After 22 years working in the City of London, Geoffrey Rowe decided it was time to change direction and follow instead his long term passion for working with wood. His father was a carpenter, and even while working in the financial markets, Geoffrey continued to develop his skills.
Becoming a true craftsman takes time, determination – and a talented teacher. Geoffrey trained in Fine Furniture Making and Antique Restoration under John Lloyd of ‘Furniture and Cabinet Making’ fame.
He now runs his own furniture making workshop in North Mymms, Hertfordshire, and specialises in commissioned pieces of individually designed and hand crafted fine furniture.
His fine furniture designs range from stand alone pieces to fully fitted furniture, cutting edge and contemporary work through to traditionally styled period pieces to suit the needs of his clients.
Geoffrey also runs furniture making tuition for others wanting to learn to make their own fine furniture and start their own cabinet making business.
Geoffrey hosts a one day seminar designed to help individuals decide whether to start their own furniture making business.
