About Us

British Autowood is a small business blending traditional techniques with modern materials to bring the woodwork in your British car back to life.  

All manner of interior wood restoration & re-veneering undertaken, classic or modern, as well as custom and sometimes "one off"accessories.


Originally from Cardiff, Wales, I relocated to the USA over thirty years ago, and reside in central Florida with my wife plus five daughters. 


My father was an avid car enthusiast (photo right 1960) and our family history with Jaguar Cars in particular goes back a considerable number of years. Growing up around Mk2's, E-Types etc. in the 1960's/70's got me interested in these beautiful cars from a young age, and that in turn led to the woodwork, which has been the focus of my small business from the outset, 


For an estimate, or specific quote, please don't hesitate to contact via the form on the front page, or drop me a line britishautowood@gmail.com, and I will endeavor to respond as quickly as  possible. Thank you.

It's not often you get a telegram from Jaguar's founder, Sir William Lyons to come and join the factory racing team, but that was the case back in 1962.
