At Crazy Hare Design I create quality bespoke furniture from locally sourced Scottish and exotic hardwoods, I also offer gilding and handmade items as part of my repertoire.
My first ideas of making and considering a commercial market for my items came after a stint studying as a gamekeeper where you can see some of the inspiration for my work comes from. After deciding gamekeeping was not for me however I spent a brief stint working for a bar in Edinburgh on George street as a means to an end. I had decided to try my hand at blacksmithing and fell in love with aspect of making items and manipulating the material. The course was short but I knew I wanted to work with my hands and make it my career to make and sell items. I started my career as a carpenter and maker after graduating from the Chippendale International School of Furniture based near Haddington in east Lothian, Scotland. This is where I continue to rent a work space nearby.
Here at Crazy Hare Design I can memorialize hunting trips with gilded trophies in many different types of gold copper or silver. These will leave a lasting memory and make an impression wherever they may be mounted in the home. I can offer these pieces as home decor or for businesses. (if antlers are not provided these products are subject to availability)

I also offer handmade smaller items such as chessboards, cutting boards, wine racks and dress and utility knives. My knife range includes marking knives, letter openers, utility knives, and Sgian-Dubh's. I am open to any ideas should you decide to contact me.
My main focus at Crazy Hare Design is bespoke high quality furniture. Pieces can range from custom designed furniture to functional fitted furniture, as displayed in my work below.
