About Us

British Autowood is a small business blending traditional techniques with modern materials to bring the woodwork in your cherished 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 beautiful daughters. 

My late 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. sparked my interested in these beautiful cars from a very young age, and this eventually led to me pursuing woodwork restoration. Being a sole proprietorship, I handle all duties from internet to shipping, design, and all the other aspects of veneering, finishing and so on.

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, usually 24-48hrs. I do not have a phone in my workshop (was spending more time on it than working!), but you are more than welcome to send me a TEXT to 407 7182193. 

Thanks for your time.
