Rowood Handmade Kitchens and Joinery

divider

At Rowood Ltd, we have over 25 years’ experience in the design and manufacture of beautiful bespoke kitchens and hand crafted furniture from our workshop in the heart of the Cotswolds. We pride ourselves on being one of a select number of companies who still work to the traditional values of well made British products. So proud that every piece of furniture is guaranteed for life and individually signed by the craftsman who made it.

From an apprenticeship working on Rolls Royce and Bentley cars, to running arguably, one of the finest joinery companies in the Cotswolds. Nick Rowland, owner of Rowood Ltd, explains the challenges and successes he has seen running a woodwork company over the past 25 years!

Finding my drive

Having left school back in the late 90’s with no clear direction into what to do next, I decided to accept an apprenticeship working locally working on Rolls Royce and Bentley cars. A decision which would later see me turn my labour of love into becoming the proud owner of my own successful joinery and woodworking company, of which I’m proud of to this day.

Working on pre World War II, timber framed Rolls Royce and Bentley cars was fantastic for a young lad starting out. And under the close supervision of my mentor I soon became a wood turner, transforming logs of wood into the highest quality, bespoke veneers, dashboards and interiors. The skills I gained and knowledge of woodturning techniques gave me such a great start in life. The passion for creating one-off woodwork pieces had begun...

Drawing strength from the thriving Cotswolds community

Rowood Ltd has now been trading for over 20 years, operating in the heart of the Cotswolds amongst a thriving business community. We rebranded in 2016, and took a big step forward for the company and moved into our purpose built workshop in Brize Norton. Our team is growing from strength to strength, each of us has a sense of pride in our work which is why we now individually sign our kitchens and furniture pieces to reflect this. The testimonials we receive installs faith, we’ve got this right. In a digital world where kitchens & furniture can be purchased in the click of a button, there is still a need for a personable, bespoke woodworking business where expectations are exceeded.

Variety is the spice of life

In the world of joinery and woodworking, there’s no such word as “No”. Our main work is creating beautiful kitchens for homes or trade clients, however we have made everything from bespoke wine cellar storage, unique home libraries, stately home pagodas, security gates, swimming pool and outhouses woodwork etc. We put our creative heads together to make some fantastic designs, on a regular basis. I personally get very excited when a new kitchen commission comes in. For me it’s the heart of any home and with clients choosing new and innovative storage solutions, it keeps us very busy.

James Haskell

Unreconstructed Male

Former rugby union player, author, music producer, podcast personality and 2019 Jungle contestant, James Haskell is clearly a man with fingers in many pies. I got in touch to discuss his second book Ruck Me, I’ve Written Another Book, but couldn’t resist touching on a few clearly controversial topics…
