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 commissioned us to make a drinks cabinet to fit in the alcove in their open plan lounge/dining room in their modern house. They had recently purchased a dining room suite and this drinks cabinet was designed to complement this.  Click here to see our American Black Walnut and Rippled Sycamore cabinet; and here to view Slim Jim which can be used as a drinks cabinet too.

A pair of cabinets made in oak and stone to complement our client’s garden room: the moulding on the top of the cabinets is shaped to match the fireplace surround and the stone matches the stone floor.
