Selfridges 2013

Back in the summer of 2013 we were commissioned by Selfridges of Oxford Street, London to produce a very large solid oak trestle table and pigeon hole wall unit for their 'work ware man' window display on Oxford Street.

As you would imagine, both pieces were very heavy, being made from European oak.

The pigeon hole unit was mad as three separate pieces designed to fit together to form the one large unit.

St Barnabas Cathedral.

In 2013 we were proud to be chosen to make, finish and fit this wall to wall break-front unit, along with a wall mounted display cabinet above, to the 'Chapter Room' at St Barnabas Cathedral in Nottingham.

The unit was designed and made to perfectly compliment the existing paneling in the room and the timber used was European oak.

"We were pleased to be entrusted by a North Nottinghamshire church to make a solid timber plinth in celebration of Amnesty International.

The plinth was made by laminating four pieces of solid maple together. Once dry it was shaped, sanded and sprayed to a high gloss finish with severe use lacquer.

The candle holder was inset into the top of the plinth and the barbed wire carefully wound around the candle. The magnificent solid brass plaque was the finishing touch of what is a stunning piece."
