‘Drift’ console table in oak and brown oak delivered over the weekend. Based on the ‘drift’ coffee table but with a concealed drawer added. I’m very happy with how this came out and so are the proud new owners!

Taking up all of my 8x4 glue up table! These table legs are the biggest bit of laminating I’ve done to date.... real fun and games cramping this up on my own! (Worlds worst guard dog for scale!)

Matching the grain on this mitred console table in brown oak today and laminating some huge leg components (pics to follow)... it’s going to be a great piece when it all comes together!

Here’s a few WIP shots and a finished piece. I recently delivered this ‘Perch’ table in burr walnut and Rippled maple. A joy to make and the new owners were over the moon!

Day 2 of the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair. I’m delighted to have been awarded selected maker by Craft and Design magazine. I’ll have a feature with them in the new year!

I’m at the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair Fair in Manchester till Sunday. I’ve got my ‘Riven’ sideboard on show along with a few smaller pieces. Please come and see me if you’re in the area!

I've made a few of these 'Grizedale' console tables over the last few years but this one is my favourite. I tend to pick a contrast in colour between the legs and top when I make them speculatively but this client wanted oak and burr oak. I love the subtlety of it!

Here's what it currently displays... my dad built these 1/12 replica F1 cars when I was growing up. I'd always been in awe of them so it was great to give them a proper home!

'Honister' vitrine was one of the first pieces I ever made. Named after the mine in the Lake District who supplied the green slate panels. It's a low coffee table/display cabinet.

I'm doing some real bread and butter work this week making kitchen cabinets for a big delivery in just over a fortnight. I'm the meantime I'll be uploading a few older pieces that, unless you've been on my website, you may not be familiar with!

Finally some close up detail shots of the 'Riven' sideboard. You can see the grain better in the stunning veneer supplied by @nantwichveneers in some of these. The rippled ash needs to be seen to be believed!
