Traditional Carpentry

Traditional Carpentry ~ Traditional Values

Paul Rigden has been producing high quality bespoke joinery in and around East Sussex since 1986 when he completed his traditional 6-year apprenticeship. The woodworking heritage goes back much farther than that: the immediate Rigden lineage includes boat builders and sawmill owners. He is passionate about his work with wood and this is reflected in every job he does.

The type of work produced ranges from simple furniture repairs to large construction projects and even windmill repairs.

The highest quality material is hand picked for its suitability to form, function and durability, and if appropriate, cost.

Whether carrying out repairs to an old oak door or building a high quality oak-framed building extension, attention to detail is exemplary and the finest traditional methods of construction are used.

You’ll find details and examples of work on these pages, and on the contact page you can submit an initial enquiry and Paul will get back to you to discuss your specific requirements in more detail. You can rest assured that you will be dealing with a true professional in his field.
