RHS Wisley summer exhibition

It’s been a busy start to 2017 here in the workshop and we have been keeping ourselves warm working on some really interesting commissions. We’ve worked on a beautiful bed with built-in storage for a client in North London, a fitted ‘mud-room’ for a customer in Nottinghamshire and are just putting the finishing touches to a really special sideboard due to head to Wimbledon.

We are delighted to be heading back to RHS Wisley again this year, and will be exhibiting at the Craft In Focus Spring show in the gardens from the 27th April to the 1st May. We will be bringing along some excellent new pieces that we have not shown before as well as our ever-popular Convertable, Lapp and guitar stands.

As well as ourselves there is a vast array of very talented craft makers, artists and designers offering silver, glass, artwork and textiles, all hand made in the UK.

If you want to talk to us about a piece of furniture for your home or workplace please stop by and see us and we will be happy to discuss your ideas.

Woodford bed

A regular client of ours commissioned us to make this King size bed frame with headboard and under storage made from ash to match the rest of the furniture in the room.

One of their specifications was that there should be a tray at the top of the headboard to store remotes so we made this into a feature. All six of the drawers are on soft close runners.

6 - 20 seater dining table

6 - 20 seater dining table 

Our client approached us after seeing the convertable at one of the shows. Her brief was to create a vast and flexible dining solution with dining from 6 up to 20 people and 5 different table positions.

The two separate tables can be used individually as a six seater and open out to double size to make two 12 seaters. the two tables can be joined together to make either a large rectangle 20 seater or square 18 seater.   

We used a grey stain oil to finish which keeps the texture of the oak but calms the colour down to fit into a neutral interior style.

Woodbrook Sideboard

The Woodbrook sideboard was designed and made for a collector of fine art and contemporary furniutre. We worked with her to realise the final design of the cabinet.

The sideboard has four soft close, hidden runner drawers and two large cabinet compartments with height adjustable shelves inside.  Made from oak, we picked out pieces which match and flow keeping the look of the sideboard un-fussy and sleek.

Guitar stands

We recently designed and made a series of guitar stands that have been a total hit for christmas gifts.
The mixed wood guitar stand have a leather pad to rest your guitar on. The solid wood curve compliments the shape of the instrument and allows plenty of space for the body of an acoustic as well as an electric guitar.

The stand is available in any combination of woods. shown below in oak, ash, cherry and walnut.

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.
