Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all my customers, old and new. I am now back in the workshop, keeping out of the rain and enjoying making a dresser for an alcove in a cottage. I do like the traditional work, but it is lovely having a bit of variety.


I am using oak for the whole drawer which makes a heavy long lasting product. In the past, most drawer linings, backs and anything unseen in a piece of furniture would have been a cheaper softwood. If nothing else it makes the furniture much lighter. Definitely worth thinking about if it is going upstairs!
