Les Kerr began making furniture in the 1980s. It was an extension of his work as an artist. He enjoyed creating utilitarian pieces and working with wood.
He drew sketches for furniture in the same way as he drew preliminary sketches for his paintings; working entirely from these drawings without blueprints.
His influences were Shaker furniture design and Japanese woodworking.
