A heritage of craftsmanship

A heritage of craftsmanship

Clive Durose began his interest in woodwork after leaving school at 16. A hobby of woodturning became an obsession which saw him develop into a Master Craftsman. At 18 years old Clive started his business, Clive Durose Woodturners, providing woodturning services to Joinery and Furniture customers. Specializing in stair parts, he continued to expand his knowledge of woodworking. In those formative years, he trained apprentices in the skills he had acquired. Incorporated in 1988, and over the next few years, Clive won awards for business and innovation. Not content to rely solely upon traditional skills, he acquired and learned how to use high tech CNC machinery to reproduce intricate shapes time and time again. Underpinning the use of modern processes with time served knowledge helped maintained the quality and integrity of his products.

40 years on, and with the same passion for all things wood, his team of Craftsmen produce a broad range of stair spindles, handrails, newel posts and other staircase related products. Many of these are made to popular patterns. Unique, one off and bespoke items are also carefully produced.

Engrained within our culture, is a genuine concern for where our wood comes from. Making a contribution to the environment’s plight, the company has acquired and maintained FSC and PEFC certification. Responsible sourcing of materials are necessities of the woodworking trade, as are the careful utilization of wood and the recycling of wood waste. In 2023 a large investment was made in highly efficient energy saving equipment to reduce the power consumption and carbon footprint of our workshops, saving tons of carbon each year.
