About Shadowdog Carpentry

Shadowdog was started by carpenter and designer David Handford as a way to invent and make high quality lighting and furniture from humble sustainably sourced materials. All work is hand-crafted in Morecambe, Lancashire, England and built in compliance with all British standards.

Our goal is to imagine and explore what can be handmade for modern life using the best designs and building methods while emphasising the beauty of humble sustainably sourced materials.
Shadowdog is a traditional and digital fabrication workshop, we make bespoke projects for business and private customers. Our designs are unique to ourselves combining age-old design principles and contemporary aesthetics.

History of Shadowdog Carpentry

David has been a keen carpenter since an early age, raised in South Cumbria in Northern England, he would take inspiration from the architecture and natural environment such as the forests and meadows around Lake Windermere. During these years, he excelled at wood and metal working during his formal education.

After School, David spent time in the armed services serving in the Middle East and Northern Ireland after which did many years of traveling. He later went onto gain a BA (Hons) in Creative Arts from the University for the Creative Arts.

In 2014, David renovated an old run-down building into a workshop studio in Morecambe Lancashire where Shadowdog was born.

Production and installation of a bespoke oak column outside my house. Shadowdog exceeded all expectations. Great firm to deal with. Transparent quote, clear plan of what would happen and how long a great installation. Wouldn't hesitate to use again.

Fantastic craftsmanship, amazing attention to detail and incredibly accommodating. Love my kitchen, patio and gate.
