About Glen Rundell
Glen began his working life as a plumbing apprentice some thirty years ago, when tinsmithing was part of the trade. He transferred his skills to various hands-on careers before travelling to the US to learn the art of American Windsor Chairmaking. When he returned, Glen set his focus purely on the chairmaking craft, and has consistently taken commissions for truly bespoke, handcrafted chairs for lovers of fine furniture. Glen is also passionate about sharing the skills and craftsmanship of his and other trades, and founded the Lost Trades Fair to inspire future makers.
