Sitting Room Furniture Wednesday, Apr 25 2018 

New clients from Wadhurst required a fitted bookcase / cupboard unit and a TV cabinet that could be moveable for their newly converted room.

The furniture was finished in F&B All White colour.

The TV cabinet with 2 storage cupboards, DVD drawer and hardware shelves above. Again the wiring required ” hiding ” especially as the unit can be pulled away from the wall, the solution was to have a compartment in the base ( see the pictures ).

Whatever to need to store in your TV cabinet we can make it work.











Study Area in a Two Colour Paint and Oak Finish Wednesday, Apr 25 2018 

This study was created for a client in Hawkhurst, Kent to house the usual paperwork box files and printers associated with running a business.

The colours chosen by her compliment the room beautifully.

The left hand unit houses a printer behind a lift up flap, with file storage below. The right hand drawer cabinet sits forward of the radiator and is fully fitted to the wall behind. The desk top in oak veneered board and oak edging in a light oak finish has a vent for the radiator and cable tidy to access the wiring below. The bookcase has shelves suitable for box files.

Black Bespoke Fitted Bookcase Tuesday, Apr 24 2018 

Mr and Mrs F. previous customers from Northiam wanted a shaped fitted unit in the lounge for various storage on narrow adjustable shelves. The cottage is very quaint though the floor is pretty level and fitting can be a challenge, so the unit was scribed to the adjoining surfaces before spraying.

We had the bookcase spray painted black in a polyurethane based paint by Spraycraft of Bodiam. This paint gives a very hard wearing surface but the main reason for this choice was the even black finish itself, the company did an excellent job.

On installation only a small amount of trimming was required.

The overall effect is stunning.

Funky TV Cabinet in Walnut and Bright Painted Panels Tuesday, Apr 24 2018 

A young couple in St Leonards on Sea came to us with a design for a  TV unit in Walnut to accommodate various hardware, incorporating drawers, doors and flaps to be hand painted adding  texture and brightness to the piece. The eclectic knobs were sourced by Steph.

Wiring is always an issue when so many bits of kit need connecting together but are all hidden below the unit behind the rear support.



Arts and Crafts Style Bookcase and Cupboard Unit Wednesday, Dec 27 2017 

New clients from Seaford wanted a large freestanding bookcase / wall unit incorporating cupboards. After discussions on what was required and after a second draft details from the “Arts and Crafts” period were the primary design features.

The piece was completed in the workshop and spray painted in the chosen colour prior to installation .

On delivery the base section was positioned and assembled. The top section was a different kettle of fish though, requiring fixture to the mid shelf on a set of trestles before  being heaved onto the base. Top moulding was put in place and the unit was tagged to the wall (just stops any movement on the carpet).

Great pleasure to do this job!


Bookcase by the Sea Wednesday, Sep 7 2016 

Today I went back to Seaford in East Sussex to visit John and the bookcase I made and installed a couple of years ago.

The bookcase was made in veneered and European oak in a natural oak lacquered finish, with fully adjustable shelves and scribed to the walls giving a  good close fit.

Bespoke Kitchen Furniture Friday, Jan 2 2015 

Previous clients from Seddlescombe East Sussex required a drawer unit to fit under the butchers block in their kitchen. The design needed to match their other hand made kitchen furniture. The drawers were to be suspended on soft close runners. On the opposite side of the drawer chest, the back had false fronts to give interest.

After careful measuring and use of templates the chest of drawers were made, spray painted and installed, with top, sides and plinth being scribed to the adjacent surfaces. The whole piece tied in very well with the existing kitchen. If you wish to leave comments please do so.

T V unit / Window Seat in Natural Oak Finish Saturday, Oct 19 2013 

This was an interesting project for new clients in East Hoathley, East Sussex, who wanted to combine a TV unit and  window seat beside their inglenook fireplace.

Combining oak and oak veneered board the frame was made and jointed with provision in the back to fully enclose the multitude of wires associated with the TV hardware.

The sliding door also made it possible to access plugs and sockets with little trouble.

This piece was to match a bookcase  made by us earlier in the year.
