My name is Clement Low.
I work as an occupational therapist in Singapore. I graduated in 2003 and have been practicing since. I graduated with a Masters in Gerontology from the University of Sydney in 2008. I used to work in a acute hospital rotaing from geriatrics, orthopedics, cardiology, stroke units, and other departments. I left the acute hospital in 2010 for a NGO prescribing and implementing assistive technology for people with disabilities.
I started woodworking as a hobby in 2007 when I got married. I started off finishing unfinished Ikea furniture, then went on to modifying it. Next I moved on to plywood and finally to solid wood. In 2012, I started developing a taste for Arts and Craft Furniture, Greene and Greene in particular. I am now working on fabricating this style of furniture. I’ve yet to find like minded woodworkers in Singapore.
I do woodworking at home making furniture for my own use. I do it at work, fabricating equipment for people with disabilities that are not available commercially. I also do woodworking in church, making the crib for the Christmas season and other occasions in the Catholic calendar.
Other activities I have interest in are photography and cooking. I also volunteer as a first aider with St. John Ambulance.
I hope to produce customed made furniture for a living some day. Producing furniture of high quality, and made to last more than a lifetime. This will allow me to enjoy what I do and put food on the table at home. In the meantime, I do pieces at the request of friends. I’ll be happy to do a piece for anyone who appreciates my work.
