Christopher Hall

Christopher Hall, The Gentleman Joiner, is a Master Carpenter with over 40 years' experience specialising in designing and making bespoke handmade furniture and fine joinery for the discerning residential market, and with this experience he also provides a product evaluation consultancy service to the hand and power tool industry in the development of new tools and products.

Classically trained in the craft of furniture making and joinery he is renowned for his uncompromising traditional craftsmanship and eye for detail, rarely found in today's 'instant' society. It is, indeed, a pleasure to see perfectly constructed and fitting joinery, which not only further enhances the appearance of the finished piece but also confirms its integrity.

Woodworking courses

Christopher holds courses in his clean well equipped modern workshop located near Guildford in Surrey, where driven by enthusiasm, he is keen to pass on the knowledge gained over the last forty years for the benefit of all home woodworkers interested in the correct approach to the craft of woodworking. He holds woodworking courses in Handtools, Powertools, Kreg Joinery and a One-to-One course which can either be for a single day or 2/3 days with overnight accomodation available, if required, at a small extra charge.

Furniture Repairs

There are occasions when a treasured family heirloom or loose joints on a chair or table need repairing or repolishing with the same exacting care as making something new, but still maintaining the patina of age. Dining chairs often suffer with loose joints and should be repaired as soon as possible to avoid more serious and costly repairs in the future. The majority of repairs can be completed within one week.
