Kim Farley-Harper - Woodwright & Property Restorer
based in Dinas Mawddwy, Mid-Wales
Welcome to my website!

I was born in 1952 in the Black Country, and I began working with wood at a very early age. I very quickly learnt that quality workmanship would advertise your work for you, and these are the values I hold today. My Uncle Edward was a master carpenter and he passed his endless knowledge on to a very willing apprentice. On the day that I started full-time work, he presented with my first set of "proper" carpentry tools, which I’m still using today.

I create a diverse range of commisioned items, such as the four beehives (pictured above) that I made for Fortnum & Masons. The beehives will be exhibited in the Fortnum’s show garden at this year's Chelsea Flower Show, and are due to be featured in the Daily Telegraph on April 7th, 2007. Other recent work has included barn conversions and horse-drawn wagons, with my next project being a two-wheeled trotting cart for a self sufficient community in Pembrokeshire.
