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.

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 t
o attain.'
