THE WORKSHOP

Nestled in the heart of the Dorset countryside, a home to craftsman since 1940

WOOD

Locally Sourced

I am passionate about using locally sourced wood. Dorset and its neighbouring counties have an abundance of beautiful species: English Walnut, Beech, Elm, Ash, Chestnut to name a few. By using wood that has been grown and milled in the local area, not only reduces Live Edge Living's carbon footprint but also supports other like-minded, dedicated businesses; another area which I am committed too.

Hello All,

I am originally from Essex but I have since journeyed down South to plant roots on the coast. A joiner by trade, I am now a self-employed craftsman who lives in the very heart of Dorset.  When I am not creating bespoke home furnishings or preparing stock for markets, I am putting out fires as a retained firefighter for my local station. 

Live Edge Living was born in 2019. A small idea soon developed when I took the leap of faith to commit to my passion of woodwork at the beginning of 2020. Charcuterie boards are my bread and butter and the artistry of creating unique and one off boards never gets old.

 

I am so lucky to do what I love. Beauty can be found in the simplicity of the wood grain. Nurturing larger slabs in order to create bespoke tables and worktops is my dream job. I also specialise in working with Epoxy Resin which merges rustic charm with a contemporary twist. Becoming an independent business and immersing myself in the local community has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. Collaborating with other like-minded businesses and supporting clients by helping their visions become a reality is incredibly rewarding. Whilst it has been a challenging and slightly unpredictable journey, I wouldn't have it any other way. 

Thank you for taking the time to visit my page and I look forward to working with you,

 

James

Expert Advice

Approachable and Honest

If a custom order is what you are looking for, then I believe the most important part of the journey starts with clear communication. The process starts with information gathering; product, wood, dimensions ect. Quite often, customers aren't too sure on the specifics - that is where I step in. I can show you the different types of wood available and we can discuss benefits of different species of wood. Furthermore, I can provide you with inspiration or research for specifics if it was something particular you had in mind. Sometimes, it is as simple as showing me a picture of what you want. Whatever it is you envision, I will endeavour to work alongside you; everyone has a budget and I will be sure to provide you with options that suit this.
