Received an email last night from Peter Vivian, who found our website randomly when searching traditional soapbox racers. I immediately took a shine to his woodwork, so decided to share them in a blog post. Now I just need to come up with a project so we can work together – Soapbox & Sons Derby?

Peter Vivian was a regular contributor to Practical Woodworking magazine and a runner-up in the ‘Woodworker of the year’ competition. Also received the Gough prize for woodwork. His work has been displayed at The Royal Academy of Art and also presented to HRH Prince Charles and featured at the Royal Albert Hall.
