We always try to source locally and use recycled packaging, we are always investigating how we can further reduce our use of plastics and energy; our long term plan is to install equipment to enable renewable energy at home and at our workshop.
Taking the leap to start Marc Wood Joinery just over five years ago has allowed them the flexibility to spend more time with their young son Arthur and an opportunity to explore the possibilities of eco living while making the best of their skills.
