Chest of Drawers Challenge

This is my very first custom made chest of drawers and I although it was a little complicated, I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge and think it came out extremely well. Whilst I have made many cupboards and cabinets and I have made drawers to fit in to cupboards or into gaps in kitchens and bedroom […]

Rustic Kitchen Roll Holders

Small projects can be fun too. Whilst at Stroud Farmers Market I was asked if I had any of these and as I had not yet attempted to make any I said not at the moment but I will have some by the next market. So I went of to the workshop and made a […]

Wall Mounted Kitchen Plate Rack

One of the best things about being out and about doing market stalls is that you meet lots of interesting people that turn out to be prospective clients.

Hall Shelves for Everyone

Don’t Pigeon Hole Me

One of this weeks projects was to build a set of wall mounted pigeon holes to house a collection of cats.  I decided to use pallet wood for the job and added brass label frames and brass wall hangers. I enjoyed making them so much that I was inspired to make another slightly larger set […]

Ever Expanding Business

To be sure that there will be sufficient space to build even the largest of projects, the extension increases the space by over 5 square metres. Its all been made for reclaimed wood […]
