Fiish-Designs

Fiish designs started through frustration with the lack of good quality/design martial arts furniture available. Everything was ugly, over decorated, flimsy and generally ridiculously expensive for the quality of material and design. As a result I designed my own weapons rack. Delighted with the result I started to experiment. I quickly came to love the potentials of woodworking. I started looking for more tools and being on a budget I found it was often better to repair old hand tools myself. They are often better quality and you even find ones that are hard to find and buy without having to take out a loan. Basically though I just don't like to see the old hand tools wasted. Similarly I try to use reclaimed wood and materials wherever possible. In 2016 I started to take on paid furniture repair and make custom pieces for clients. I really look forward to seeing how far I can go from here. S.Collier -Fiish-Designs
