It's nice when things go to plan! Second lot of floating shelves fitted in as many days. Fortunately these went up without any hiccups, (although I did get yesterday's shelves up in the end and they're looking great, will photo them when the rest of that kitchen is finished). These shelves are in a kitchen refurb and in their previous life were the clients old oak worktops. Great to reuse the timber and give them a new lease of life!  #floatingshelves #reclaimedwood #reuse

Contemporary oak table 2m x 0.7m. I've made several versions of this piece bespoke to suit a variety of spaces. Larger or smaller it's a elegant addition to any setting. #diningtable #oaktable #bristolfurniture #handmade #bespoke

Just installed this huge bespoke home office storage unit. I've also made 2 desks and under desk storage units for this purpose built extension, which I'll photograph and post next week. The unit is MDF, hand painted with Dulux trade satinwood timeless, with a solid English oak top finished with fiddes hard wax oil. Recessed hand pulls on the doors and drawers keep the unit light, simple and contemporary. And the ascending upper shelving units follow the pitch of the roof, making good use of the space without overwhelming the room. The clients won't be short of storage space! #bristolfurniture #fittedfurniture #homedecor #homeoffice #storageideas #shelving #woodworkuk #contemporary #interiordesign

Distressed English oak table and benches, with hand painted cabinets and T&G back rests. Table and bench legs are custom coloured steel legs from @stoakedltd. The end of this long thin kitchen was a difficult space to capture pictures and even more difficult to design a dining and storage space for. After a few design variation back and forths between myself and the client we got there, and all parties are overjoyed with the beautiful and functional new heart of the home. #fittedfurniture #distressedfurniture #diningtable #diningroomdecor #oaktable #storageideas #handmade #bristolfurniture

Solid oak and birch plywood wet painting carriers. These were commissioned by @georgejharding.art for a painting road trip. They each carry ten 12 x 10 inch painting boards. Was a fun little project to make something that I wasn't even aware existed. Hopefully these will be treasured pieces to serve a lifetime of creativity.

It's always exciting to use a new tool and technique. Distressing this English oak table top with my new burnisher drum sander has made the grain really come to life, and should look amazing when oiled. Swipe to the side to see the distressing halfway through. #distressedfurniture #oaktable #bristolfurniture

Just freshly installed for a client in Bath a hand painted fitted TV cabinet, with floating solid English oak shelves above. In the right hand alcove of this lounge I installed floor to ceiling floating shelves. For the study I made a mighty 8 foot by 4 foot solid English oak bookcase. Plenty of storage space for the new occupant to unload their many boxes of books and artefacts onto. I'll have to get more pictures once the shelving is populated! #fittedfurniture #floatingshelves #oakfurniture #bookshelf #tvcabinet #bristolfurniture

Just finished this install of bespoke fitted alcove units and floating shelves for some pleased clients. The tops and shelves are stunning, characterful English oak, finished with hard wax oil. The MDF units I hand painted in white satinwood. The client chose the cast iron door knobs which contrast nicely with the crisp white doors, these are hung with concealed soft close hinges. #handmade #woodworking #oakfurniture #contemporaryfurniture #interiordesign #bristolfurniture
