Modern Rustic Handmade Furniture and Home Decor
I started The Dancing Woodman in March 2018 and I enjoy making handmade modern rustic, industrial looking furniture using recycled wood. I initially started this as a hobby alongside full time work, a 12 year career in Fashion Retail Management.
The passion for this got the better of me, as I love what I do so I decided to take the jump and do this full time as a career from January 2020.
Since then the business has grown, moving from my shed and now into my second workshop in the space of 6 months, shipping all over the UK and internationally including the US. I now have a growing team of 4, who are all as passionate about this as I am.
My aim is to make quality, individual rustic looking pieces that make a statement in your home. All timber is locally sourced and recycled. All items are handmade by us from our workshop in Southampton
The reason for the name is that I used to have a habit of busting a few “moves” whilst making furniture with my headphones in when I started this out in my back garden. Truth is, I cannot dance.
Please message us for bespoke, made to measure items that you would like. We are always looking for a new challenge so if you have an idea that you would like me to make then please feel free to contact.
The time we need to prepare an order for shipping varies. For details, see individual item or contact us 🕺🏼
Different leg variations are available.
My pieces feature the timbers original characteristics, adding to the rustic feel.
All of my furniture is made from 100% reclaimed wood sourced locally in Southampton.
All my pieces are finished with two coats of Osmo oil or stain.
Pieces can be customized to your needs. Just ask!
I’d been after a bath board for a while and saw that Aaron made these. However, I asked if he could tailor one to hold a Kindle or book and also cater for a wine glass! Aaron hadn’t done one like this before but was very happy to give it a go. He kept me up to date with timings from point of order to finish. I am absolutely thrilled with the finished article. I really enjoyed my relaxing bath, reading my book and of course utilising the wine holder!
Great table and looks amazing in our living room! Loved the way we could customise the size for the perfect fit. Great communication with Aaron and when an issue arose it was dealt with very professionally with ease! Would highly recommend!
After spending ages trying to find what I wanted in the high street, I stumbled across the dancing woodman on Instagram. He could make me exactly what I wanted, in the finish that I wanted and at a fraction of the price of similar high street ones. Beautiful bath caddy, that finishes off our bathroom perfectly. Great communication and fast delivery.

Aaron created us the perfect battle station! We couldn’t be happier. Service that Aaron gave us was immaculate. We were also honoured to be his first international customers! Keep up the good work. 🙂
Beautiful desk and a unique piece of furniture. Very happy and seller kept me updated on all aspects of delivery and time frames.
