About The Dancing Woodman

I started The Dancing Woodman in the beginning of 2018 as I really wanted a rustic TV unit and thought I could have a go at making one myself. Armed with just a Black and Decker palm sander at the time I set about the task! I really enjoyed making it and after the posting it on my own social media and receiving a lot of positive comments, I thought I would make more things, and it progressed from there…

I initially started this as a hobby alongside full time work, a 12 year career in retail management. Making things in my garden shed when I had the time!

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 the shed and now into my second workshop in the space of 6 months, shipping all over the UK and internationally including the US. My workshop is located in Botley, just outside of Southampton, UK

I make a variety of pieces from desks, tables, benches, coffee tables to small items such as bath caddies and trays. I make unique custom pieces too and specialise in rustic pieces from materials that are reclaimed and locally sourced. I like to ensure that each item of furniture that I make is as individual as the next and no two pieces are the same, giving a sense of strong uniqueness

Please message me for bespoke, made to measure items that you would like. I’m 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 I need to prepare an order for shipping varies. For details, see individual item or contact us 🕺🏼
