Cornish Story

How did the Cornish Cabinet & Joinery Co begin?

We are a family business spanning two generations, incorporating highly specialised craftsmanship and an in depth design process. We are strong believers in heritage and tradition, knowledge and skills being passed down and refined throughout history. 

About Us

With over 40 years experience, we use traditional woodworking machines and methods to hand make each project to give the client an exclusive product made to the highest standard.

We believe that anything British Made is something to be proud of which is why we source all of our materials carefully and we are proud to put our name on everything that we produce. Based in the historic Roundhouse in Par, built in 1874 and designed by Sir Samuel Morton Peto, we feel a part of Cornish history and can proudly say that our furniture is hand crafted in Cornwall.

Inspired not just by a love of bespoke furniture but also of our native county of Cornwall, you’ll see the beautiful and rare Red-Billed Chough is our logo. This iconic local bird is a fine representation of our ethics which involve using UK-sourced materials where possible; indeed, 95% of the raw material we use is from the UK.

We see such commitment as not only satisfying our customers by providing them with the best quality furniture, but also helping the local economy and, in using sustainable wood, doing our bit for the ecology.

St Blazey Roundhouse

We are also lovers of history, especially that of the local area, and are proud to be the current custodians of the building we operate from – St Blazey Roundhouse. We chose this location as it carries with it a rich industrial history as an engine shed and is now an example of a truly British manufacturing company, something we are very proud to be able to claim.

The Roundhouse is the perfect place to house our traditional woodworking machinery such as our Leicester-built cast iron Wadkin machines, and while we combine traditional working methods with modern woodworking techniques, we feel the character added by our commitment to these wonderful, and now little-used machines is part and parcel of the Cornish Cabinet & Joinery Co.

The only materials we source from abroad are the high-quality metal fittings that come from a top supplier in Germany, and we are very proud of the fact that 95% of the products we sell are conceived, designed and made here. Our ecologically sound credentials are boosted by a clever system that collects and compacts all the wood dust and creates briquettes, which can be used on wood-burning fires and for other purposes.

How We Operate

Our Design Process

We have over 40 years of experience in crafting beautiful fitted wardrobes and kitchens, in that time we have sharpened and refined our design process to make it an enjoyable and effective process. 

Concept

We like to open the conversation with likes and dislikes, it is important to start off on the same page when it comes to themes and styles.

Design

Using a combination of product samples with 3D Cad software we take inspiration from the brief set at the concept stage to build a design together with our clients. We offer guidance on the best internal configurations to meet your needs as well as stylistic advice. Our knowledge of fitted furniture proves to be key in the design phase to achieve the look and functionality you desire.

Manufacture

Once a design is finalised we begin production and provide you with a timeline for completion. Our workshop is outfitted with both accurate computerised machinery and traditional woodworking machinery which is what gives our furniture it’s signature look and high standard of quality. Using these techniques we craft your handmade fitted bedroom or kitchen furniture.

Our paint contains a catalytic hardener ensuring a clean, flat and hardwearing finish. paint is mixed to order to a colour of your choosing.

Install

A fitting date will be provided once your furniture has begun production. We offer a full fitting service for bedroom furniture and a dry fit service for kitchen furniture. Our fitters are tidy, conscientious, and provide a high level of finish.

All of our furniture is crafted by hand here in Cornwall

We believe that anything British Made is something to be proud of which is why we source all of our materials carefully and we are proud to put our name on everything that we produce. Based in the historic Roundhouse in Par, built in 1874 and designed by Sir Samuel Morton Peto, we feel a part of Cornish history and can proudly say that our furniture is hand crafted in Cornwall.

Heritage

We are incredibly proud to be a part of local Cornish history, dwelling within a historical building rich with engineering history, the St Blazey Roundhouse. Built in 1874 by Sir Morton Peto as the headquarters of Cornwall Minerals Railway, the St Blazey Roundhouse and its accompanying working turntable is the sole surviving semi-circular Roundhouse in the whole of the UK. The engineer behind the construction of The Roundhouse, Sir Morton Peto, made his name as a civil engineer and railway developer as well as a member of parliament. He was behind such famous projects as Nelsons Column and the New Houses of Parliament in London.


The depots residents changed over the years; however, the building was to remain in use for 113 years, mainly supplying small tank engines to power the china clay trains. The shed closed to steam in April 1962, but continued to house diesel until final closure exactly 25 years later.
Now home to many different businesses and ventures it is once again becoming a hub of activity. It is an exciting time and change is around the corner at The Roundhouse, the famous turntable which peers into our doors is undergoing renovations to bring it back into full working order and on that site there are plans to open an educational engineering workshop.

 

Standing in the Roundhouse and soaking in the environment really gets the blood pumping, seeing the genius of the engineers and architects of Britain’s past; this is why we feel so proud to call it our home. Being part of a long line of successors feels like an important part of our identity and we believe that your environment is a vital contributor to your mental faculty, to work in a beautiful location steeped in history and character helps one get up in the morning.
