From an early age, I've loved making things. My dad was a Master Carpenter, as were many in our skilled family. When I was young, I was hardly ever out of someone's shed or workshop cutting up bits of wood and trying to fix them together.
My journey started with a four-year apprenticeship and on into the professional world of carpentry and joinery. I earnt a reputation for high-quality craftsmanship and attention to detail.
Out of my passion for creative carpentry came
" Andy Daines Artwork" which is based in the South East of England.
My work can be best described as "Nature-inspired Art", a blended form of Art and Carpentry.
Each piece is unique and has a contemporary style to it.
The panels are made of laminated solid timbers, birch plywood and timber veneers, which are glued together. These are carefully shaped, carved and sanded to a smooth touch revealing the grain and character. It is all handmade and finished with oil or wax to enhance the natural beauty of the wood.
I am happy to create custom pieces just right for your space.
