Peter Young

Divergent Designs

Peter is a craftsman who is dedicated to excellence. From hand-cut dovetails to a glowing finish, every detail is important. Peter designs and builds furniture which will still be in use and valued in 200 years time. His philosophy is in keeping with an emerging trend to have fewer but better quality pieces of furniture in our homes, made by local craftsmen using renewable local resources.

Peter worked for many years as a research scientist but has now returned to his first passion for making quality furniture using traditional methods. He has trained in Australia, Canada and the USA to develop a wide range of technical skills which he brings to each handcrafted piece.
