Shelving Wall

Some projects feel more like a form of architecture than furniture such is the effect they have on the space in question. Here is a wall to wall, floor to ceiling set of shelves designed in part to hold a record collection (or part of one at least). The photo shows the raw MDF and

Finished Shelves

I’ve just fitted the final lower section to the shelving that I’ve been working on recently (see earlier post re mitres and veneer keys). Until I get a chance to take some proper photos here’s one I snapped with my phone.

Mitres & Veneer Keys

Mitres are a a very simple joint in principle but can be very tricky to cut accurately and glue satisfactorily. My most recent project, a set of interconnected birch plywood shelf boxes designed by my client, involved 28 mitred corners. To achieve the necessary accuracy I fettled every joint with a hand plane and a special

Bedroom Wardrobes

Since I last posted I’ve completed a number of different projects – a couple of under stairs storage systems, a kitchen office space with oak desk and suspension file wall cupboards, and today I finished a large fitted wardrobe. The wardrobe has six separate hanging spaces and features internal drawers, pull down rails and a

Sometimes I wish the designer (me) had shown a little more consideration for

home office

I’m looking forward to getting started on my next project – a home office combining shelves, cupboards, a desk and a filing cabinet in oak with hand painted doors and panels. Will be travelling a little further afield than usual to install this one!

Kitchen Islands and Russian Bots

Apologies to anyone who has tried to access my website over the last few weeks only to be greeted by the message “this website has been temporarily disabled”. Apparently a “bot” of Russian origin uploaded some malware by exploiting a weakness in part of the site (which has now been fixed). It proved a time

kitchen

I’ve recently completed (well, almost completed) work on my own kitchen. Working unpaid for four weeks is not something I’m keen to do again anytime soon but overall I’m pleased with the result. Due to budget constraints most of the carcases were bought premade and then fitted with grey Valchromat (a coloured MDF) doors and
