The creative challenge of designing with wood...


We have a strong commitment to designing sustainably, which for us starts by understanding what our clients needs and desire. To this we bring our passion for the English hardwoods we work with & woodcraft knowledge. 



We handcraft only from the finest materials and with the greatest care for functional ingenuity and finishing details, inspired by the raw material we have the privilege of working with.  Combining traditional woodworking techniques with the finest modern tools & expertise, we fashion items with integrity that delight – unique, innovative, subtle & beautiful fine articles that stand the test of time.


Our bespoke designer-maker furniture design service draws upon sensitively considered materials & expert craftsmanship for investment or statement pieces that our clients cherish. Whether for interior or outdoor use, an adaptation of an existing design or something entirely new, we would be delighted to lend our skills to your project.

Solid Oak & MDF Room Divider / Bookshelf / Display Unit 0

Solid Oak & MDF bespoke room divider, bookshelf, display unit, handcrafted from sustainable wood by The Fine Wooden Article Co., Gloucestershire, UK.

Bespoke fitted room divider / bookshelf made from our own sustainably sourced Oak and white melamine MDF.


The design process for this commission was informed by our client's aesthetic preferences and lifestyle, and space considerations. It was important for this highly functional room divider/ bookshelf to be durably made & solid whilst staying in keeping with the rest of the space's interior design and light, airy feel.


As we developed the design, we sought to define the space without impinging on a feeling of spaciousness, to bring shape and circulation flow to an otherwise empty space whilst factoring in the client's storage needs & stylistic preference for an open display of personal effects, books, flower vases & subtle indoor lighting.

'X-Leg' Natural Edged Pippy Oak & Glass Dining Table

Pippy Oak Natural Edge Dining Table X Legs with Glass. Designed by The Fine Wooden Article Co., Gloucestershire, UK.


Our ‘X-legs’ Dining Table was inspired by the character of our own Pippy Oak, the size, nature & grain of this particular piece of English wood. We sought to create a contemporary variation on the traditional farmhouse kitchen: working with the nature of our Oak timber whilst using industrial, minimalist structural design.



The Pippy Oak for this dining table was first milled to expose its grain & give it a new lease of life. The shaping of the table was in response to the beauty of its natural grain, and its organic irregularities were further emphasised with the insertion of a central rebated glass panel – a lovely feature which gives the table a feeling of lightness, when it is in truth a very sturdy piece. Indeed, the size of the piece requires careful stabilisation, so we decided to do away with any 'between legs stretchers', instead supporting the table top with fabricated, over-engineered steel brackets powder-coated in a gunmetal finish, bolted through with chromed dome caps & leather washers.

This high-end industrial table is full of details and features: the table top with its 12mm touched glass inset was rebated to the top in order to extend the grain figuring & showcase the industrial quality of fixtures & fittings, rather than cutting the Oak slabs straight.


All in all this is a unique delightful piece with a tactile quality, crafted with care from our own timber – a true focal point for any space & a great conversation starter!


This piece is sold in our SHOP, if you are interested in a similar design please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.




Made from air-dried English Pippy Oak & toughed 12mm thick glass.

The table-top is 10'x4' (3000x1219cm)
