Robert Kernohan

Member of the Guild of Master Craftsmen

Following retirement as a surgeon, Robert now devotes the majority of his time to making museum quality wooden rocking chairs. Robert is a member of the Guild of Master Craftsmen and ‘craft&design selected’.
Each individually tailored chair is of museum quality and can be made in almost any hardwood of your choice. The underside of the seat is engraved with the makers mark, wood species, chair number, date of manufacture and by whom commissioned.
Bespoke design allows for the creation of pieces specific to the customers exact requirements. Acquiring a specially commissioned piece is great fun and an opportunity to express your individuality and own a piece of furniture unique to you.


We would like to thank you for the excellent job which you made of our hall mirror. When we ordered it with only a vague idea of what we wanted we had no idea that it would turn out so well. We especially like the curly maple drawer front and the purpleheart edging.

Robert has made many doors for me, including curved door and curved frame to match rebated double doors, hand rails and spindles. Also, deep skirting and door architraves have been made to match existing Victorian profiles for my house renovation, which was originally built in 1840. The work was completed quickly and very accurately in solid pitch pine, down to the last detail. I was more than pleased with the work and the workmanship and customer service was excellent.

The chair was delivered today, Monday 17th Jan, ie a week early. Fortunately there was someone here to take delivery and I am writing to thank you for all the care and trouble you have taken. Your chair lives up to my expectations and is exactly what I had hoped for.  It is superb.

The chair exceeded my expectations by a mile, both in looks and comfort and it gets great reactions from people visiting our home. A great combination of fine workmanship, a healthy no-nonsense approach and customer service to die for.

I would like to thank you for the beautiful rocking chair you designed and made for us. We especially appreciated the trouble you went to in finding the beautiful Kauri wood and importing it all the way from New Zealand. The dedication you have to your profession is evident in every fine detail and the Kauri rocking chair will remain in our family for many years to come, in fact, we see it as a family heirloom. I look forward to further projects in the near future and thank you once again for all the bespoke furniture you have made for us over the last six years. Wishing you and your business every success for the future.
