At Kevin Manville Design the process of recovering urban logs that I then mill and dry is only matched by the passion to be a maker of the highest quality craftsmanship. It gives me great joy to turn otherwise discarded logs into pieces that generations will commune at with family and friends.

The Tailor made series is a process of hand hammering wire and stitching it through a series of holes. This is a jointers technique that I have developed that uses no glue to join the two halves of a table together. Spending over twenty years as a traditional furniture maker has lead me to break the rules of tradition for innovation. Each table is completely unique and designed, based on the slabs that are chosen.
