The Hand-Crafted Cabinet Your Guitar Deserves

When creativity and a passion for the guitar come together, the result can be both beautiful and practical



Andrew Cockerill (24) from York has played the guitar for over 10 years, but his other passion is woodworking. He is currently completing a furniture design course at the Chippendale International School of Furniture, and as part of the course, he’s designed and crafted a guitar cabinet in oak and sycamore, with an innovative opening mechanism, which is both a functional storage space and a beautiful display cabinet. Andrew has set up Northern Woodwright Furniture, based in East Lothian, to make bespoke hand-crafted cabinets for other like-minded guitar enthusiasts. “I’d be delighted to hand-make guitar cabinets for anyone who wants to show off, as well as store, their guitar. There’s nothing like them on the market, and I can build each cabinet to particular specifications – making them both bespoke and unique,” says Andrew.
