Chapman cabinet

We frequently take part in the Craft in Focus contemporary craft shows and the owner contacted us with a request for us to design and make a show stopper for him that would reflect with his eclectic taste and display his collection of ceramics.

This cabinet is made from cherry and ash, the legs are formed by tensioning three pieces of ash and inlaying them into the side panels of the cabinet. More curves were added as handles to the four doors and two drawers. Glass shelves and lights were installed into the top cabinet and variable height shelves into the bottom cabinet.

Carolyn Codd jewelley shop

We recently revisited Carolyn Codd's Jewellery shop in Nottingham to fit a solid cherry shelf into the front display window. We have made lots of furniture for the shop in the past including all of the cabinets, reception desks, chairs, fitted window cabinets and more+

We were really happy with how the shelf turned out and they now have it full of sparkling jewels in time for Christmas!

Elliott side table

This piece is a good example of how we can work with existing styles of furniture in your home. The client was a collector of Ercol furniture and had many pieces. they however, required a specific functionality with curved, pivoted drawers and a semicircular top to fit into a space so commissioned us to create the 'Elliott side table'

This piece is made in oak but we can create something similar in elm, walnut, ash and many more woods.  more+

Turner gamer table

The client wanted to surprise her husband with a special gift for his birthday and decided to ask us to create a games table that would house his marble games board.

The brief was to create a table with a compartment for the chess pieces and would also allow the marble games board to be flipped over to backgammon on the underneath of the board. To allow easy access to the secret compartment, we fitted the table with a button mechanism which when pushed, a dowel pushes the board up.

 



 
So that the table was in keeping with the existing old oak furniture, we used a process called 'fuming'. Oak is put into a chamber with ammonia and in 24 hours the colour is significantly darker.
