About Timothy Aze

Personalized Approach from Tim

Timothy is one of a select band of master craftsmen keeping the tradition of fine English woodcarving alive. Working from his studio in the Chilterns town of High Wycombe at the heart of England’s furniture making industry, Timothy has gained a reputation for combining meticulous precision with depth and feeling in his work. His work is a welcome return to superior qualities of style and originality not often seen in a world dominated by mass-produced mediocrity.

Years of Experience

He has over 25 years experience in woodcarving and furniture making and has been running his own business for the last 15 years. He takes great pleasure and care in all his work and always aims to give his clients the best service he can. The majority of his work comes from retuning clients, (some of which have been with him for 20 years) and family and friends they have recommended. New clients are always welcome, trade and private alike.

Highest Quality Guaranteed

The cost of owning an original masterpiece individually designed to complement the character of your home, a fabulous piece of bespoke furniture or some antique restoration could be less than you think. Contact Timothy today to discuss your ideas.
