Welcome to Vooght-Cathrew, designer-maker of handmade fine furniture and contemporary clocks. We select wonderful British timbers, sustainably sourced with provenance (we usually know the exact estate each piece of timber has come from) and use them in our elegant designs.
By buying from us, you are helping keep traditional heritage craft skills alive. Indeed, clock case making is now a rare craft in the UK. You can find out more about endangered heritage crafts from The Heritage Crafts Association: http://heritagecrafts.org.uk/redlist/.
We have our own designs for clocks and furniture, but we love working with you to input into any designs, allowing you to personalise them to your style and create pieces you can pass down the generations of your family.
Our workshop is situated in the middle of the UK in Nottingham. You are encouraged to visit and see the exact piece being made for you. This means we can talk through why we’ve chosen the pieces of wood we have for each component. It’s all about creating strong, flowing pieces enhanced by the beautiful grain of the wood.
