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.

Bathroom cabinets – wall mounted

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.

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.

Moulding on cabinet to match fireplace surround

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. The cabinets were designed to house hi-fi equipment and vinyl record collection. Glass shelves completed the display section.

The drawers are housed in an American black walnut cabinet, which provides a strong dark outline for each drawer.  This theme is continued on to the wardrobe doors.
