One of the most rewarding aspects of undertaking commission based handmade furniture is the designing and making of such unique and thoroughly individual pieces. These are often bespoke cabinets for specific purposes, bespoke console tables or bespoke coffee tables. Some of my more interesting bespoke pieces are shown in the gallery.

I recently made an art deco inspired cocktail cabinet with a matching chest of drawers for an apartment in London. The furniture was constructed from macassar ebony veneers with an ebonised cherry frame with sycamore detailing. The rich, dark exterior veneers contrast amazingly with the brightly lit ripple sycamore and glass interior. The lighting effect is exaggerated by the internally mirrored surfaces and the reflections from the glasses stored inside.

Another quite unique piece I made for an interior in Surrey was the ‘Lattice’ collectors cabinet made with an ebonised oak frame and containing eight crimson veneered drawers.

The cabinet is designed to look exactly the same on all four vertical elevations , the drawer pulls being designed to fit perfectly into the lattice work frame when the drawers are closed. The whole concept was conceived as a contemporary version of a Japanese lacquer cabinet.

I was fortunate enough to receive a commission for a ten foot long solid oak sideboard complete with made to measure shelves. The unit is constructed in two sections, one section with six dovetailed drawers complete with under mounted wooden runners and one section is a twin door cupboard unit. The bespoke turned handles are made from ebonised oak and the metal legs are steel with a black powder coated finish. Although contemporary in appearance the whole piece is constructed using traditional woodworking techniques, with exposed finger joints, dovetailed drawers, frame and panel construction, and finished with a hand applied wax oil finish.

In addition to free standing furniture I also undertake projects incorporating fitted lounge furniture for display or storage and fitted bespoke shelving schemes.
