Inspired by the honesty of the Arts and Crafts movement and the 1970s British crafts revival, Tim Wells uses traditional techniques of high quality construction with a contemporary twist on design, blending simplicity of form with function.

Tim Wells One-DrawerTim approaches his work in a unique way, by drawing on British joinery techniques and using honest materials to create new designs. One way he accomplishes this is by wrapping forms with leather. He uses renewable resources, including locally grown hardwoods, and his attention to detail and quality construction are precise. Tim completed a traditional five-year apprenticeship in the UK with John Makepeace. During that time he earned the Craft Certificate in Furniture from the City and Guilds of London Institute, with distinction in handmade furniture construction. After two years of perfecting his craft as a journeyman with Wendell Castle, Tim established himself as a master craftsman in the United States.
