Burr Oak Coffee Table

March 9, 2011

The brief given to us by our client was to design and make a coffee table with a drawer for use in their lounge.  They required the table to complement their Victorian furniture yet have a contemporary element to the design. The oval shape gave the most practical design solution for the way the client would use the table. The table is constructed in oak and veneered with burr oak with bog oak detailing. The bog oak dates to approximately three and a half thousand years BC.

The  drawer is constructed with handcut dovetail joints and the table was finished using an AC Lacquer for durable use as a coffee table.

We were very pleased with the final piece.

Demi Lune Console Table

April 8, 2010

We made this table using Bird’s Eye Maple veneer with Rosewood feet and detailing to complement our client’s Art Deco period house.

This semi-circular table has a single drawer, which has a curved front and handcut dovetails.  Bird’s Eye Maple is a very hard wood with a very decorative grain structure created by the birdseyes.

Bird’s Eye Maple features in another of our table designs here.  Have a close look at our MWL desk – it’s asymmetric design allows more space for a personal computer.

Our client’s ensuite bathroom was completely renovated and updated and we were commissioned to make a dark timber corner wall-mounted cabinet.  During the design stage we prepared several timber samples, and wenge was chosen by our client.  The interior of this cabinet is lined with maple veneer.  Two of the cabinet doors, in the corner of the unit, are bifold, giving full access to the inside.  At each end of the cabinet are single door cupboards, housing pull-out wire baskets.  The doors have soft close mechanisms.

The wall mounted cabinet leaves plenty of room for feet when using the washbasins, and we were able to mount the unit at exactly the right height for our client’s comfort.  You can see more of our bathroom cabinets here.
