Wilf Hutchinson started as a Mouseman apprentice in 1952, leaving after his apprenticeship and setting up his own business in 1958. Wilf sadly died on 15th June this year after a long illness, aged 76, but the business continues in the capable hands of his son Trevor, himself a fine wood craftsman and upholsterer.

Great value at less than half the cost of a comparable Mouseman sideboard. To purchase new from Squirrel Woodcarvers it would cost £ 3,250.
