Forest oak kitchen table

This is a direct copy of the clients’ existing kitchen table – they wanted a free-standing extension for friends and family.  It’s an oak from the Forest of Dean which they had already sawn and seasoned, and they wanted the wood left raw so it could be tinted to match later.  There’s something very satisfying about making furniture from a home tree and this, with all its pips and burrs, came up really beautifully.

Chopping boards

Designed to be practical in the kitchen at the same time as looking gorgeous.  Chop your different piles of veg on them, hold the board through the thumb-hole like an artist’s palette and scrape everything into the pan.  The larger size is ideal as a generous-size chopping board and the smaller for bread or cheese, but they can be used interchangeably.

Large 450 x 320mm, small 400 x 268 mm, timber varies according to availability.

Sycamore A-Frame Table

These are actually two separate tables, both made of sycamore.  One was made for the kitchen in an old 17th century farmhouse and the other for a modern 70’s open-plan kitchen / dining area.  In both, the tables fitted like they’d been made for the place.  In forestry terms sycamore seeds itself so enthusiastically it’s often thought of as a weed but it can also be outstandingly beautiful, as richly fiddlebacked as the sections which luthiers use for making instruments.

First table: (two top boards) 1800 x 1000 x 750.  Top 40mm thick.
Second table: (five top boards) 1800 x 980 x 760. Top 35mm thick.

Oak & Sycamore Headboard

The dark oak endgrain tiles in this headboard came off a bonfire.  They had originally held up the roof of an 18th century cider mill and were discarded when renovations were being done.  On the outside they worm-eaten but on the inside, they were still radiant.  Over the decades ammonia has darkened the oak from honey to almost mahogany but left the cellular markings sharp.  I’ve arranged tiles of endgrain against the satiny pallor of sycamore and left its history – splits, wild grain, steel stains – evident.

Bathroom Cabinets

Once in a while, I have a small amount of really gorgeous wood just waiting around for the right project.  These are bathroom cabinets designed to rest on the floor beside a toilet or a bath and to take all the usual bits and bobs: loo roll, cleaning products, spare toiletries etc.  The first is made from oak and burr oak, the second from lacewood and black walnut.
