Mark Paynter, principal craftsman and founder of Lyndon Cabinet Makers is experienced in cabinetmaking, designing and making high quality fine furniture. He is also experienced in boatbuilding and repair, including marine fittings.

Mark established Lyndon Cabinet Makers 15 years ago to work on commissions for architects, contractors and private clients. He studied at the London College of Furniture during the late 1970's.

In his own words: "I have been involved with many interesting and varied projects over the years, from building timber framed houses in Canada to building wooden boatsand making bespoke furniture. In recent years I have specialised in the manufacture of curved handrail and staircases. It is in the making of geometric handrail that I take the most pride. I use traditional methods which, for the most part, have been long forgotten. There is no laminating; I cut from solid wood and profile by hand.

Using time-honoured skills to produce furniture and handrails is very important to me.This is reflected in the work I carried out for English Heritage on a beautiful Tudor coach house in the depths of the Devon countryside and also in the multi-million pound exclusive residential development commissions at Park Lane, Chelsea and Kensington, London.

My family and I made the big move from England - Salcombe in Devon - to Picton in 2006, and we have soon grown to love working and living in New Zealand."

Recent projects here have included a refit on a 90 foot yacht in Picton marina and cabinet work for a project in the Marlborough Sounds.
