About Joseph

At the early age of 4 years old, Joseph Hemingway found himself studying a carved panelled door on a sideboard in his parents' front room. A few days later his mother brought home a copy of "The Director" which illustrated the designs of the Master Carver, Thomas Chippendale.

It was from this that Joseph's interest in carving evolved. His skills found him continuously receiving top marks in his woodwork classes at school, often winning woodworking books.  which continued through to college where he achieved a "First Class City and Guilds" in 'Cabinet- Making, Furniture design.

Upon leaving school he worked for: Taylor & Hobson Ltd Huddersfieid, Mechanics in Wood'  (1851-1991) and worked his way through all there  departments, ( just the same departments that Thomas Chippendale had in 1754? according to: Christopher Gilbert,in his book: 'The  Life and Work of Thomas Chippendale', published in:1978?( Note: all his records are lost) Departments  in three locations, in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, UK.gaining skills and experience in the art of cabinetmaking. products what the customer are longing to Pocure.After eleven years of Cabinet work & Restoration, Joseph decided to start his own business in 1968, as a Cabinet maker, Wood-carver and Furniture Restorer.
 The is when Joseph started to take specialist orders from "The Director", Producing: Thomas Chippendale, Furniture to the highest order. After many years of studying Thomas Chippendale's work there was one particular design that had challenged every master carver, but no-one had ever succeeded in creating this designs - not even Thomas Chippendale himself - until: 2000. Dr Hemingway, Hand Carved The Impossible Chair'in: 2010 : The 'Ribban-back' Chair.

Dr Hemingway has  patented these 2  designs, from Thomas Chippendale's "The Directors" 1754 - 1762.
