Patrick makes contemporary hand crafted wooden home gifts. He is a self-taught woodworker and has developed and honed his collection over the years.

Patrick strives to capture the natural colour of the most exotic woods, providing a fabulous accent to his bespoke pieces. His work is stylish yet practical and gives a modern interpretation of traditional wooden items including butter knives, chopping boards, coasters, lighting and interiors.

In the workshop all day which is located in the middle of kildorrery village. I supply around 25 shops all over Ireland with product. If I’m not fulfilling orders then I’m probably at a commission which I love. I’m also showcasing my outdoor Adirondack furniture at the mallow home and garden festival for the fist time in May.

It’s never too late to take the plunge. Sometimes life gets in the way but eventually the time will be right to follow the dream.
