Peter Deij

In these times of mass production you could be forgiven for thinking that the skills Peter Deij possesses had already been lost for good. But he not only puts these skills to good use every day, making beautiful furniture for discerning clients, he also rescues them, sharing what he knows with his students.

His Designs

Peter’s furniture can be appreciated on many levels. The designs themselves are practical and elegant, relying heavily on the wood he has collected, and treasured (sometimes for years) to tell him which route to follow. Don’t miss an opportunity to see his work in the flesh. It’s a little cliché perhaps, but you have to touch it to believe it.

    Cabinets of Curiosity

    We are curious makers of things, things we dream up ourselves. Remarkable, useful, beautiful and original things. Sometimes they are made entirely by hand, sometimes partly by machine, in the future perhaps by robots. May be not robots. Always with an eye for detail and with an element of fun.

    If you care to follow this blog and join our journey, we’ll share our successes and (occasional) failures with you and hopefully you’ll become a frequent visitor. Suppose that depends on us keeping you entertained. So let’s get on with the words and pictures.

    Work in progress
