The woodwork projects on this page have been made to the specifications of my bespoke customers.
Although I am happy to consider any kind of woodwork projects including repairs, my workshop has limited floor space and it’s best suited to production of smaller items or larger pieces that can be fitted together on site. Please get in touch by email or telephone to discuss your own requirements.
The photographs show a few of the varied items I have made over the last couple of years or so.
A small bookcase in solid European oak made to the customers given dimensions. Oiled finish.
A pair of gate fold doors in solid and veneered European oak with limed oil finish to match the customers existing woodwork.
A pair of large dining chairs made in solid N. American cherry and maple with hide leather seats to match the customers existing chairs (with extra maple detailing to seat rails).
A dovetailed console table in solid European oak, made to the dimensions specified by the customer.
Box picture frames in solid European oak with painted slip interiors (for oil paintings on canvas). Mitred corners strengthened with biscuit joints.
Sizes available: 454mm, 545mm and 645mm (shortest edge) x 65mm
A chest of drawers with solid European oak drawer fronts made to fit into the customers antique wardrobe.
A pair of narrow boat ‘cratch’ doors in solid European oak (glazed and fitted by the customer).
Traditional ‘V’ section letter carving for a set of notice boards.
Display shelves for the hallway in solid European oak, with detail pictures of traditional mortise and tenon and lap dovetail joints used in the construction.
Before and after photos of a Victorian cupboard refit in an old Georgian town house.
The customer asked me to make the two lower half glazed doors (the originals were missing) to the same dimensions as the upper ones. Made in solid European oak and stained to match the existing cabinet colour.
A console table that folds open to become a dining table, made in solid oak.
With this project the customer asked me to replace the existing Ikea (black ash finish) chipboard top and bottom parts and replace them with oiled oak ones (to match their other furniture) and to add thin solid oak strips to hide the upright edges of the glass.
A kitchen cabinet with solid pine framework (in the process of manufacture) with four doors hinged centrally, to be placed against a wall on the top of the customers worktop/breakfast bar.
