Oliver Sparks

Fine tools for working wood

Welcome. My name is Oliver and I make fine tools for working wood.

Or at least I do in my spare time. For the most part my education, experience and full time employment can be summed up in two words - cabinet making.

For something that started as a means to an end, toolmaking has now become a big part of my life. This is good; it fits well with my almost insatiable desire to create. I enjoy working on a piece of my own design equally as exact period reproductions, though my softest spot is re-working overlooked gems.

Quality is everything.

If you would like to get in touch to place an order, inquire about a commission or just to talk shop, please drop me a line, I will get back to you as soon as I can. Thanks.
