Café Table & Bar Stool set, from Oak Barrel & vintage Tractor Seat

Café Table & Bar Stool set, from Oak Barrel & vintage Tractor Seat. The Fine Wooden Article Go. Gloucestershire, UK.

An ingenious design for a café table and 3 matching bar stools inspired & handcrafted from genuine French Oak wine barrels.

This project was inspired by the up-cycling ethos: breathing new life into old pieces where there is quality wood but perhaps less value on the item's original design. Such commissions challenge us to sensitively consider the materials we are working with & push our imagination & expertise so we create statement pieces that our clients cherish. 

The table is made from original French Oak wine barrel components with 3 legs for optimum stabilization for uneven floors. The table top is finished with weather resistant oil.

The stools are ergonomically designed to match the table in height, and really are amazingly comfortable. They have fabricated steamed ash bands as foot rests & hand-turned oak bosses under the restored powder-coated cast iron seats, which are attached to the legs via a custom-made swiveling bearing system and set to exactly the right angle. Their three-leg design ensures they remain stable on uneven floors such as flagstones.

 

This entirely unique design is perfect for alfresco dining on the patio, on a terrace or for use in hospitality interiors & events.  Should you like a variation on this, please get in touch with us.

We sell it through our SHOP.

Bespoke Bathroom Project - Bespoke Natural Edged, Ancient Yew Bathroom Vanity worktop with Resin Detailing

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 Tree 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.
