Cleft-oak furniture maker and woodcarver Adrian McCurdy on finding inspiration, his distinctive process, and dealing with the pressure of working slowly

April 13, 2018

Adrian produces beautiful work inspired by his studies of medieval furniture, natural phenomena and the interaction of light with surface and texture. We cover some great material including:

  • how he came to working with riven wood – a signature feature of his furniture
  • why he doesn’t get ‘stuck’
  • the importance of routine
  • making and adapting his own tools
  • and much more!
