Julie and Con Ryan decided to take their experience of working with furniture and join together as Cribb & Hammer in 2014. Their expertise and experience is highlighted below:-
Con's 35 year carpentry and joinery career led him to restoring antique and contemporary furniture for customers. He focuses on repairing and restoring furniture, windows and doors, also designing and building bespoke storage solutions. He has an in-depth knowledge of different types of wood and different finishing techniques.
Julie is knowledgeable and experienced with furniture - particularly colour, paints and paint effects. Her past career in floristry and gift shop retail mixes well with her love of interiors, colour, fabric and paint. She loves to share this practical knowledge by advising customers and through teaching painting furniture workshops.
Together they've collected many furniture pieces in the UK and across Europe on trips abroad - some of the pieces are hard to part with!
