Working Wood

Working Wood began over 20 years ago and is the trading name of work made by Matt Somerville.

Matt's love of wooden boats began after spending time sailing and maintaining the square rigger, Maria Assumpta. The following eight years were spent building and restoring many boats and yachts in England, Europe and Brazil, learning a great deal from the master shipwrights he met along the way.

In 1994 Matt set up his first workshop and continued to work on smaller boats brought to the yard. Most interior boat work is now done using accurate templates and then components made efficiently in the workshop before fitted on site. Matt has a long-standing relationship with a high quality timber merchant who lets him select the best possible timber for each particular project.
