Chipperlane was originally founded in 2003 by Patrick Tierney
when he turned his lifelong love of furniture restoration into a professional service. Although it is still in development,Patrick
has turned Chipperlane into a consortium of associates that through their individual skills can produce many feats of
restoration in various guises.
Sapphirewoodcrafts was founded by David Brown in 2004.
David makes bespoke jewellery boxes to his own designs ,veneers them and creates his own marquetry and parquetry patterns.
Patrick and David collaborate on joint commissions where there is a particular need for both
their skills. For example if a broken table comes in, Patrick effects the repair while David assists with finishing and any
inlay work that may be required. Although at present we are the only occupants of our shops, we do have many associates who
work with us.
