dock DESIGN started life as T.Delcher Design, founded by cabinetmaker, Tommy Delcher.
After honing his skills at the internationally renowned woodworking school Rowden Atelier, Tommy started out helping residents in the Liverpool area improve their homes by creating a wide range of custom-made handcrafted fitted and free-standing furniture using materials like solid wood, birch ply and MDF.
In 2022, George Ashton, a long-term collaborator of Tommy’s, became the second half of dock DESIGN. Joining forces means that here at dock, we are able to be even more adventurous on our projects than ever before, continuing to deliver the quality and standards we demand from ourselves.
We thrive on helping people see their vision come to life and working with clients to produce unique high-quality furniture designed and crafted specifically to match their needs.
Tommy was an excellent collaborator in helping us work out a design for our shelving and media unit and then carried out a superb piece of craftsmanship. We are so happy with the result!
I cannot emphasize how good this man is. His work is excellent. He had the patience of a saint whilst I was faffing around about what I wanted and it was a complete delight working with him.
Commissioning Tommy to design and build my writing desk was a no brainer. He was driven with endless passion and enthusiasm for the project from the start. He is easy to communicate with and very responsive.
