This hanging sliding door is made totally from salvaged wood destined for the bonfire.

A combination of 70 year old pitch pine from a garage roof and 60 year old pine from an old loft, has been de-nailed, cleaned, planed and turned into this barn style door for a home garden office.

I think its turned out rather well and longer lasting than an hours heat from a bonfire. The client loved the features of the grain in the wood.

Something for the table.

These extra large place mats have been made for a business with the logo engraved on them. Made from a combination of Oak, Ash and Mahogany they blend together well, but give a good contrast.

They are finished off with a waney edge Oak holder for each set, with solid brass retainers.

Happy to make these to any size or design. Absolutley great for a business.

I just love getting the photos from clients when they get their new pieces, it doesnt matter how happy I am with it when its made I am never 100% happy until they are happy, but I guess thays the way it should be!

I definetly have a soft spot for doing chopping boards. Seems everyone likes a good one! Im currently working on some new patterns and wood types as well, so stay tuned.

The oak board is a nice chunky end grain board, with a knife block made to match. Its never easy making one when you havent got the knives to go in it, so its a test of faith in the measurements!

Just give me a shout if you need something made, big or small.

Nice to be outside for a change. Almost a throw back to the old days!

This made to measure log store has been made from waney edge larch fixed on a softwood frame and has a planter incorporated in the roof, which is also having a small wildlife pond put into it.

Once its planted up and the larch is oiled it should look a good contrast to the very neatly stacked logs, almost art!

Always happy to do any projects you may have, just give me a shout.

A bit of a different one today for Valentines day. A present for someone special.

A recovered jotter pad with the front andcrear cover carved in oak with leather spiral binding. Gives a new meaning to a hardback!

I'm sure you can work out what the numbers mean!

This one was made specifically to keep in the office, but they can be done for phito albums, which will make great wedding or anniversary presents.

A couple more variations of chopping board designs I have been tinkering with.

2 inch thick end grain oak with maple inserts to give a contrast and a different look to the boards.

If you have a design you want always happy to make it for you.

When I say any size, I mean any size!

This oak end grained butchers block board is 1m x 500mm and is a bit of a beast. It will be going to a client to put on a kitchen trolley.

Finished with my own home made chopping board butter, a mix of mineral oil and beeswax, the board will give a lifetime of service in the kitchen.

Always happy to make any item to the size you want

January seems to have been reall busy with a lot of projects.

Im sure youve missed me, so i thought i would just pop up this little one i made as a Valentines gift for a customer.

Made from oak the interlocking puzzle pieces make a great way to send a message to the one you love.

They also make a great cake topper or wedding present and i can do them in any size. A large one would make an intresting wall hanging.

Theres still time before valentines day to order one, so just drop me a message with what you would like engraved on it

The latest comission ready to go out the door. Looks a bit out of place in the workshop, but wont in its new home.

A tailor made sliding dog gate to go across a large opening in a house. The gate is on rollers and slides straight across with a locking mechanism to keep it shut. All finished with a spray applied gloss white. That should keep the puppy in his place!

Always happy to take on projects to suit.

Always nice to start back the new year with a couple of smaller projects.

This bowl has been turned from a piece of cherry and the unusual edges left to give it more character. It does make it a bit more scarey when its soinning on the lathe though!

Finished with a satin food safe oil and baize to the underside.

Im hoping to do a lot more intresting items this year, but i am always happy to take on a project for you.

So remember the memorial bench from yesterday that was rotten and falling apart?

Well it went from that to this! The legs have been remade in mahogany and rather than just being bolted together, theyve been glued and screwed to prevent water ingress.

The seat and back rest are the original timber, cleaned up. It was too good to trash.

The back supports had the original inscription recarved in it and a new inscription added on the top slat.

The bench has been treated with tung oil to give it plenty of protection from the elements.

The hardest part was to get the measurements spot on so it fitted the existing bolts set in the concrete base, which was no mean feet as the the original legs had disintergrated and i didnt visit the site.

All in all i think it turned out pretty well.

I really enjoy repairing and salvaging old items and giving them a new lease of life, so feel free to get in contact if youve got something you want saving.

Bit of restotation work for a change.

Theses gorgeous Globe Wernicke document storage units have a lot of history and are very sought after, but they had seen better days. (If you watch salvage hunters you will know how popular these are!)

The challange with this was to keep it looking old and used but bringing it back to life as a couple of pieces of useable furniture.

Parts of the mechanism were broken, there were several cup rings, deep scratches and various bits of veneer missing or failing.

The whole thing was cleaned down and the veneer carefully glued back where possible. Where missing it was infilled with hot furniture max to blend in. The tops were carefully scraped back. The drawers were repaired, including removing the horrors of repairing them with silicone sealant!.

Theyve been finished with several coats of wax to even out the colour distortions and bring the wood back to life, but they still show the various signs of use you would expect from furniture this age, which is part of its charm.

Very pleased with how they have been bought back to life. These are avaliable to buy if anyone is intrested.

Its definetly Spring, it definetly is!

I'm getting more orders for items for the garden now. This whopper if a garden planter is 2m long and is going to take some fillling, but will look great when its planted up.

Its fully framed inside and all the wood is pressure treated and the inside has been coated with damp proofing to extend its life. Little details like the rounded off corners and feet underneath to to keep the frame off of the ground make the difference in how long this will give pleaseure to its new owner.

A big thank you to @beverton_blacksmiths for his help in getting it delivered!

Always hapoy to take on any project for the outside as well as inside, just drop me a message

Its always nice to be asked to make something that has meaning to it and that will be treasured for years to come.

A customer asked me to make a plaque to commerorate the loss of his dog. Using a lovely piece of thick Englush Oak, a photo of Sid was engraved onto it along with their inscription.

Always feels a bit special to be asked to do something like this and a nice way to remember him.

Another new board and pattern.

Made from solid ash and the hexagon pattern carved out, with English oak hexagon inserts to give the contrast.

Great as a chopping board, a serving board or a table centre piece. I can also do these in other wood combinations and sizes.

Remember the memorial bench from a couple of weeks ago?

Its new installed in its new home and being well ysed by the weary cricketers of @chippingdalecc

It really is a wierd feeling seeing something youve spent so much time doing, in place in its new home

Really really happy with the end result and location. Its a nice feeling to have that sense of pride in what you make. The difference between a job and a craft i suppose

Something for the jewellery or something special.

This box is made from oak, ash, beech, black walnut and teak. All the wood is glued together to form one solid block and then the draws are cut from the solid block (its a secret how its done...unless you know!🤣) giving a seemless finished piece.

Ive got another one glued up ready to make but i just need some inspiration on the shape. Heart, square, circle, teardrop? Any ideas??

To say pleased is an understatement. This hexagonal memorial bench has been made for Chippingdale Cricket Club in Worthing and will have memorial plaques for past members on it.

It has seating for 5 and a really nice touch by the club is having ine seat left to allow mobility buggies to be able to reverse in to sit alongside everyone else. The backs 9f the seats have been engraved with the clubs logo

Its made from solid oak, that has all been milled by me in the workshop. It was a complicated build due to the amount of angles involved and finished with several coats of tung oil to keep it looking good for years to come.

Looking forward to seeing this in place.

Big or small always happy to take on any project.

Thought i would show some work in progress.

This project is for an oak memorial bench to go around a tree for a local cricket club. Its started out just as the milled planks. They've all been cut down to size and planed.

Now the difficult part is assembling it with a lit of complicated cuts and angles. I might even need a few more clamps.

Should look pretty special when its done though.

Very pleased with the final result on this.

This console table has been made to exact specifications from the client to match an existing table. It has been made from oak, with all the matching details and finished with a dark oak wax to match the clients other table. It will be home for the laptop to allow discreet home working.

Only problem I have is my wife likes it too much to let it go, so there might be a fight when the client comes to pick it up.

Always happy to take on any challenge big or small.

I've been meaning to make this for a while, and its more complicated to make than it looks!

Made from Sussex burl oak, American black walnut, ash, iroko, beech and 150 year old teak salvaged from the handrails from an old boat, with ash strips between the contoyrs on the curves, steam bent around them.

The board is approximatley 400mm x 400mm and makes a great chopping board, serving board or table centre piece.

This one will be going on my etsy shop.
