About Me

I have over 15 years experience in cabinet making and I am passionate about what I do. I love creating bespoke pieces of work for people to enjoy in their homes.

 

Based Near Melton Mowbray

My workshop is close to Melton, so am in a great location to work in Leicestershire, Rutland, Nottinghamshire and I am happy to travel further afield.

 

History

I am from a farming family and have always had an interest in creating things using craftmenship. Having worked with a local cabinet maker for almost 10 years, I gained invaluable experience, achieved NVQ Level 2 in Handcrafted Furniture and obtained a wide knowledge of all types of woodwork. I established Chris Copley Furniture Ltd in 2011 and have enjoyed the challenge of running my own business on the family farm ever since. I now enjoy the luxury of living in the farm house next to my workshop, and have two young children who enjoy seeing the processes of the work.

 

Awards

In my first year trading, I was awarded a Melton Times Business Award, coming Highly Commended in the Best Rural Business category.

  

Ernest Cook

The workshop is situated on the Ernest Cook Trust estate, which currently owns and manages 22,000 acres of landed estates across five counties and is one of the UK's leading educational charities, rooted in the conservation and management of the countryside.
