Mark Ellison

Living and working in the Yorkshire Dales for over 30 years, he has been focusing on woodworking since 2005.

With a Higher National Dipolma in design and making furniture, he enjoys applying that discipline to box work as well as small, bespoke, free-standing pieces and built-ins.

He prefers to use British hardwoods, sourced either locally or from a family farm in the Scottish Borders; their features of grain, colour and texture inform his work design.

Materials are sourced responsibly. That will often include rescuing wood from the fate of biomass or re-purposing antiques broken beyond repair
