Shipwright launches business making personalised wooden items.

Shipwright Carpenter Wood Working Workshop Peter Meredith, founder, at work showing his bespoke skills. The Fine Wooden Article Company.

 

– A SHIPWRIGHT who specialises in classic yacht restoration has started up a business making personalised wooden items such as benches, swing seats and wine racks.

The Fine Wooden Article Company, which is based in Saul, offers a range of products and services making items out of timber and other hard woods.

The company also makes bespoke upcycled products made from used wood they find from places like Sharpness docks.

They even use Jack Daniel’s whiskey barrels to fashion their handicraft.

Up-cycling involves converting waste material into new products of better quality or for better environmental value.

Founder Peter Meredith, who got into sailing as a teenager and later spent about 15 years as a captain of various wooden sailing ships, said: “After 12 months of trading all aspects of the business are delivering.” –

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.
