Bespoke Hand Made Furniture from the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire.

Welcome to my website. I design and make hand made bespoke furniture from my workshop in the Forest of Dean. All my designs are original and hand made.

2021 marks my 41st anniversary of making bespoke furniture across the Monmouth, Chepstow, Wye Valley, Forest of Dean and Gloucestershire areas.

Due to a health issue, I am currently taking some time out and will not be accepting any orders, but hope to be back in the workshop by Spring of 2021. I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Click on the buttons at the top of this page to see all the website pages and on any of the pictures across the site, including the slideshow above, for full sized pictures and descriptions. While Im taking a break, the pictures will give a good idea of the design possibilities and quality of my work.

Getting Started

I do my best to guide you through the whole process of commissioning bespoke furniture and help whenever I can. For more details of the design process and how to get started with a commission, please have a look at the Design & Consultancy page. For more details about timber and the technical details of how furniture is made, etc., have a look at the Materials, Finishes & Prices page and to see pictures of my work, have a look at the Galleries.

Why Bespoke?

Value for money. There is a lot of mass-market furniture available at very low prices, often made in distant counties where labour costs are a lot lower. But when you want something that shows your own unique style, fits into that awkward space, blends in with your home and will last indefinitely if you take care of it, then a piece of genuine bespoke furniture, will give you better value for money in the long run.

Contact

Please have a look through the web pages and the Galleries. The Before and After Gallery is particularly interesting. Telephone and email details can be found on the Contact Us page.

New for 2020 - Acoustic guitars

After over 50 years of playing guitars, I thought it was time to make one, so in 2015 I made my first acoustic guitar. It was a lot more difficult than I thought, as a guitar has to sound great, play great and look great, so there is nowhere to hide if you make a mistake! I had to learn a whole new set of skills, but it was worth it in the end. There are more pictures of it in the Furniture and Instrument Gallery

I am now making another guitar, which will become part of a guitar range that can be made to order.

You can also follow the journey of the first 'Dreadnought' size guitar being made on my Facebook page. Click on the facebook link below, sign in and then search for 'David Snowdon Furniture'. Click on the 'David Snowdon Furniture' link if needed (it can be very confusing!) and then hopefully scroll down to the guitar pictures. Visit us on Facebook
