Testimonial from a magazine editor I have dealt with Jeremy Broun over a number of years in my capacity as Deputy Editor of  The Woodworker and Editor of Routing magazine. Jeremy is a highly skilled, well known and respected woodworking craftsman who has contributed many good quality articles to various magazines over the last 20 years. During   my   own   dealings   with   Jeremy   I   have   always   found   him to   be   extremely   helpful   and   reliable,   being   able   to   provide   very well    written    text    which    is    always    technically    and    factually correct.   He   is   able   to   follow   a   brief   and   deliver   projects   and written   material   to   the   agreed   deadline.   Jeremy’s   photography is   also   of   good   quality   and   has   always   illustrated   his   articles very well. I   would   have   no   hesitation   in   recommending   Jeremy   to   anyone considering   employing   him   for   his   woodworking,   writing   or   any of his many other skills.

Testimonial from a peer Without doubt, Jeremy has done more than any other designer maker to promote the existence of fine furniture design and making in the last 35 years This is demonstrated through his craft, his   teaching,   his   incredibly   large   back   catalogue   of   videos, his   extensive   selection   of   written   matter   not   only   as   short articles but reference books as well. Most    of    these    have    received    awards    for    their    excellence. Jeremy    is    the    complete    designer    craftsman.    He    is    the standard, the benchmark to which one strives to attain.”                          Nicholas Chandler Furniture designer 2013 Read what the critics say about Jeremy Broun’s furniture designs
