Wild New Furniture

Twenty or more years ago I was quite well known as a cabinetmaker and I recently re-visited that era and made a few pieces as gifts. They caught on and neighbours ordered some oak tables and benches and we sold a few more in a local outlets.

Encouraged, I designed and built a couple of coffee tables and a couple of wild cedar plant stands. I enjoyed doing the plant stands – I sought to create a rather alien other worldly piece with a sort of 1930s move set look.

It was great fun and the first one is now on display (by appointment) at our yard. It’s lacquered and waxed and not really compatible with the everyday industriousness at the yard, so give us some warning and we’ll bring it in for you.
