Meet Dylan Russell
Dylan Russell is a wood craftsman from Auckland, New Zealand.
He learnt his trade building boats, an industry that requires an understanding of the different materials use, precision measurements and complete attention to detail.
After relocating to a Cotswold cottage in 2000 and working on his own home, Dylan recognised the unique challenges of building kitchens and cabinets in older buildings.
He transferred his skills to designing, building and fitting handmade wooden furniture.
Dylan has built kitchens, larders and libraries as well as designing and producing one-off pieces including wardrobes, cupboards and bathroom furniture.
