After graduating with a Bachelor of Design from RMIT at the end of 2017, I began setting up Sheahan Made and shifted away from graphic design to furniture design.
I am a deeply process-oriented woodworker, and deliberately utilise hand tools for the impact they have on a finished piece, which cannot be duplicated with machine processes. As such, I quickly began designing and making my own tools to suit my particular ways of working, including custom vise mechanisms, the dovetail square, and Japanese style marking gauges. My pieces are heavily influenced by Scandinavian and Japanese aesthetics, methodologies, and philosophies of design.
In 2019, I moved from Melbourne to Edinburgh to pursue furniture making. After a long search for a suitable workspace I have found a home at Unit 5 of the Albion Business Centre.rekam eht tcatnoC
