01

Japanese Style Coffee Table

My client envisioned a bold statement piece: a chunky 1.5-meter block of solid oak, cloaked in an intense black that demanded attention. Durability was key, as it needed to withstand the everyday bustle. Working hand-in-hand with the client and utilising the masterful finishes of Rubio Monocoat, I transformed this dream into reality. Handcrafted from premium oak, the piece boasts the desired chunky aesthetic, while the flawless, deep black finish – achieved through partnership with Rubio Monocoat – offers superior protection against scratches, stains, and daily wear. The result? A bespoke masterpiece exceeding expectations, where functionality dances seamlessly with artistic expression

Solid Oak Floor Covering

When a client's home extension brought unwelcome drafts due to their seasonal floor covering changes, they faced the challenge of replacing a deteriorating flooring cap. Together, I tackled this by crafting a bespoke solid oak cap, finished with the durable and wear-resistant Rubio Monocoat. Meticulously designed to fit seamlessly around walls, skirting boards, and doors, the cap provided a perfect solution. Additionally, by colour-matching it to their existing Douglas fir parquet flooring, I achieved a cohesive and visually appealing final touch, restoring warmth and comfort to their home.

03

Outdoor Side Table

Dreaming of enjoying summer sun or cosy autumn evenings by the fire? This client desired the same, but struggled to find outdoor furniture that fit their exact needs. They wanted a piece next to their pond, durable enough to withstand the elements, specific in size (to hold drinks and snacks), and complementary to their garden style.

I met their challenge by crafting a unique and functional side table. Made from sustainable oak whiskey barrels, it blends seamlessly with their garden while boasting a weatherproof finish that eliminates winter storage or constant refinishing. Now, they can relax by the fire or bask in the summer sun, enjoying multiple drinks and snacks on their perfectly sized and stylish companion.

Backgammon Board

This client's love for board games was infectious, evident in the unique carrom board adorning their wall. They desired a custom backgammon board, accessible for casual games with friends and family, ideally resting on their dining table. Embracing their interest in reclaimed materials, I envisioned a stunning piece that embodied both beauty and sustainability.

My journey began with the selection of materials. Reclaimed walnut flooring offered a rich warmth, while contrasting maple added a touch of light. But the true gem was the 5,000-year-old bog oak, its ancient history adding a captivating element.

Having never played backgammon myself, a visit to their home proved invaluable. Learning the game firsthand allowed me to understand the ideal size and layout for optimal gameplay. The result? A breathtaking bespoke board, meticulously crafted and now occupying a place of honor in their home.
