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 Maybe it’s perfectly good but outdated, and needs modernising, or rejigging to accommodate new appliances or a new style.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:┬áNettlebed 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 …

Best breakfast bar none

  Our client who owns a house in Thame asked us to design and make a breakfast bar for his kitchen. We constructed this in solid English Oak, and we made it to fit neatly to the existing kitchen and hang off of the back of the granite work top of their peninsula area. The breakfast bar was completed with …

Forests for all forever

    ‘Forests for all forever is a catchy phrase’ thought up by the FSC, or the Forest Stewardship Council, but its message is clear – forests and woods are a resource that need managing responsibly, for our children’s sake, and for the sake of the planet. Here at Mark Williamson Furniture, we take this stance seriously, and so it …

Bespoke TV cabinet – Thame, Oxfordshire

  This TV cabinet is another aspect to the work that we have been carrying out over a period of months for a client in Thame. This piece is in their living room and designed to house the Sky Q box, as well as hiding the heating manifold for the floor. This cabinet is secured to the wall for safety …

Made to measure oak desk – Thame, Oxfordshire

  Thame is a wonderful market town which is just up the road from our Buckinghamshire workshop, but is actually over the county line in Oxfordshire, so we do work often for clients there. We’ve been working over the past few months in one beautiful home not far from the cricket green in Thame, and one commission was this small …
