'River Glass' Cedar Banquet Table with Dovetail jointed Legs & feature Butterfly key Benches

An exquisite, proportionally correct Cedar of Lebanon wooden banquet table that seats 16 – highly figured timber with exposed natural edges running down the centre of the table, gap bridged with shaped, toughened safety glass.

 

INSPIRATION

This piece was inspired by a local tree here in Gloucestershire, which was planted circa 1860 and felled in 2006. As our workshop is located by the mighty River Severn, we shaped the table in line with the flowing contours of the inset river glass. The table & benches are a natural centre piece for any interior and a delight to the touch. This is truly a design from the heart, which we would be happy to adapt for another space.

 Butterfly Key Bench detail. The Fine Wooden Article Co., Gloucestershire, UK.

DETAILS

Made from 10 year seasoned 150 year old Cedar of Lebanon.

Approx. dimensions: L 3100 mm : H 7620 mm : D 1470 mm, with a 4" thick solid top).

The robust character of the timber lends the table and benches a substantial weight and pleasing feel. The top has been finished with a hard-wearing lacquer and the legs and benches have been oiled to enhance the grain, jointing work and natural edged features.

Ancient Yew by its very nature is an extraordinarily slow growing, multi stemmed species which creates an abundance of knots and stunning natural fissures, voids and cracks between stems. Not to mention the amazing grain figuring and colouring the yew is famed for.
Blanketing the wood in its raw form in a translucent epoxy resin enhances its beauty and creates a feature of its natural elegance. This is also an extremely effective method of protection, ensuring a waterproof and water-resistant finish which is both durable and hygienic in a bathroom environment.
The live edged, single slab countertop has mortice and tennon jointed end caps, a technique used to stabilise the piece providing a sense of uniformity to this extravagant and opulent design.
Glossy copper and bronze filings added a depth and twinkle to the epoxy detailing, merging with the diverse colours of the Ancient Yew to accentuate the elegance of the countertop and meld with the colour palette of our client’s statement bathroom.

Design, Build & Installation of a Solid Oak Pergola with Natural Edged Oak Swings

We were invited by our client to design an Oak structure to compartmentalise and separate the outdoor space at his new build property and its garden, which should also house swings for his grandchildren for their interaction and enjoyment of the space.

The brief was a design, build and installation project and is the same process followed for many client projects.
