Following in the footsteps of his father and both grandparents, Leon was clearly born with a passion for woodworking.
Back in the 1990s, he started his career as an apprentice with a high-end furniture manufacturer. Three years at the Countryside Agency followed, training intensively in traditional methods of joinery and wood machining. Leon then moved to his father’s Oxford workshop, specialising in period architectural joinery.
In 2004, Leon saw the opportunity to found Oxford Planters, focusing on the finest outdoor furniture and planters. The rest, as they say, is history. Leon now works on commissions from clients around the world, encompassing architectural projects as well as the stunning garden pieces on which the Oxford Planters name has been built.
