    Established from the foundations of Jack Chippendale's famous 'Chippendale Craft' wooden boat company, of over 60 years ago, we have extended Chippendale's range to include not only hand-made wooden boats, but also

bespoke cabinetry, specialist woodcraft commissions and unique furniture design.




We combine the aesthetics, durability and functionality that come with a strong heritage in wooden boat building

and traditional craftsmanship and take great pride in creating beautiful pieces of unique design.


This heritage means we are well placed to offer personalised and handmade woodcraft,

rarely found in today's market of mass - production.  As such we are able to offer our customers a service which is

bespoke and which exactly meets their requirements.


Our woodcraft workshop, which sits directly on the banks of the river Brede, in the

historic Cinque port town of Rye,  East Sussex is perfectly positioned and we welcome customers to visit us if they

wish to discuss or view any pieces they are considering.
