Welcome to the blog. First off i'd better introduce myself, i'm Joe i run avie & oak. I design and make all the furniture you can see here myself. I've been making furniture for many years now and everyday my passion for the craft grows. I love the process of taking a concept working through the design and then setting to work in the workshop bringing it to life. I'm also incredibly passionate about the materials i use namely wood. Wood has so many benefits in being used for furniture making, its natural beauty, its diverse colours and textures across different species, its strength, and its incredibly environmentally friendly and sustainable.
I'll be trying my best to post regularly on here about the day to day workings of my furniture making, as well as the odd tip and trick I've picked up along the way. So if you're interested in woodwork, or would just like to know a little more about how furniture is made then stay tuned.
