We can finish our furniture in infinite colours, styles, finishes and lacquers. In this …

Opening bookcase and under stairs storage – Botolph Claydon

We completed this commission for our clients in Botolph Claydon in May of this year. Again, this is a popular modification that we are asked to carry out often as it creates useful space out of very little – an area under the stairs that is usually boarded up or underused. The bookcase also acts cleverly as a door to …

Sliding oak screens – Terrick

    Back in June this year, we made and fitted these beautiful sliding screens for our clients with a wonderful house in Terrick. We made them in natural Oak with a lacquer finish and low iron glass. These screens, as you can see from the photos, run on a Henderson running track, and so can be opened from one side …

Oak cabinets for the wonderful 12th century Dinton Church, Buckinghamshire

In this video from our YouTube channel, Mark is in the wonderful 12th century church of SS Peter and Paul at Dinton, Buckinghamshire. We have just finished making some oak cabinets and cupboards for the church and we took this clip just after fitting them into the church – not easy on an undulating 12th century floor! The vestry cupboards …

Under stairs storage solution, Akeley – a continual favourite with clients!

This is our latest installation of our under stairs storage solution, designed, made and fitted for clients in Akeley, Bucks. Our under stairs storage solution continues to be a regular commission for us, and it’s easy to see why. It uses space that is usually wasted, and often badly organised if in use at ll.

Oak wardrobes for our repeat clients in Aylesbury

  We often go back again and again for clients who love our work so much that they want to match the rest of their furniture with what we originally make for them. Our clients in Aylesbury are no exception, and last year we completed some stunning fitted wardrobes for them in oak. The wardrobes feature a drawer at the …

Bespoke shelves – in cherry from the beautiful Lambridge Wood

  Do you remember last year we posted that we had been lucky enough to be invited to a client’s woodland called Lambridge Wood to ‘cherry pick’ and take away some beautiful cherry wood – see that post here. Well, towards the end of last year and after many months of drying later, we finished making some bespoke shelves from …

Improving on what you already have

Sometimes our clients ask us to regenerate furniture that they already have. Maybe it’s perfectly good but outdated, and needs modernising, or rejigging to accommodate new appliances or a new style. We can do this for kitchens (see the kitchen we worked on here: Nettlebed kitchen overhaul), and we can also work to improve what other furniture there might already be …

Hall or nothing

Earlier this year we were commissioned to design and make hallway furniture for our clients who own a wonderful Arts and Crafts house in Gerrards Cross. Our clients wanted a settle bench and a coat peg rail, and required both to fit in seamlessly their hallway with the rest of the style of the house. The peg rail is constructed …
