sycamore plank bench or side table

benchrustic vintage style bench shelf   £195

part of a range of milled plank furniture we are making, for use in the home or “insidey outside” places, like conservatories or verandahs etc. What we’ve tried to do is mix old and new, as well as natural curves with clean modern lines. It’s an approach used much in the seventies, in Scandinavian furniture, especially. So it feels a bit retro too. We like it lots. It could sit in a porch with wellies and dog leads on, yet would look great in a modern lounge with a widescreen on it, and media units below. We can make it to measure, with various add-ons and modifications, too.

shelf unit No reason why it can’t be used in the garden,  but with some care; some of these pieces are in less durable timbers, such as this example, in sycamore. Too many rainstorms and days of baking heat would reduce its life somewhat. We’ll be doing some in oak and chestnut for those situations.

tv unitThese sussex grown sycamore planks have been debarked and sanded nice and smooth but without removing the sawmarks from the milling process. The result is a nice mix of the lush and the rugged; the grain shines through, as do the natural ripple burrs that are a classic feature of sycamore. We finish it with an oil to enhance the grain and protect against spillages.

dimensions: 139cm x 29cm x 47cm high

coffee shop tables, made to measure in old pine

pine tableWe made these cafe tables for a coffee shop in Bloomsbury, West London They are simple, strong and hard wearing, yet full of character as they’re made by hand using reclaimed antique pine.  The legs are cut from old joists whilst the tops are antique pine floorboards. The design is deliberately basic and straight-lined, to give an industrial feel. Much of the original marks and nail holes can still be seen, though we’ve ensured that the finish is smooth and splinter free. The tops are made from several planks, glued, clamped and sanded, and any significant holes are filled so that the surfaces are easy to keep clean. Generally, we finish these tables with oil, though they could be varnished or waxed (wax is useless, though it looks nice; vice versa for varnish..). The bases can be painted and distressed or the whole lot can be stained. Please call or email to discuss various other options, like cross bars or chunky tops n stuff..

cafe tableThese examples vary from 60cm x 60cm x 75cm but almost any size can be made. Prices vary according to size and quantity but these ones would work out about £160 each, if you had a few, or £195 for just one. Delivery can be arranged too.
