Here are some pictures of a new piece I just made out of reclaimed oak from an old spiral staircase in my house (hence the name!)
From 16th - 31st July 2011, the Devon Furniture Makers will be holding a fine furniture exhibition entitled "The Colour of Wood" at the prestigious RHS Garden Rosemoor. 10 Devon-based fine furniture craftsmen will be displaying unique pieces of furniture against a backdrop of colour and the beauitful Rosemoor gardens in July.
This is my new piece – the lake farm coffee table.
500 Cabinets, juried by John Grew Sheridan, is the third title in a series of books focused on furniture making as a part of Lark's esteemed 500 series. Earlier titles were 500 Chairs, juried by Craig Nutt, and 500 Tables, juried by Andrew Glasgow. Those gallery books received wide praise in trade and general media coverage and have averaged 5-stars in Amazon customer reviews.
The Oakfields coffee table is a simple elegant and refined oak coffee table which serves equally well as a bench. It has been finished in Danish oil.
Finally, after a few months of procrastination, I have succeeded in updating the gallery pages of my website, with some new pieces. The “Derwen” table was completed in May 2009 for clients in Denbigh, Wales, for their new home.
