Jonathan was asked to make a cot for a close friend that was expecting her first child.
The cot was constructed using recycled maple floorboards, mahogany from a damaged wardrobe and locally sourced oak. The cot included over 100 traditional mortice and tenon joints, food safe clear coating, removable (locking) front panel and the photo shows a very satisfied end user!

A close friend had seen our previous work on chessboards and asked us to make a Mankala Board.
These ancient game boards are difficult to find and we fabricated it from Oak and Mahogany incorporating a sliding drawer to contain the game pieces.
A specific router bit was obtained to create the dish shapes and dowelled joints were used throughout.
A local tree surgeon offered Jonathan a large plank of dried yew. The top of the plank had an attractive live edge shape.
The timber was planed and sanded revealing beautiful grain and colouring.
Complex router jigs were made to cut the 12 dashes for a clock symbol. The customer also wanted a logo engraved below the clock.
Knots and the graphics were filled with high quality epoxy resin.
This extremely simple night lamp was made for a young girl who was afraid of the dark which was causing disrupted sleeping. It used Epoxy, low voltage LED's and 9 sticks of hardwood timber
An existing customer had admired our previous chessboards and commissioned us to make one for his nephew. The customer had high standards and a large budget and we relished the opportunity to create something really unique!
