Made by Wiseman - Chris Wiseman Fine Furniture
Welcome to my portfolio. I am a fine woodworker that loves to design and make unique, high-end and hand-crafted pieces. My attention to small and hidden details is what separates my work from many others and I hope this is evident to you when you navigate my site.
My most notable piece to date, named ‘Oak Within’, is available for sale and won me my first award at the Celebration of Craftsmanship 2016. In fact it actually won two awards that day. The first and most prestigious was the ‘Alan Peters Award for Excellence’ (Now called the 'New Talent Award'). An award given to young makers that showed very high levels of craftsmanship and design. The second award was the ‘Best Use of British Timber Award’ of which it won gold! You can find out more about this piece in the portfolio tab above or scrolling below and clicking on 'For Sale'.
I trained alongside the acclaimed furniture makers at Waters & Acland in the beautiful English Lake District. Today they are known and respected world wide for pushing the boundaries of furniture making and passing their wealth of knowledge onto their students. It was there that I came to realise true craftsmanship at its highest level and its left a lasting impression on me.
It’s rare these days to own something that is truly hand-crafted and not part of the modern disposable culture. I am one of the few that create such items that will last a lifetime.
