Beautiful home décor hand crafted by the Chippendales

Dovetail Joinery was formed 15 years ago by brothers John and James Chippendale. Their skills have been inherited form their father who worked all his life in a local joinery company. The smell of sawdust is practically in the Chippendale brothers’ DNA.

Growing up they helped their dad, through the holidays by loading up the van with wood form the timber yard and supporting him by doing all those useful jobs like making tea and cutting wood etc. And over the years they gradually stepped up to doing more of the important work.

A typical family business means that even though their dad is now retired, they still ask his advice about the more traditional side of creating beautifully crafted pieces of furniture for their valued clientele. There really is no substitute for years of experience.
