Woodwork

 

Garth Reynolds Woodware

Garth inherited the Ludlow-based family business from his father, Arthur Reynolds, who founded Reynolds Woodware in 1946. The company employed fifteen local craftsmen and produced high quality, hand-made furniture, inspired by the Arts & Crafts movement. Reynolds furniture is now highly sought after. Garth retired from the business in 1980, but continues to exercise his cabinet-making skills, producing beautiful, individually crafted chairs and boxes in a variety of hard and soft woods.
