He makes them. I fill them. Pantry Shelves.

Alcove Unit

August 6, 2011

4

Keen eyed readers may recall this post from a while back, which marked the beginning of a project to provide an alcove unit in our hybrid study/back sitting room. Now I’ve looked at the dates and realised its taken nearly 5 months to finish, I’ll add that to the pile of reasons why I don’t […]

Fitted Bookcases

January 11, 2011

5

Hello its me, I’m still here…. or in the words of Mark Twain, the rumours of my death have been greatly exaggerated. It seems to be some 3 months since I last posted anything, but here goes. This project marks an interesting landmark for me, as a first paid commission. The bookcases are made in […]

Just a bookcase

November 6, 2010

We have a new bookcase. Hello bookcase, nice to meet you. You fit that space very well. I like the way you carry those books too, very fetching. Much better than them being all over the floor. I won’t have to hoover round them now. What’s that you say? Ed made you…in his workshop? Yes, […]

Chair Covers

October 5, 2010

I finally got around to putting new covers on our dining chairs today. This is not a ‘how to’ post. It’s to remind me of Ed’s maxim that ‘it only get’s done if you do it.’ It only took a couple of hours and cost me the grand total of £7.50 So I am feeling […]

Cherry Table

May 18, 2010

2

Ed designed and made this table for our dining room a few years ago. We’d looked around a while for a ‘console’ style table but just couldn’t find one that was right, so he set about making it himself. It was featured in Furniture and Cabinetmaking magazine who asked him to write an article about […]

If I had a hammer…

January 9, 2010

5

…well I do now. Having made a plane adjustment hammer and then given it away (see Handtool Secret Santa post) I thought I should make myself one. As it happens it was worth waiting, as Mk.2 is slightly more refined and better executed; The head of the hammer is made in Brass, using my ancient […]

Handtool Secret Santa

December 25, 2009

3

Even woodworkers need Christmas presents… For the last couple of years I have organised a secret santa for handtool enthusiasts on the woodworking internet forum I belong to. Its a bit of fun and also means that amongst the socks and bath salts, this little group of woodworkers gets a tool related gift from one […]

The smallest room

I finished this bathroom on the ground floor of our house last year, but never got round to blogging it, so here it is. The works were extensive including excavating and pouring a new concrete slab for the floor, all new plumbing and electrics and fully replastering; all done by my own fair hand. I […]

Occasionally Tables

June 18, 2009

2

Well quite often tables in my case – it seems to be something I make a lot of. These Oak tables were made in a group of 6 to take some advantage of batch production. Interestingly the tops and stretcher rails are made from recycled library shelves given to me by a friend, who received […]

Maple Console Table

June 2, 2009

2

This console table in Canadian Maple was designed to sit on the landing at the top of a staircase, hence its very shallow depth. The subtle curves of the leg and the centre rail give a simple elegance, while the through wedged tenons provide some detail to punctuate the form.                                        […]

Boot rack

May 31, 2009

I used to wonder what people were going on about needing boot racks and mud rooms on these American home programmes, until we owned a dog…now I get it. This installation in American White Oak is designed to help manage the pile of boots and coats that are cast aside on returning from walkies. It […]
