The Wardens of St Mary Magdalene Church, Great Hampden, were granted permission to modify the Church Vestry into a kitchen and storage area and asked Mark Williamson Furniture to take on the sympathetic design, skilled production and careful fitting of this interesting and challenging commission. With the clever adaptation of the Vestry Screen, by cutting out part of the framework and the lattice metalwork, we were able to create two double opening windows fitted on solid drawn brass butt hinges with recessed finger pulls to open and close the serving hatches concealed within the original screen. Behind the screen is an L shaped configuration of cabinets with sink, boiler unit with top cabinets above and a fitted wardrobe. All the cabinetry and door framework we constructed with mortice and tenon joints and made in solid oak, as are the plinths and the cabinet top. The recessed flat panels are all made using a high furniture grade moisture-resistant oak veneered MDF to provide stability in the humid environment, and were all finished with a hard-wearing clear lacquer. The design and finish of the furniture, showing off the natural grain of the oak, blends beautifully with the existing furniture inside this important and historic church dating back in parts to the 13th century.
