Furniture Related Tools and Documents

In addition to furniture, we also hold an extensive collection of items related to furniture making. Woodworking and furniture making tools include those used by bodgers working in the Chilterns woods, as well as from local factories and workshops.

We hold a collection of miniature furniture, sample pieces and a collection of carving patterns. Our archive of documents and catalogues include those from companies such as Glenister, Parker Knoll, Skull, Birch, Bartlett, Ercol and Gomme, the makers of the G-Plan range.
