The utility room is only the freaking hub of the Sutton universe, where all activities, humans, animals, deliveries and general comings and goings seem to focus. Who knew?

The one where I ramble on about children, food...and planks.

I am a ditherer. That might seem surprising for someone who appears to get a lot done, but I endlessly analyse decisions about the smallest details of a project. Sometimes the things I spend hours considering aren’t even visible in the finished piece. I make sketches, produce 3D CAD models, discuss things with friends, build […]

"An antipasti plank you say? I've got a big piece of oak. How big do you want it?"

I decided to make use of my new spindle moulder on this box for a friends upcoming wedding gift. The box sides are joined with hand cut dovetails, which people seem to like and should create something that will last for generations.

When I first thought of building a nice deep Japanese style soaking tub, I had it in the back of my mind that getting in and out might be an issue for those of shorter stature. I then forgot all about that and got down to the complex business of completely rebuilding a bathroom. The […]

Bathroom Part 3

Fanfare please! The bathroom. It’s finished. No more will the boy have to tiptoe (like an elephant) through our room to use our bathroom and finally I can brush my teeth without battling with an eight year old for sink space. There are a few finishing touches that we need to add, a toilet roll […]

I know you are all sitting there wondering “How on earth are they getting on with that bathroom” Well wonder no more. Here is the update you are looking for. Well, we can’t deny that choosing the ‘Japanese Style’ Omnitub has caused Ed some extra work. He has had to build a support unit for […]

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

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 […]

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 […]
