Our Furniture Maker Mike Storey and the Collectors Chair features in The Times today (Scottish Edition).
“Angus Ross, an established woodworker with a studio based in Perthshire, has shown clients globally that Scottish wood is inherently durable. His material comes from an ancient woodland that he co-owns, and is ethically managed, on the banks of the River Tay. Wood in Ross’s cabinets and credenza is bent and folded using traditional steaming techniques what is acknowledged as a kind of timber sorcery. He has also been appointed as a mentor for the Crafts Council, a body that promotes makers across the UK.”
