John Lloyd Fine Furniture

Fine Furniture & Cabinet Maker (inc.Tuition)

John Lloyd is a long standing customer of ours, and as such we have a little bit of an insight into what he does with wood.

John is highly esteemed in his industry, with a style and a range of beautiful furniture of his own. In addition to the new pieces he is commissioned to make, he’s a very well known furniture restorer. Sought after by national institutions and private individuals alike, commissioned to work on priceless antiques and treasures.

His day to day work includes tuition at his workshops on Ditchling Common in East Sussex where he takes small groups of private students for intensive and long term furniture making courses where he gladly passes what he knows to those who are keen to learn.

It’s both reassuring and refreshing that John’s teaching ethos is built on traditional, hands-on skill whilst embracing innovation and new technology. This makes for an exciting and thorough foundation to build a new career and craft on. We’re quite jealous!

You don’t have to be one of his students to get the  benefit of John’s knowledge and enthusiasm though. He’s generous enough to share his knowledge and experience on wood, woodworking & design in his many writings on the subject too.

You can find John’s articles in British Woodworking magazine and Furniture & Cabinetmaking magazine.
