Nice to do some dovetails for the first time in a while! Pair of artists storage boxes made with some incredibly figured Welsh olive ash. Finished with hard wax oil for a beautiful and robust finish. #dovetail #dovetails #madeofwood #madebyhand #artsupplies #art #oliveash #bristol

Pippy English oak, live edge floating shelves. Unique, robust and incredible looking. The oak has had all cracks and knots filled with epoxy resin and they've been finished with @fiddes_woodfinishes hard wax oil. Swipe along to see what the oak from @vasterntimber initially looked like. #floatingshelves #floatingshelf #liveedge #waneyedge #rawedge #naturaledge #oakshelves #shelving #kitchen #kitcheninspo #kitchendesign #pippyoak

Resin filled English oak worktops. These were installed just in time for Christmas. In the New year I'll be going back to install upstands and a new windowsill behind the sink. The units were made over 3 years ago by a local maker.  The clients have had a long wait to get it finished with worktops after having temporary chipboard tops for all that time! #worktops #kitchendesign #oakworktops #oakfurniture  #resinwork #woodworkuk

Final coat of hardwax oil just applied to these worktops. Will be fitting them tomorrow. They're incredible characterful, pippy English oak. All knots and cracks have been filled with epoxy resin from @epodex_english. Hopefully they'll look as good in my clients kitchen 🀞#oakworktops #resinwork #rustic #madeofwood #bristolfurniture #bristol #solidwood #epoxy #kitchen #kitchendesign

To go with the huge home office shelving and storage unit I recently did, I was also commissioned to make these 2 desks and complementary drawer units. The beautiful English oak is loaded with characterful grain and knots adding warmth to the simple contemporary design. All oak is finished with Fiddes hard wax oil for a robust long lasting finish. #homeoffice #officedesk #officedesign #oakfurniture #bristolfurniture #drawers #contemporarydesign

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
