Ambrose’s workshop is nestled in the Ancient Stannary town of Ashburton, within Dartmoor National Park. He uses a portable sawmill, which allows him to source 100% of the wood locally. This local sourcing of the material is an important part of his furniture making. His appreciation of traditional techniques, such as steam bending and shave horse workings are evident in his work. The hand-tooled finishes add a human warmth to the furniture, which a machine finish lacks.
