One of our bespoke concept designs, this exquisite design is inspired by Peter’s seafaring days and the lively character of the ocean. By its sculptural presence and craftsmanship detail this solid English Oak & glass Coffee Table lends an elegance to interior spaces. 

 

The glass top is recessed into the flowing wave-shaped oak ends, secured with natural leather washers that are fixed with chrome dome caps – in keeping with the nautical feel of the piece.

As shown in the photography below, any naturally occurring gaps in the oak has been filled with photoluminescence fillers, which in the dark give a faint impression of glowing aquamarine veins – just like a night-time seascape. The wood is subtly stained with white wax grain, and over-coated with a satin gloss coating for a durable finish.

 

  Solid Oak & Glass Ocean inspired Coffee Table. Designed & Handcrafted by The Fine Wooden Article Co., Gloucestershire, UK.

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 Swings
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.
