Introducing Kovecses Woodworking

Kovecses Woodworking is a family-run business that specializes in custom furniture-making. We have been crafting fine, hardwood furniture since the late 1800s and continue our tradition today in our workshop located in the small town of Charingworth, England. We are passionate about creating beautiful wooden masterpieces that range from simple dining tables to crafted cabinetry. Our team of highly skilled craftsmen use traditional joinery techniques such as dovetailing, mortise and tenon construction, as well as old saws and planes to produce objects of lasting beauty and quality. From formal seating areas to country cottages and basements, we work with our clients every step of the way to make sure that their custom pieces perfectly reflect their style. Our products are made from exotic timbers sourced from all around the world, allowing us to offer unique designs for each customer’s project. We take great pride in our refined craftsmanship, making sure each piece meets our high standards before leaving our shop. In addition to custom furniture-making, we also provide repair services for existing pieces. Whether it’s basic wood repairs or touched up antiques, Kovecses Woodworking can bring life back into an old piece with a few simple strokes of sandpaper and some new finishes!

The History of Kovecses Woodworking

Kovecses Woodworking began in 1947, with the founding of a small wood shop in Hungary by master craftsman and carpenter, Antal Kovecses. He had apprenticed under some renowned local cabinetmakers, who taught him the traditional European techniques and styles. His goal was to furnish customers with unique and finely crafted furniture that reflected old-world design elements. As word spread, demand for his work increased and he soon expanded his woodshop to accommodate larger projects.

Antal’s sons joined their father in the business and eventually took over the operations when Antal retired in the early 1970s. The workshop typically employed two or three people at any given time, many of whom were family members; some first cousins also worked there on a part-time basis during school holidays or summer breaks.



The family focused their attention towards making quality reproductions of period pieces from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, that included Arts and Crafts bookcases, chairs, desks, benches and armoires. In addition to antique reproductions, they designed custom pieces for clients throughout Hungary and even abroad. Some special orders meant sourcing exotic woods from Austria, Italy or Germany depending on what was needed. Utilizing modern woodworking techniques while preserving old world craftsmanship proved to be very successful for Kovecses Woodworking throughout its history—from its humble beginnings right up until today as a thriving artisanal workshop located just outside Budapest.
