A tree with a view.

The brief for this was a bench round the tree where you could settle with a cup of coffee, looking at the view. But there were three different and rather special views to look at, 
Made of douglas fir, this bench should withstand many years of use without the need to treat the wood with preservative. eventually it will fade to a grey colour, blending in with the trunk it surrounds.

Mike, can you make me a ....

 Not every job is a big one, but they are all just as important.  Quite often the client seen something in a magazine, book, or sometimes a visit to someones home, and this starts an idea. They like what they have seen, but perhaps they want it bigger, or a different shape, or different finish.

Time to clear out the wardrobe?

Need space for all those January sale bargains? Or, do you need a wardrobe, but do not have a wall tall enough for one off the shelf?
This is often a problem with cottages that have dormer windows and sloping ceilings. Making use of those corners is a great way to gain floor space.

Internal fitting options can include hanging rails, fully adjustable shelves, drawers and shoe racks.
External finishes can be oil, wax or lacquer if you want to see the wood, or a huge variety of coloured painted finishes
