“I want to show off the great choice of timbers here in Britain,” says Cox, who prides himself on his fine dovetails.
 
The tallboy is available in 10 British hardwoods — ash, oak, chestnut, beech, sycamore, London plane, walnut, cherry, elm and hazel.
 
He harvests the coppiced hazel himself from a wood in Kent. Customers can order chests of drawers in any assortment of the timbers on view.
 
  • March 15, 16, 22 and 23 at Heal’s, 196 Tottenham Court Road, W1 (020 7636 1666; heals.co.uk)
