After apprenticing under Michael Townsend, Master Furniture Maker, for seven years in Leicester England, Stuart Brown moved to the United States in 2001. He opened his first independent workshop in New Orleans in 2004. Working primarily for the antique industry within the city, he filled a large gap in the industry very quickly. Within five months he had enough orders to move from his first shop in the garage of his house into a 5,000 sq. ft. building. Supplying the gulf coast antique import industry a place to unload goods they had purchased from overseas, Stuart inspected, repaired and restored all goods before they were publicly displayed in retail establishments.
After Hurricane Katrina, Stuart moved to Kansas City and started Tudor Woodworks in the Arts Incubator in the historic Crossroads District. Due to order volume and space needs, he moved to his own independent building in the West Bottoms in 2009.
Tudor Woodworks cares for unique pieces of furniture so they will remain both beautiful and traditional.
