Backgammon sets are made by me to my own design using hand tools wherever practicable applying traditional methods. Corner joints are box or finger design. Combining complimentary woods and veneers creates the final look. Finishes are a mixture of oils, waxes and shellac which is French Polished to a high shine where appropriate.

All my pieces are designed and created in my workshop in Sussex England overlooking the rolling Sussex Downs which are a great source of inspiration.
Material is carefully selected for its suitability and cut and hand planed.
All final working performed by hand as are applying the final finishes such as oil, French polish and waxes. This ensures the desired final quality is achieved.
With such a high degree of hand working some minor variances can occur which add further character to the piece and set it apart from the mass produced.
