We are Sorell, a small company designing and making handcrafted furniture and other bespoke carpentry projects. The business was set up in 2012 by cabinetmakers James Wright and David Buchanan-Dunlop and operates from workshops in the heart of Edinburgh. We seek to make beautifully crafted pieces of woodwork to the highest standards, designed to meet the individual aspirations of our clients.
Our work includes projects for both private and commercial clients, ranging from bespoke kitchens and free standing furniture to lighting and shop fit outs. We enjoy the challenge of designing bespoke projects and working with our clients to create designs that that will meet and hopefully surpass their expectations.
Woodwork is often thought of as at traditional craft, but we work with on open mind about how modern technology can enhance our craft, whilst still drawing on the time served skills that we have learnt working at the bench. So we are just as likely to be found programming a CNC machine as we are to be found using a hand plane to refine the fit of a drawer. The key for us is using the most appropriate technique to make the best quality work that will stand the test of time.
