Thorndown are delighted to sponsor Wayne Perrey’s critically acclaimed podcast series, TV Carpenter.


The TV Carpenter podcast series featured in the Sunday Times Homes supplement in the Top 5 Interiors Podcasts. We are all really proud of the recognition that Wayne has received for producing such a brilliant and engaging podcast series.

Season 6 began on Friday 5th February 2021 to coincide with the beginning of the new series of ‘Interior Design Masters’ on BBC 2 at 8pm from Tuesday 2nd February. Wayne will be interviewing guests, discussing the show and giving behind the scenes anecdotes on a series that was pretty amazing.

He will be interviewing interior designer and TV presenter Abigail Ahern, who is a guest judge on the fabulous new series of ‘Interior Design Masters’, that saw some brilliant budding designers competing for the grand contract and amazing us with some extraordinary designs. Celebrity florist Simon Lycett whose displays have adorned Royal weddings, joined Wayne for a fascinating chat.

Season 5 began on Friday 16th October with the legendary Alan Titchmarsh MBE, gardener, garden designer, TV presenter, author, journalist, and generally amazing man loved by the nation and beyond!

Wayne chatted to some incredible talent in Season 4. Jordan and Russell from 2LG Studio kicked-off season 4 on Friday 3rd July with another entertaining and fascinating interview with these two incredibly talented and renowned designers.

The dulcet tones of interior designer Daniel Hopwood, make for a very easy to listen to interview with delightful stories about his career and success. From across the pond Ethan Waldman chats to Wayne about Tiny House living in a really interesting interview about the successes and challenges in condensed living, with some quite mind-blowing designs and cheats to optimise use of space.

Architect Kate Clare from Loud Architects talks architecture, design and planning with tips on how to deal with planning departments, and how she approaches interior design.

Also in Season 4 Head judge of Interior Design Masters and former editor-in-chief of ELLE Decoration, Michelle Ogundehin joins Wayne for a delightful interview; Rukmini Patel, Interior Designer and co creator of the ‘Design for Diversity Pledge’ chats about her blog, interior design business, and how she is helping to combat the lack of diversity in the industry; and Katie Rushworth from ITV’s ‘Love Your Garden’ talks about her horticultural and presenting career. Wayne also chats to Shelina Jokhiya from De-cluttrme, award-winning Interior Designer and Blogger Christian Bense, Ross and Chris from The Curious Department, and TV’s lady builder Sian Astley.

The grande finale of Season 4 was an hour long interview with the incredible potter, product designer and interior designer Jonathan Adler. An hour speeds past in a thoroughly warming, entertaining and insightful interview into this industry legend.

Season 3 began on Friday 20th March 2020 with Lucy Tiffney, Maximalist artist and designer from BBC ‘Great Interior Design Challenge’.

Wayne was set to interview a selection of stylists, designers and the legendary Alan Titchmarsh on stage at the Ideal Home Show for season 3. This show was postponed but Wayne continued season 3 with many fascinating guests to entertain and inspire us, including Property Restorer (Man with a Hammer) Greg Penn, Interior Designer and founder of charity initiative Design Havens for Heroes, Francesca Rowan Plowden, Interior Designer Sophie Robinson, Designer & TV Presenter Max McMurdo, Kate Watson-Smth from Mad About the House,  TV Garden Producer Thea Pitcher, Chris Billinghurst, the director and creator of ‘House Of Upcycling’.

Season 2 has a collection of fascinating people being interviewed by Wayne, imparting style and design advice. Some are hilarious like Zoe Pocock from MuckNBrass and others are engaging and intimate as horticulturalist and garden designer Alan Gardener speaks to Wayne about his battle with health and life after.

Wayne Perrey has been a specialist carpenter for 10 years, designing, crafting and building bespoke furniture for private clients.
