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!

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.
