Wensleydale furniture maker Tom Addison has been able to expand the range of products he can supply through his fine furniture business thanks to a small business grant.
Tom, from Askrigg, used the £1,000 grant from Richmondshire District Council to help purchase a versatile band saw.
He said: “Being a small workshop I usually do most of the making processes by hand, but having this versatile bandsaw gives me different opportunities.
“I can now create curved pieces a lot more easily as well as cutting much larger pieces of timber.”
The next application deadline is July 25.
